We’ve all been watching the building adjacent to the First Baptist Church on 5th Street for years.  Deteriorating slowly, the square footage was a challenge to repurpose, but thanks to a little vision, money and a great plan by Silling Architects, the conceptual plan above may become a reality.  The Harbor View development on South 2nd Street is another development with rooftop deck or features and great potential views.

As a broker and local, I can see the way Downtown Historic Fernandina is going through a kind of reset of value and expectations.  With views like this, a potential improved waterfront and very intelligent changes to C-3 zoning, we’ll see more mixed use in the downtown area and, in my opinion, an extended period of viability to parking as uses create a need at very different times.
