CITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE
DEPARTMENT OF HISTORIC PRESERVATION & HERITAGE TOURISM
Commercial Lease
i-- MISCELLANEO.US .



GOVERNMENT HOUSE: This "L" shaped building was completely rebuilt in 1936 with the exception of some of the coquina walls in the east wing. The building is a two story,
concrete encased, steel frame structure, with poured-in-place concrete floors, covered in most sections with hardwood flooring. Utiity area floors are exposed concrete.
The lobby floor is terrazzo. A small basement exists under a portion of the west wing. Dorrs, windows, and trim are clear cypress in areas not subsequently modified.
The gabled roof is covered with flat clay tile with the exception of several small sections of built-up flat roof on the east and west sides of the west wing. Climate control is obtained
by a number of central systems controlling various sections of the building. There are also window units in some of the curatorial, storage and laboratory sections.

TOTAL SQUARE FEET: ca. 21,500

DATE ACQUIRED: 1967
ACQUIRED BY: Quit claim transfer from the U. S. Government
DEED RESTRICTIONS: The building reverts to the U. S. Government if not transferred to an authorized public owner.

PRESENT USE: Administrative offices, collections and research facilities, static museum exhibit, reception area, and leased food service area.

BUILDING TYPE: Restoration/Reconstruction/Adaptive Use Additions.

LEGAL DESCRIPTION: West Plaza Lot.

CONDITION: The basic fabric of the building is sound, although there is evidence of water penetration through some of the stucco finishes which is causing oxidation
of the underlying steel components. This is particularly
apparent over a number of windows and the second floor balcony supports facing the court yard on the west wing. The wiring, although not currently a life safety
factor, has reached its life expectancy and should be renewed. There was also damage to the main distribution panels due to a plumbing failure that resulted in
basement flooding. There have been numerous additions to the branch circuitry, the bulk of which have been run in exposed metal conduit, adversely affecting the aesthetics of the building.
The plumbing supply is, for the most part, run in brass piping, and is in good condition. The drain-waste-vent piping is in poor condition, and should be replaced
immediatley. Both the flat and tile roof sections should be replaced in the near future. There is evidence of structural failure associated with the north balcony.
A structural engineer should be consulted to assess this problem. The exterior basement doors have deformed and rusted due to the basement flooding.

LIFE SAFETY ISSUES: Expansion of the automatic sprinker system, and installation of automatic door closures. See also the 1996 State Fire Marshall's
report for additional corrections.

ADA COMPLIANCE STATUS: Modification to the existing wheelchair ramp for access to the interpretative exhibit is needed. The balance of the building does not comply in regards to access.

ESTIMATED COST TO MEET CITY STANDARD: The Board has applied for a $360,000 state historic preservation grant to correct some of the deficiencies noted
in the "conditions" section above. A systematic functional evaluation of the building should be undertaken I order to gain maximum utilization of the spaces available.
It is not possible to closely estimate costs associated with this until the study is undertaken, although they will be considerable, probably in the range of $750,000.
There is also no guarantee that the State will fund Historic Preservation grants during this session of the legislature.


HISTORICAL RESOURCES GRANTS-IN-AID AWARDED TO CITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE ON 09/97 A TOTAL OF $450,000.

GRANT FUNDS: $100,000 For Sprinkler System ASSESSED VALUE: $1,004,680
