November 1, 2020 marked the twentieth anniversary of R. Dean Scott, Architect, Inc. maintaining offices in downtown Jacksonville. The firm, then known as Drake/Pattillo & Associates, Architects, Inc., moved from its former quarters in suburban Arlington to its current offices in the downtown core on October 31, 2000. Firm President Dean Scott, commented "We have really enjoyed our location in The Jacksonville Professional Building and our relationship with the building's owner, Jacksonville Area Legal Aid. They have been a great host. The building dates to 1926 and features wonderful brick detailing and an a terrific cornice. We had the privilege of designing restoration of the cornice in 2007. The firm will continue advocating for downtown improvements and working to make those initiatives a reality. Being in the heart of downtown most every day facilitates those efforts."
