(Jacksonville, FL – June 2, 2011) The U.S. General Services Administration has selected the development team of General Capital Group and Duke Realty Corporation (Duke Realty) to build a 2-story, 48,000-square foot Class A office building in Jacksonville. Duke Realty will be the general contractor of the facility to be developed at Flagler Center, a 4-million-square foot business park located in South Jacksonville near the I-95/St. Augustine Road interchange.
Duke Realty will oversee the design of the facility for LEED® CI (Commercial Interior) certification, a validation awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council to projects that incorporate environmentally sustainable features. General Capital Group, which is the owner-developer of the project, will lease the space to GSA. The facility will be completed in February 2012.
“We are excited to continue our successful partnership with General Capital Group with the development of another Class A project, and to be selected to construct this facility for the General Services Administration. We appreciate the opportunity to continue our valued relationship with the federal government by providing high-quality space for its agencies,” said Doug Irmscher, senior vice president of Duke Realty’s Central Florida Operations. “Our experience and expertise in the LEED design and certification process will serve us well in delivering high-quality, sustainable space for their operations.”
Based in Fox Point, Wisc., project partner General Capital Group is a leading developer of retail, industrial and office properties.
