Kelly Lot Redevelopment
The Quincy CRA, in 2017, purchased a site known as the “Kelly Lot.” It is located on the southwest corner of West Franklin Street and North Adams Street and is less than one block from the Courthouse Square.
The site consists of two parcels. Parcel one is 17 West Franklin Street and parcel two is 116 North Adams Street. This one-acre site represents the largest infill parcel north of the Courthouse within the Downtown CRA District. Although the site consists of two parcels the City of Quincy’s Downtown Master Plan recommended they be combined and redeveloped as one development.
Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) deemed the property as a “brownfield area.” Florida DEP, using State funds, has monitoring wells (drums) underneath the site. These drums are tested on a routine basis.
The Quincy CRA, with the approval of Florida DEP is moving forward to remove concrete/asphalt from the redevelopment site. Further, the Board has engaged the services of Joel Sampson, AIA to provide conceptual designs for the redevelopment.
