Fondren Place revitalized an underused corner of the vibrant Fondren Historic District in Jackson, Mississippi. The historic Duling School is located in the heart of the district. Canizaro Cawthon Davis master planned the property, adding new urban multi-use buildings to the grounds and proposing new uses for the existing school.
Fondren Place is a 3 story, 40,000 SF building. It contains retail and office tenants. The architecture of Fondren Place recalls the historic buildings of the district.
The Lorena Duling School is a Mississippi Landmark, originally built in 1927 to serve as a public school. The building is restored and renovated for retail and restaurant use. The building serves as a focal point of Fondren Place.
Canizaro Cawthon Davis, in association with Cohen Carnaggio Reynolds, is responsible for master planning, design and construction administration of this project.
