The Magellan Transport Logistics headquarters (located at 8505 Baycenter Way) is currently under construction/renovation. The east wing of the 47,000 sq. foot building contained lightly used office equipment from a previous tenant. Tenant Contractors Inc, managing the Magellan project, gently sent these objects aside during demolition process. These items and more were donated to the Jacksonville Habitat for Humanity Restore. Donation process was coordinated by Jenna Piatak. Jenna stated, “Magellan was happy to find a philanthropy service provider who can use these objects to benefit our local community. When the east wing was demolished, we found not only office equipment (desks, white boards and chairs) but also building utility pieces (water heaters, cabinets, basins and fixtures) were acceptable donation items. Win for both the community and the environment”.
