“Perdue Office Interiors is proud to be a part of downtown Jacksonville’s revitalization,” said Vince McCormack, Perdue President. “5 West Forsyth and Perdue have a long, storied history in this city.

According to Jenks, Jacksonville remains a target market for office users and investors looking to capitalize on a favorable environment for acquisitions.
