Description
The former Ford Motor Company assembly plant, which was designed by Albert Kahn and built in 1924.  Kahn is best-known for his factory designs, including many built for the Soviet automobile industry. Jacksonville's Model T plant features the massive scale, lack of decoration, and use of modern materials demonstrated in many of Kahn's other industrial buildings.  The building is presently in poor shape and is being used for light industrial purposes and trailer storage.  Its beautiful site on the St. Johns River makes it a candidate for a number of  possible reuse opportunities, most notably as a cruise ship terminal.
