NAI Hallmark represented the sale of the 21,246 SF office property located at 6745 Phillips Industrial Blvd in Jacksonville, FL by JUMAR Investments, LLC to Pace Center for Girls, Inc. who will be relocating their national office from their current Adams Street location. The move will ultimately result in a cost savings for the organization so more funds can be directed towards their life-changing services for girls.
Pace Center for Girls CEO Mary Marx said, “We came to NAI Hallmark with a unique set of needs for our office. We needed a space that would support our ambitious strategic growth and advocacy plan; serve as a learning center for girls and staff alike; and help raise awareness around the needs of our girls. NAI Hallmark was not only able to deliver on those needs, they also found a space that allows donors to be a part of our growth via our capital campaign. Jacksonville is where Pace Center for Girls was founded, so it was of paramount importance we keep the national office in the city that’s facilitated the growth and support of so many girls over three decades.”
“We’re always looking at leading-edge learning models and efficiencies. This facility provides the opportunity to build an innovative, centralized ‘library’ of learning we can leverage statewide and ultimately nationally,” added Pace Center for Girls COO Yessica Cancel.
“It has been an honor working with Pace Center for Girls to secure a property that would create a dynamic workplace for their exceptional staff and allow them to serve more girls across the state of Florida and the community at large,” said Christian Harden, Principal of NAI Hallmark.
The property is located in Jacksonville’s Butler/Baymeadows Submarket on Phillips Industrial Boulevard off of Philips Highway on 3.69 acres in the Phillips Commercial Park.
