Originally known as Gran Park, Flagler Center is a 1,022-acre business park near the Interstate 95/St. Augustine Road interchange in Jacksonville's Southside.
Citicorp, GSA & Flagler Station
Future growth in Flagler Center will occur along the State Road 9B and Philips Highway/FEC Railway corridors. While largely undeveloped, this area is home to a 600,000-square foot Citicorp credit card operations center, a U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) immigration services office and a large townhome development by Pulte Homes, Inc.
Citicorp' $93 million center opened in 2005 To help the company relocate from Baymeadows, $2 million in incentives were approved by City Council for the construction of a 1.2 mile, four-lane road to access the site from Philips Highway. The building will face SR 9B when it's completed in a few years.
The U.S. General Services Administration's (GSA) 51,600-square foot, Class A office building houses immigration services. This building opened in 2012 after the government spent four years looking for a location around Jacksonville, including downtown.
Flagler Station is a townhome community being developed by Bloomfield Hills, MI-based Pulte Homes, Inc. Currently, State Road 9B is being built through this section of Flagler Center. With land already entitled for new development, this area of Flagler Center could become a hot spot for transit oriented development if JTA is successful at implementing a commuter rail line between Jacksonville and St. Augustine.
