1534 Oak Street is a unique mixed-use building in the heart of the vibrant and diverse 5 Points neighborhood. The building contains a new restaurant on the first level, 2 levels of office space, and Jacksonville’s first true rooftop bar and lounge.  The floor plates are approximately 6,400 sq.ft. with an overall building area of  approximately 24,000 sq. ft.

Street LevelThe project strives to strengthen the pedestrian experience in the 5 points area and creates a new “destination” for Jacksonville residents.

Rooftop BarThe roof top bar and lounge takes advantage of the neighborhood views and an un-obstructed cross breeze.

Oak Street CornerThe adoption of the building’s material palette – stone, ipe wood, concrete and metal panels – develop the space as an integral part of the Architecture. The metal panels bring color and contrast to the vertical circulation elements of the building.

Rooftop BarThe fire feature creates a unique focal point for the space.  Planters create a buffer from the edge of the building and create an organic contrast to the building materials.
