The Center for Health Equity designed by WJA and built by our construction arm, WJCreate, is featured in this month’s edition of Florida/Caribbean Architect Magazine. The article begins on page 19.
Our new headquarters, expected to open at the start of the New Year, will be the first new office building constructed in Downtown St. Pete in 15 years! Located on Mirror Lake, the new mixed-use building will include two floors of rentable space ideal for medical, dental, law, tech, or other professional firms, a floor dedicated to the WJA/WJC HQ, and residential condominiums on the top three floors.

This past weekend, the WJ Team presented the “Cuban Roots” installation for Tampa Bay Design Week.
“Cuban Roots” is an installation concept that brings together the history of Ybor City, the creativity of Cuban culture and cuisine, and a future pathway for a sustainable healthy community through the visual and tactile experience of an herb garden. By creating a pop-up Herb garden, we hope to bring forward a public discussion about the urban re-development of Ybor city in the context of a vibrant Cuban history. Farming and locally grown food and cuisine create a unique and iconic culture to Ybor city that is highlighted with a display of herbs common to Cuban food and drink in a creative design of recycled plastic material containers.
