200 Riverside Renderings



If Hallmark Partners have their way, an urban prairie in Brooklyn will become the site of a massive office/commercial/hotel complex called 200 Riverside.  Here is a glimpse at what this development may look like, if built.

Very nice, let's get it done!

This area needs more projects like this, in order to compete with the Southside area.

And.......this entryway or gateway to downtown will provide a catalyst for more growth and development in that small surrounding downtown area in Riverside/Brooklyn, and to the western portion of downtown going into Lavilla/Brooklyn.  Great renderings and I love the look, appeal, and overall appearance of the building itself and the development as a whole.  And...it complements the nearby Everbank Building and Blue Cross/Blue Shield.  Is it finished yet?

They have been delaying this project for the last year or two.  I thought this particular building was supposed to break ground by the end of the year.  They still have the coming soon sign up.

A-gree!

If the Convention Center were to get reverted back to Union Terminal with all the commuter rail coming through (crosses fingers), would that then make this a TAD?

If the skyway is extended into this area, then it could be considered a TAD.  However, I don't think this development would qualify as either (TAD or TOD) because it's feasibility isn't dependent in any fashion on transit.

If this don't light a fire under the City to get that SKYWAY headed South, then they're wood is wet. Just a funny aside, with the current heavy freight transfers through the terminal, I can't wait until everyone in this place is soundly tucked into bed... Just then a CSX or NS engineer, stopped on signal, gets a green light. Being the hot-shot that he is, he yanks the throttle and the slack runs down 100 cars. CRASH-BANG-BOOM-CLATTER-CRASH-BOOM-BANG! It won't hurt the train but it's going to sound like a frickin earthquake ...and yes, if I was the Hogger on that train, I'd do it just for the SOB effect... hee hee.

This is the same site as the Marks Gray Law Firm proposal.  Was that office space incorporated into this project, or is that dead?

It hasn't lite a fire under city hall, they're trying to get the courthouse out of the ground.  The Skyway is JTA's baby.  But I can't imagine them expanding anything in that area before construction on these long delayed projects takes place.

Same project.  The Marks Gray offices have been incorporated into a larger scheme.

Hope this happens but I'm skeptical considering the present business environment

This and Brooklyn Park are absolutely massive in their benefit to Brooklyn and DT Jax as a whole.

Looks great! This will be a great infill project that will further connect the downtown core with Riverside/Brooklyn.

Wasn't this originally supposed to have condos or apartments? Either way, it appears those have been sacked, and rightfully so.
