EASILY the nicest greenspace in the downtown core

It is nothing but grass. 
I kinda think it's boring. It seems to be a typical DT site.

I'm not sure why they'd stick the majority of retail frontage on Julia instead of Adams? Adams has a significantly higher traffic count than Julia and is a historical ground floor retail oriented corridor.

I guess the frontage is larger along Julia, more shallow storefronts than fewer deep storefronts. I doubt JEA wants any retail in the building itself, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's how they had to go about it.

Depending on leasing rates, I wouldn't be surprised if a good part of that retail space stays empty. From a market perspective  it would be better to shift the garage retail to Adams, which would still keep it out of the building itself.
