The building will be five floors and used for shops, restaurants, cafes, art studios, office's and residential living.

Craig Huffman, the architect says, "This project is going to be a state of the art project. It's going to be a new standard in terms of green architecture, in terms of mixed use. It's really going to be an exciting place in Tallahassee."
