Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. Corporate Headquarters
Jacksonville-based Fortune 500 company Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. expects to break ground on a new $145 million world headquarters in May. The 12-story, 358,092-square-foot tower will overlook the St. Johns River with a structured parking garage at the intersection of Riverside Avenue and Forest Street. The garage will include 6,000-square-feet of ground floor commercial retail space. An application for civil plan review was submitted to the city in February. Expected to create 500 additional jobs in Brooklyn, the project is intended to provide additional office space following the summer 2019 $43 billion acquisition of Cincinnati-based Worldpay.
Florida Blue Forest Street Parking Garage
Construction is already well underway on a new, 869-space, 269,080-square-foot, four-level parking garage at 800 Forest Street in Brooklyn. Being built for Florida Blue, a construction permit was recently issued by the city on April 8th. Completion of the project paves the way for the development of a $145 million world headquarters for Fidelity National Information Services on an existing 5.71-acre Florida Blue surface parking lot. Designed to eventually include 60-foot-deep retail bays, additional components of the $22.5 million garage include a 0.05-acre public plaza at the intersection of Forest and Magnolia streets. Construction is anticipated to be completed by September 9, 2020.
Construction is now underway on an eight-story, 184-unit luxury apartment development at 959 Prudential Drive. A foundation permit was issued for the project in January, with Louisiana-based Ventures Development Group, LLC. acquiring the 2.89-acre property from Hines SSGP Riverpointe LLC. in March. Situated between the Acosta Bridge and the Eight Forty One building, amenities at the yet-to-be-named project include a clubroom, community kitchen, green space, playground, dog park, third floor pool and deck and an extension of the Southbank Riverwalk. Co-developers Ventures Development Group and Batson-Cook Development Co. expect to open the community in early 2022.
