Bisbee Building

Description

Bisbee Building 2, Jacksonville, Fl. This ten-story reinforced concrete building was designed by prominent Jacksonville architect H.J. Klutho. The Bisbee Building is an excellent example of the high-rise architectural concepts that were pioneered in Chicago. Jacksonville’s first “skyscraper” faces an uncertain future. It features Chicago style windows framed by limestone piers and terra cotta details. It was Florida's tallest building at that time. William A Bisbee was the owner of the building, and housed many business offices. It was built in 1908-1909.
