Jacksonville University is on its way toward developing a Downtown campus within the SunTrust Tower.
The Arlington-based university will renovate 12,280 square feet on the 18th floor of the tower at 76 S. Laura St.

A permit application submitted Thursday shows four classrooms, offices, conference space, collaboration rooms, open cubicles, IT workspace and a kitchen.

Emerald C’s Development Inc. is the contractor for the $120,000 renovation. Hota Design Studio LLC is the architect.

Building plans show offices for JU health care and nursing directors and coordinators.

I hope JU moves some of their business grad programs their as they suggest. It seems to me that a business program would be better suited to the area than physical therapy.

UNF's been in the downtown core before these late comers even knew what was up. MOCA Jax ring a bell?

I'm told there are plans for future expansion but I don't know where we are on that.
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?

Keep an eye on the LaVilla area; I'll bet money on that. No proof, just a hunch.
