The buyer, a Miami investor, also owns nearby EverBank Center.
Miami-based property investor Ramon Llorens acquired more property in Downtown.
A deed executed Wednesday and recorded Friday shows that a group led by Llorens purchased the Greyhound bus station at 10 N. Pearl St., across the street from the EverBank Center, which he also owns.
The purchasing entity is AK Pearl LLC. It paid Greyhound Lines Inc. $2.78 million for the 1.21-acre site.
The station will remain in operation while its replacement is under construction as part of the Jacksonville Transportation Authority’s new $33 million Regional Transportation Center.
The new station will be in the first phase of the project, located in LaVilla off Stuart Street bounded by Forsyth and Houston streets.
"We're excited to move into the new facility next year as it will greatly enhance the experience for our customers and allow travelers to have seamless connectivity to various modes of transportation," said Lanesha Gipson, spokeswoman for Greyhound Lines.
Llorens has acquired several pieces of property in Jacksonville.
In 2015 and 2016, he bought 250 acres along New Berlin Road through Dames Point LLC.
Since September 2014, through ownership groups, he bought the EverBank Center, property in the Talleyrand area that includes the former Ford Motor Co. plant, the New Berlin Road property, Southbank riverfront commercial buildings, a Downtown parking garage at 336 W. Bay St., and a 2.78-acre parking lot at Hogan and West Bay streets near the parking garage.
There is no indication so far regarding his plans for the site.
Llorens could not be reached for comment.
