San Marco Building
San Marco Building, Jacksonville, Fl.
In the 1920’s, Telfair Stockton & Company developed an 80-acre subdivision named San Marco. At the heart of the development is the San Marco Square, a shopping district, whose name was taken from the St Mark's Square in Venice. It is an artsy shopping, dining and entertainment district just south of downtown Jacksonville.
The San Marco Building was the first commercial structure built on San Marco Square in 1926-27, designed by Marsh & Saxelbye, in the Mediterranean Revival style. Today it's the home of a popular establishment called Square One. This is a center for cocktails, entertainment, billiards and private functions.
