JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – July 15, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Cushman & Wakefield is pleased to announce the grand opening of the highly anticipated SunTrust Tower parking garage in downtown Jacksonville.
The six-story, 600-space garage, located at 37 South Hogan Street, opened on July 1, 2015. The garage is adjacent to the SunTrust Tower, a building acquired for $31 million in April 2015 by a joint venture between Mainstreet Capital Partners and CarVal Investors. Mainstreet Capital Partners is a Fort Lauderdale-based real estate investment and management firm and CarVal Investors is a leading global alternative investment manager.
“This is a watershed moment for both downtown Jacksonville and the SunTrust Tower,” said Mainstreet President Paul Kilgallon. “We’re all-in on Jacksonville’s downtown revitalization efforts. This garage will help alleviate the current dearth of parking while reinforcing SunTrust Tower’s long-standing reputation as a Jacksonville landmark.”
The opening marks the end of a 19-month construction phase. The garage will be used by SunTrust Tower tenants, downtown visitors, and guests of The Landing – a waterfront retail, dining, and entertainment venue. The structure is accessible via Bay and Hogan Streets and will offer ground-floor retail in the future.
The state-of-the-art project received $3.5 million in incentives from the City of Jacksonville in exchange for the public use of 200 spaces on weekdays and 375 spaces on weekends. A reserved space in the garage is expected to cost $155 per month with unreserved spaces priced at $115 per month.
“There is a lack of convenient parking in the urban core downtown,“ said Cushman & Wakefield Senior Director Traci Jenks, exclusive leasing agent for SunTrust Tower. ”This garage will fill a huge need for businesses, which are increasingly moving downtown, and is a catalyst for more development.”
The SunTrust Tower is a Class A, 23-story, 369,408-square-foot office building offering a central location in the Jacksonville CBD within walking distance of restaurants and hotels, exceptional waterfront views, access to a high-speed fiber data connection along Laura Street, efficient floor layouts, on-site property management, 24-hour security, and the potential for tenant signage.
Leasing interest has increased since construction on the garage began. For more information, please contact Traci Jenks at (904) 731–9500.
