Tallahassee redevelopment


The City of Tallahassee is beginning to negotiate the sale of the Firestone Building and Bloxham Annex to the North American Properties company. The properties are located at the corner of Gaines and Gadsden Streets, just east of Cascades Park. NAP hopes to replace the abandoned state offices with a mixed-use community, complete with residential housing, and space for retail, dining and entertainment venues.

In January 2016, a Texas developer bought Tallahassee’s Market Square shopping complex. Now the new management is spurring some business owners to leave.

Tallahassee officials have confirmed the redevelopment of a second large property along North Monroe Street. A Boca Raton-based developer has its eyes on an Albertson’s supermarket, vacated long ago.

Largely a result of a messy company reorganization and mounting pressure from competitors like Publix, grocery chain Albertson’s was essentially crowded out of the Florida market in the early 2000s. Tallahassee lost its last Albertson’s in 2005 with the closure of a North Monroe Street location.
