Wisses plan multifamily development at Ashley and Hogan

Ellen Wiss said she and her husband plan for a Phase 2 multifamily development of 60 units on the parking lot site to complement the larger development they plan nearby, creating a total of about 260 units in addition to some retail use.

That will depend on creating enough parking for those units.

 The Wisses bought property in February 2020 from First Baptist bounded by Beaver, Julia, Ashley and Hogan streets that includes a four-story, 20,000-square-foot structure built in 1954 and a two-story, 10,000-square-foot building completed in 1947.

The couple plans a more than $40 million adaptive reuse of the site.

Good for them for preserving the existing buildings. Hope they can maintain that as plans (and costs) are developed.

It seems "parking" is an issue with the plan. I hope they can work out a deal with First Baptist for spaces in one of the FBC garages.

Between the First Baptist properties, the Jones Bros building, Independent Life, Ambassador Hotel, Marine Bank, Laura Street Trio, the new JEA HQ, the Vystar Campus, the old Fire Station and Ashley Square apartments theres actually a ton going on in that half a mile or so radius. I take it all these projects as of today are still going ahead as planned? Even if one or two fall apart or don't deliver quite what is intended at the moment thats a good amount of things going on that will have a positive impact on the city.

These are the bread and butter projects the city needs. That area of the Urban Core looks in good hands. The Bay Street corridor and the Riverfront is my main concern now. Ford on Bay, Berkman, Shipyards, Landing, about as clear as mud.
