They say the greenest building is an existing one. However, Eco Relic's reuse of Baker & Homles' former Stockton Street warehouse may be one of the most sustainable concepts in Jacksonville.

This is a really cool place. The place is huge and has a lot of stuff. I was there just yesterday looking at the first light fixture you featured. Great addition to the area, and from all the times I have driven by, it seems to be attracting some descent traffic to it.

Nice building. I went by Sat. and saw the Open flags outside. Instead I went by and checked out McCoys Creek. Will stop by soon. Another nice addition. Any taxpayer money involved? Or just determination. Thanks for the article.

I really need to check this place out. I rode by on my bike the other day after trying a different route home.

I don't believe taxpayer money was involved. Just a business opening up to meet a niche in the marketplace.

I wish there was one in Tallahassee.  We do have a Habitat Restore, but very small by comparison with the Jax store. 

Another great addition, I wish them success.

This reminds me alot of the old "Solomon's Warehouse" on Beach Blvd near San Pablo that closed several years ago.

Solomon's still has a smaller place on Atlantic and Art Museum.
