Rubin to purchase Atlantic Boulevard office building
Mark Rubin plans to transform the office building at 1639 Atlantic Boulevard into a “landmark” building with retail and office space.

The East San Marco project may be in limbo, but that is not going to stop San Marco developer Mark Rubin from refurbishing an office building across the street.

Rubin Companies, a new name for Rubin’s development and construction firm, which was formerly called AccuBuild, has a contract on the Family Counseling Services Building at 1639 Atlantic Blvd. The building is located next door to Rubin Companies headquarters at 1649 Atlantic Blvd.

Rubin said he intends to completely repurpose the two-story, 7,500-square-foot building, making it into a San Marco landmark. “We will have a retail component. Atlantic Boulevard needs more retail,” Rubin said, adding he could easily put a restaurant in the space because he owns all the parking around the building – a total of at least 40 spaces – and will reconfigure the parking lot.

The building, which was built in 1960, is owned by Family Counseling Services, Inc., and its current assessed value is $928,700, down from $940,600 in 2016. Due diligence has already been done on the building and the closing is set for the second week of May, Rubin said.

The project is currently in its design phase with Cronk Duch Craftsmen LLC as the architect.
