Modis Building, Jacksonville, Fl.
The Wells Fargo Center is a skyscraper in Jacksonville, Florida. Standing 535 feet (163 meters) tall, it is the city's second-tallest building. It was formerly known as the Independent Life Building and the Modis Building, among other names. It took its current name in 2011, when Wells Fargo signed a deal to move into the building and acquire the naming rights.
The tower was completed in 1974 by the Independent Life and Accident Insurance Company, and was known as the Independent Life Building. It was designed by KBJ Architects, who received the Honor Award for Outstanding Achievement in Design. In 2002 it was renamed Modis Building.
In May 2011, Wells Fargo, which had acquired the Wachovia financial services company, announced it would relocate local employees to the building. Signage went up on the Wells Fargo Center on September 26 and the relocation completed by April of 2012.
