Coca-Cola Bottling Plant

Fort Lauderdale, FL

Once the home of the Coca-Cola Bottling Plant on South Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale, the building has a twin in Ocala. That sibling, from 1939, has been restored, and in studying it, SRS can match details and features that are missing from the Fort Lauderdale building. Built in 1938, the Fort Lauderdale structure was designed by architect Courtney Stewart in the Mission/Spanish Revival style of architecture.

Our scope is to restore existing windows and reroof the building, replicate missing doors and windows on the historically designated West and South elevations, and provide new doors and windows on the East and North elevations as required for a future County tenant to inhabit the building, and repair and/or replace existing stucco.

Additionally, SRS is tasked with planning for future interior vertical circulation; provide infrastructure for water, sanitation, storm drainage, electrical, and telecommunications functions; and provide ADA accessibility to the perimeter of the building. SRS thanks Ocala’s The Gartner Group restoration team, Austin Historical’s work on window assessment, and The City of Fort Lauderdale Historic Preservationist for invaluable insights and experience.
