Trimark Properties buys first six floors of the historic Seagle Building

Press release from Trimark Properties

A locally owned and operated real estate developer and property management firm, Trimark Properties, has bought the first six floors of the 11-story historic Seagle Building.

Built in 1926, the Seagle Building has had a storied past, earning it a place on the national registry of historic places. Once the tallest building in Gainesville, it has housed Gainesville landmarks such as the exclusive, membership-only Heritage Club and the original location of the University of Florida’s Natural History Museum. In looking to the future, Trimark is exploring the Seagle Building’s potential, with possibilities including transforming some or all of the currently residential and commercial condos into retail, restaurant, office, or residential spaces.

John Fleming, Trimark’s Managing Partner, was drawn to the space due to his love of the building’s history and architecture. “When I heard that a portion of The Seagle Building was for sale, I was excited to have the chance to be a part of its story,” Fleming said. “My time at Trimark Properties has given me a unique opportunity to preserve and protect historic spaces in Gainesville, like many of the charming residences around UF, or the famous Swamp Restaurant. The Seagle Building is a Gainesville icon, and we’re honored to bring Trimark’s decades of property management experience to the table as we strive to ensure the building’s character and beauty continue to withstand the test of time.”

For over thirty years, Trimark Properties has been a champion of quality in-fill and redevelopment in Gainesville’s urban core. Among those redevelopment projects are more than 60 wholesale renovations of historic structures, preserving each building’s charm and character, while introducing modern amenities and energy efficiencies. This dedication to restoring historical structures to their original splendor has contributed to Trimark winning over 30 city beautification awards.
