Sorry, I hijacked the thread.

Just drove past it, not a big building. Would want more sq feet for my pool hall....

Looks great. I'm hoping that "coffee shop" is just a placeholder idea, though. The core needs diversity in food & drink options almost as much as it needs residential space.

I agree; how many dog gone coffee shops can you have? That's gonna play out real quick if there's too many.

You'll be amazed. In Philly, it feels like there's a Dunkin Donuts on every other block. In Seattle, it feels like there's a Starbucks on every other block. In Asheville, it feels like there's a craft brewery on every other block. Ultimately, the market will decide what's our saturation point.

Lake is there a photographic record of Genovar's Hall from back in the day? Something that could be drawn upon when the restoration begins?

Here's a pic from the early 1990s.



Saw a similiar building in Pilsen (Chicago) earlier this week:

In all due respect, in Jacksonville there will be a parking garage on every other block, with a coffee shop on the ground floor, and a coffee shop on the ground floor of just about all other businesses. In my opinion, Jacksonville is not really a "coffee shop" city like seattle or philly. We should strive to utilize our own identity, our southern identity and roots, i.e., maybe a few small diners that not only serve coffee, but breakfast...I think that's the southern, north florida way. (just shooting off here...never mind me please).

Damn, it's almost identical. I wonder if it was the same architect and maybe we got that design (someone did maybe) from Chicago. WOW.
