Correction: Pulp in Avondale is officially open. Praise be! Kinda sad though it won't be the running joke anymore on here. ;) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=756945147658314&id=205165212836313&set=pb.205165212836313.-2207520000.1398843994.&source=42

Glad for the projects in Springfield. Always loved that Jacobs building. Was afraid it was gonna fall into total disrepair. The yoga studio in the old Pearl building & old service station on 8th/Liberty is good news as well. I heard from a couple people who lived around it that it was always being squatted in. Lord knows for what.

Nice Update. On the Southbank Riverwalk at the 4/2/14 Noticed meeting on new Docking Rules it was pointed out that the new yet to be built floating dock on the Southbank will have a 10 year no compete clause for one vendor. At this same meeting a handout is also being circulated that violations in the new DIA zone as well as other areas can result in the seizure of your watercraft by various governmental agencies. Councilman Redman feel free to jump in here at any time with that fact. Visit Jacksonville!

The entire city council needs to be applauded for 2014-190 that is the legislation for the completed financing of the Southbank  Riverwalk to the Duval County Public School building.

There is a CRA/DIA meeting today and the DIA Board along with the city council should immediately correct this concern about the new floating docks on the Southbank Riverwalk. Councilman Jim Love Dist. 14 had another brilliant compromise in looking at the Submerged Sovereign Land Lease and how this could be a positive tool for not only this project but other potential economic tactical nodes that would provide a spark for infill organic clusters of waterfront activity that would lead to higher residential density to these coveted Public Access points.

Ennis hope your laughing.

There's more than what was highlighted.

A larger list of renovations, including two other apartment renovation plans, can be found here: http://www.myspringfield.org/news/business-and-development/77-under-construction-spring-2014

No. Has construction in the second half started yet? I didn't notice anything different during my drive last week.

The developers of the Lydia Street houses said they plan on building on the other side of the block and are going to be putting soccer fields in the middle.  There is also work being done (slowly) next to Snap Fitness on Oak.  They are currently working on two storefronts in the strip. 
Great updates and really pumped about all that is happening in Springfield.

I don't think so.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Springfield is really moving along. It's so good to see!

Thanks for this website, much detail.

I looked into the NY steam laundry building and it has great potential following the proposed usage. I really am anxious to see this one pan out. I have been considering a restaurant for a while, but every time I push it forward people (staff to run) bail out on me. I hope it thrives as it is in a pretty decent spot.

I like seeing all the work in the Springfield-Main Street area. As Main St. goes, so goes the neighborhood.

5. The J&J Bar and Judge & Jury- Is this one still a go? It just seems like nothing has really happened since it was included in these updates.

I was told by a member of the masonic lodge that there are still some permitting issues with the building.  I assume that may be the hold up on the plans for the restaurant and their plans to build out office space in the building.
