Project of the Month: Jessie Ball duPont Center
One of our projects, the Jessie Ball duPont Center, recently had its grand opening in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The Center houses 12 local nonprofits under one roof, providing affordable office space and fostering collaboration in addressing community needs.
The Jessie Ball duPont Fund completely renovated the historic, mid-century modern Haydon Burns Library into 129,000 square feet of LEED Silver space, with a shared kitchen, "hot desks" available for rent for community members, a lecture hall, gathering spaces, and gardens. NMTC financing allows the Fund to offer its nonprofit tenants below-market rates, which cover only the building's operating expenses. Next time you're in Jacksonville, be sure to check out the beautiful space!
