The Florida Times-Union staff will move within six months to a new downtown location in Jacksonville from riverfront offices the daily newspaper has occupied for 51 years.

The Times-Union reported that its news, advertising and accounting staff will move into 27,000 square feet of second-floor space at a 35-story office building called the Wells Fargo Center by the end of March.

The newspaper has operated since 1967 at 1 Riverside Avenue in Jacksonville, which is owned by the Morris family of Augusta, Georgia.

The Morris family acquired the Times-Union and its 18-acre property along the St. Johns River in 1982.

Last year the family sold the newspaper to Gatehouse Media but retained the property and intends to redevelop it.

The Times-Union closed its printing operation at 1 Riverside Avenue early this year and moved production of weekday editions to Gainesville and the Sunday edition to Daytona Beach. [Jacksonville Daily Record]Mike Seemuth
