In 2015, the amount of downtown redevelopment proposals kicked it up a notch. Looking forward to 2016, here are five projects and points of discussion that have the potential to "TransForm Jax".
1. Tower Cranes Return to Downtown
We actually predicted this for 2015. Unfortunately, things go a lot slower in Jax than we would like. Beacon Riverside was put on ice and we never got off the pot with the Laura Trio. Nevertheless, there's at least two major projects that should get underway in 2016. Both, the Southbank's Baptist Health's Southbank Cancer Center and LaVilla's Houston Street Manor projects should start well before the end of the year.
