Citi Cards, which is developing a $93 million operations campus in Flagler Center, put one of its office buildings and a garage in Deerwood Center on the market.

Citi Cards, part of New York-based financial services giant Citigroup, owns or leases about 600,000 square feet of office space in Deerwood Center along Baymeadows Road, between Interstate 95 and Philips Highway.

Reid said the larger building and garage were built in 1992 and sit on 6.75 acres. The office structure is completely occupied and, if sold, there "could be the possibility of a lease-back arrangement," meaning that Citi Cards could continue operating there until it moved.

Citi Cards leases the remainder of the space it uses in Deerwood Center, about 300,000 square feet among three other buildings.

The city approved construction recently for Citi to build a three-story, 513,595-square-foot building at 13350 Durbin Blvd. N. and a one-story, 47,080-square-foot building at 13390 Durbin Blvd. …
