Bank of America approved the first phase of $ 18 million of Southside renovations | Jax Daily Record | Jacksonville Daily Record


The city issued the first phase of six permits, totaling $ 18.1 million in labor costs, for the Bank of America’s estimated $ 150 million renovation and update for its Jacksonville operations center in 9000 Southside Blvd. in the Avenues district.

The North Carolina-based financial services organization will renovate and update the 800,000 square feet of space it leases in five buildings.

The first six permits cover approximately 170,000 square feet spread over four buildings. The city issued the permits from October 18 to 28.

Bank of America Jacksonville President Mark Bennett said on Oct. 18 that the three-year renovation project “demonstrates our continued commitment to be a part of the Jacksonville community and our continued efforts to make Bank of America a place where it is good to work for our employees ”.

The center houses part of the bank’s customer contact operations call center and technology operations support.

The first phase consists of individual and partial floors between buildings 200, 300, 500 and 600. Marand Builders Inc. and Auld & White Constructors LLC are the contractors.

The first phase is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022.

The company has confirmed that it will add a parking garage, but that is not part of the $ 150 million project.

Bank of America has not said when it will apply for more permits.
