LIVE / WORK / PLAY
An address that lets you blend your home and work
lives under one remarkable, restored roof.
Originally built in 1916 as Southside Grammar School, The Lofts San Marco was purchased by Cesery Companies in 2001 and redeveloped into San Marco's first lofts (38 units of live / work / play project). While it is similar to those exclusive live / work lofts found in other metropolises such as New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Atlanta, the Lofts San Marco has its own unique charm. Now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Lofts San Marco served as a public elementary school until 1971 and later as a book repository for the Duval County School Board. The 47,144 - Square foot building that sits on 2 acres in the heart of San Marco retains much of its original character, even to the carefully restored original hardwood floors and slate chalkboards still on some walls.
A historic school building graduates to become The Lofts San Marco, an address that lets you blend your home and work lives under one remarkable, restored roof. Friendly zoning allows commercial, residential and office use, while light-filled space beneath high ceilings gives you room to breathe, create and enjoy. The live/work environment is especially suited to light commercial, freelancers and independant professionals such as artists, graphic designers, counselors or architects. The Loft's design offers a variety of one-level floor plans and unique two-story units. There are also three newly constructed, AIA award-winning townhomes with garage, hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, washers and dryers, and more.
