As Jacksonville University moves its College of Law to 121 Atlantic Place Downtown, Workscapes is moving from the Downtown building to Dennis + Ives in the Rail Yard District.

“While we have enjoyed our ‘corner of Forsyth and Hogan,’ which has served us well, we did not hesitate to support this project relocating JU to 121 Atlantic Place,” said Jacksonville Market President Christie Hill in an email Nov. 20.

“It is a mutually beneficial move for all of us committed to the revitalization of Downtown.”

Hill said Workscapes has leased 5,000 square feet of space at 121 W. Forsyth St. for 10 years.

Workscapes, a commercial furniture and design company, leases part of the ground floor. JU will lease that space and three floors above it for the College of Law.

Hill said Workscapes worked with landlord International Management Company to vacate before the lease expires in April.

Dennis + Ives is a mixed-use development at 1505 Dennis St. in the Rail Yard District, the industrial Beaver Street area west of Interstate 95 and Downtown.

The Dennis + Ives Creative Office Building is the first phase of a multiphase mixed-use project that will include office, coworking, food and beverage, experiential retail, designer showroom, residential, entertainment and event space.

The project comprises 103,600 square feet of commercial space on 7.7 acres next to I-95 zoned for office, retail, restaurants and residential.

Tampa-based Workscapes opened in Jacksonville in 2013.

Its Florida offices are in Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa.

It provides space planning and design; Buildscapes to customize interior space; flooring; corporate signage and wayfinding; and delivery and installation services.
