Jacksonville, FL, sets its sights on downtown hub for nonprofit headquarters, as it turns 60s-era public library into office space for a number of groups.
"Walking inside the new, elegant and streamlined building that hopes to be a nonprofit mecca in Downtown, it’s hard to imagine it stripped down to nothing. In June of last year, however, that’s what it was: a gray, empty and bare shell, save for the iconic blue mosaic that's been a staple of the building, the former Haydon Burns Library, since the 1960s. Since then, construction has moved ahead swiftly. In less than a year, the Jessie Ball duPont Center has readied spaces for the 14 nonprofits that will move in over the year..." -- Alexa Epitropoulos, the Jacksonville Business Journal
