Lost Jacksonville

A century ago, Jacksonville was the center of a highly progressive architectural community. Over time, we have become a conservative community with little regard for the importance of architecture in our urban landscape. Here is a collection of images showcasing several significant structures that no longer exist in the downtown area. A few came down in fires; others were replaced by larger structures. Most were simply torn down and replaced with parking garages and surface lots. Hopefully, one day reminders showing what we have lost will provoke our community to work harder to save what's left.


67. SE corner of Forsyth & Julia (current location of BB&T Tower and surface parking lot)

68.  Independent Life Building - SE corner of Bay & Laura

69. Germania Club - Riverside Avenue in Brooklyn

70.  Flagler Hotel -

71. Floridian Hotel
