Tour of TB&W Building
It was a magnificent structure that was once filled with fraud but now sits empty. TV20 got an inside look at the former Taylor Bean and Whitaker building in Ocala.
The building houses 74,000 square feet of space, along with a list of perks including suede wall paper, liquid infused floor tiles, and it's own bank. The FBI raided and shut down TB&W 2009, becoming one of the largest mortgage fraud schemes in history. But now the search is on for a new tenant that can bring the community jobs.
"We've kind of focused our search on entrepreneurial companies that are in health care, the sciences and financial services," Sperry Van Ness Managing Director, Bartow McDonald told TV20.
Marion County is also pitching in with a long list of incentives.
The price of the building has come down to about $6.9 million- half of the asking price just months ago.
