The Urban Facelift Project #8 (11 N Ocean Street) and Two More Independent Submissions:
For UFP # 8 we’ve traveled back south into the borders of Downtown Jacksonville, to Ocean Street. Anyone coming over the Main Street bridge into downtown should know exactly where this building is (hint: as your coming off the bridge, look right.) The existing building at 11 ocean shares some similarities to a previous UFP, #2 (118 Main), both are two story brick structures with large openings in the facade and only have an adjoining building to one side. Hopefully 11 Ocean won’t share one aspect of 118 Main: being torn down in less than 3 weeks after being posted as an Urban Facelift Project.

The first one comes from David Welch. David’s reimagined the building at 803 Price Street as a southwestern themed restaurant, Pueblo’s. We loved the graphic treatment that David added to the facade, and think it was a great touch:

1901 Hill Street:
Jeremiah Russell picked a fantastic canvas with the old Ford Assembly Plant at 1901 Hill Street and we think his idea of turning the structure into raw loft spaces is a great idea:
