City Engineers Building

Description

City Engineers Building, Jacksonville, Fl.

In October, 1911, the Board of Bond Trustees selected the firm of W. P. Richardson & Company, to construct the building using Richardson's own design for the reinforced-concrete frame. In November of 1911, the committee approved changing the building to three stories, and apparently the present configuration of the building was then finalized. The architect of this building is still unknown. The City Engineer's Building was renovated in 1983 by Florida Junior College, and it is one of the most handsome vintage buildings left on Main Street. It is built in the Prairie style school, in 1911-1912.
