The plans for downtown's latest high-structure are beginning to take shape. Assuming the Jacksonville City Council and Land Use and Zoning Committee provide their approval this month, the construction of Baptist MD Anderson's proposed 12-story cancer center could be completed by early 2018. Here's a brief look the project's proposed site and massing plans.


The proposed pedestrian bridge is intended to be aesthetically pleasing and will feature high-performance glass to provide the impression of lightness and transparency.


As a part of this project Baptist MD Anderson will construct a shared-use path along Children's Way and Nira Street, between Palm Avenue and the FEC railroad tracks. Eventually, this path will connect with Riverside (via the Fuller Warren Bridge shared-use path), the Skyway's Kings Avenue Station and the Southbank Riverwalk.


A closer look at the 8' shared-use path proposed along Nira Street.
