Summit Commercial Group Converting Office Space to Restaurant and Roof-Top Bar
Summit Commercial Group is building River & Post Restaurant and Rooftop Bar that will occupy the 1st floor and rooftop of Summit Tower at 1000 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL. There are many logistical and construction challenges due to the current infrastructure in a building that was never designed to have a full service restaurant on the first floor and rooftop occupancy. In addition, a full remodel of the lobby and common area will be built concurrently.
The ground floor restaurant will include indoor dining, bar, and kitchen. The square footage inside is approximately 6,200, with another 835 square feet of patio dining. The ninth floor is approximately 900 SF of indoor bar and 2,400 SF of outdoor rooftop seating.
Electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems have to be increased to handle the increased loads on the first floor including the addition of grease traps, additional electrical service, and a new natural gas piping system. The kitchen floor area has to be raised to accommodate slopes required for floor drains, since the slab could not be removed due to the building’s monolithic mat footing.
For the comfort of rooftop guests a contemporary fully retractable canopy system will be installed, with LED lighting and protection from rain as well as sun. This is a first of its kind in Northeast Florida. While the 9th floor has structural capacity for use, many additional modifications have to be made to handle the number of occupants: previously only one elevator serviced the 9th floor and now two elevators service the 9th floor; a new pedestal paver system over the existing roof will be installed as the new flooring system; new handrail systems around the perimeter; installation of roof top natural gas fireplaces; increasing the elevator lobby size to meet local codes; increased restroom facilities to meet code.
The restaurant construction and lobby renovations will culminate Summit Commercial Group’s conversion of 1000 Riverside into a Class A Office/Mixed Use space for Padgett Premiere Properties. Construction began in April 2017 and is anticipated to be completed in September 2017.
