The District should be under construction by this fall!

The Southbank is primed for development hopefully.

Good news. Can anyone post the updated site plans? That link is subscription only.

Have they announced who they are partnering with to get the project done? Neither Rummell nor Munz are "boots on the ground" developers. I hate to be pessimistic, but until we know who will actually be executing the plan and where the funding is coming from I will not hold my breath.

Michael Munz, a partner in the group with Peter Rummell, said the townhomes are still being mapped out, but that he anticipates 45-65 of them. They’d be two or three stories with individual garages and would be for sale, not rent. Prices have not been determined, he said.

Munz said the new master plan, finished last week, will be the final plan submitted to the Downtown Development Review Board. It includes other changes:

Restaurants had been scattered through the 30-acre site of the former JEA Southside Generating Station. Now, two restaurants are planned on each side of the 4.5-acre public park on the river. A fifth restaurant would go into the riverfront hotel.

The center of the property had featured two apartment buildings, but an office tower that had been farther from the river has been moved there. All three buildings will have retail, possibly including more restaurants on the ground floors.

The space between the two apartment buildings had been designated as a road. Now it’s a pedestrian walkway.

Reading this, it sounds like the anticipated ground breaking is 6 months behind previous press releases. It was supposed to break ground this summer. However, the FTU article makes it sound like December 2016 or early 2017.

This summer's ground-breaking was based on Equity Resources developing the apartments. It's not involved any more and they need to find a new developer. Actually, it sounds like they have one, but aren't ready to name it. Which means it's not all locked in

Looks like a lot more surface parking next to DCSB than there was before

They're showing a land swap. DCPS gets more riverfront land (the extra surface parking) and the District gets the DCPS surface lot on the south side of Prudential Drive.

Nice! This keeps up I'm ready to make that move back to Jax and live out my final days on Planet Earth; I love what I see happening in downtown, Brooklyn, etc., and just wish they'd dammit do something with LaVilla (where I lived in the 60's). We'll see.

From what I have heard, they are attempting to buy out DCPS and let them stay there until they are ready to develop that site or sell to another developer.

DCPS needs to move off the river. It makes no sense for them to be on prime land like that.

That would be great news, for everyone involved.
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?

And additionally, the land swap looks like a pretty good deal. It gives more options for development south of Prudential, and hopefully it would make the DCPS property more attractive when it does sell.
