Plans filed for VyStar's Downtown headquarters breezeway

The walkway between the headquarters campus buildings is designed for amenities and art features.

Prosser Inc. filed civil engineering plans with the city June 17 for the VyStar Credit Union breezeway at the Jacksonville-based financial institution's Downtown headquarters.

VyStar bought the block comprising the 76 S. Laura St. tower, the 100 W. Bay St. building and a parking structure and is reconstructing the paved breezeway between them.

VyStar Credit Union wants to redevelop the breezeway between its office buildings and parking garage to include amenities and art elements.

It previously filed plans with the St. Johns River Water Management District for the project.

The breezeway will replace the existing alley that is used for pedestrian traffic and parking use between the garage and the buildings.

An exhibit shows planters, sidewalk and hardscape space.

VyStar renovated the 23-story tower and is completing renovations of the seven-floor West Bay Street building for a campus to house its corporate headquarters and about 1,000 employees.

VyStar bought the tower and garage in July 2018 and the West Bay Street building in February 2019.

President and CEO Brian Wolfburg said a year ago that he expects to create indoor and exterior amenities for VyStar employees, including sculptures; shipping containers to house pop-up retail, like farmers markets; and other features, including at the food truck court along Hogan Street. 

The Bread & Board restaurant owners announced in March they will open a food marketplace on the ground floor of the 100 W. Bay St. building.
