In 2014, the redevelopment in and around downtown finally kicked into an extra gear. Looking forward to 2015, here are five projects and points of discussion that have the potential to.....as Mayor Alvin Brown would say... "take Jacksonville to the next level".
3. Edgewood Avenue: The Next Hot Walkable District

A year ago, we predicted that Hendricks Avenue would be the next walkable district to emerge within the urban core. With the openings of JPMorgan Chase Bank, V Pizza, the redevelopment of Hendricks Plaza and the potential addition of East San Marco, Hendricks is well on its way. Now it's time to select another neighborhood epicenter that's ready for a comeback. With the recent openings of Maple Street Biscuit Company, Bold Bean Coffee Roasters, KNEAD Bakeshop, Community Loaves and other businesses, our eyes are on Murray Hill's Edgewood Avenue for 2015.
