Greenleaf & Crosby Building

Description

Greenleaf and Crosby Building 4, Jacksonville FL.

The Greenleaf & Crosby Building (1927) is known as one of the finest downtown works of Marsh & Saxelbye. The Greenleaf & Crosby clock was erected on the corner of Laura and Adams Streets in 1901.

Greenleaf & Crosby Company planned to erect a six-story building on the northwest corner of Laura and Adams Street. The building was to have been designed in such a manner that it could be expanded to twelve stories at a later date. This shows the twelve storied building. The Laura and Adams street facades are extensively decorated with terra-cotta panels depicting griffins, eagles, urns, and floral motifs. The lower facade is highlighted by engaged pilasters and a grand two-story vaulted entrance. The building is well maintained and is one of the finest downtown works of Marsh and Saxelbye.
