Quite a few projects on the DDRB agenda next week. Hotel Indigo, which includes a restaurant at Bay & Laura, the Trio Garage and retail space at Forsyth & Laura, a Dogtopia in the Southbank and another retail strip in Brooklyn next to Burrito Gallery are all up for conceptual review.

I wonder if Peterbrooke or any of the other ground floor tenants in the Life building will have to relocate, and if so, whether they will maintain a downtown presence.

I have all the renderings for all these projects. Just been in meetings in Tallahassee all day.

The first floor plan shows the hotel lobby entrance facing Bay Street near the Suntrust garage next door. A restaurant and bar take up the main corner and existing Peterbrooke space. A second retail space facing Laura is proposed at the SE corner of the building.

Hotel Indigo proposed for downtown Jacksonville



Nearing completion of the restoration of the former Lerner Shops building into a college dormitory at 20 West Adams, Profit Investments Partners is now preparing to bring a Hotel Indigo to the heart of Downtown Jacksonville at 100 West Bay Street.

Business is really picking up along that corridor.

The combination of Hotel Indigo, the Barnett, the Laura Street Trio, the FSCJ project, and even the garage with retail is going to inject so much additional life into the CBD.

Love all of these projects.

Down south in Fort Myers, where I grew up, they've totally transformed their downtown in the last decade.

Indigo was a big addition, and a really cool project. Historic rehab. Rooftop bar. Ground floor dining.





The rooftop bar is my favorite spot back home.

Here's the view, sorry for the filter, it was a Snap:

Rooftop is similar to the Bohemian in DT Savannah: Predominately outdoor seating, small inside bar, fire pit and game area. As with the Bohemian should attract other DT hotel guest for a drink or late night snack. Hope they do some good architectural type lighting on the outside façade of the hotel as was done at Hotel Indigo in Savannah.

This would be a really cool addition to downtown. I hope the project can move forward quickly.

What are the chances some alternative can take the place of that massively hideous parking garage at Main and Bay Streets?
