WOW, these developers really put a lot of thought into shaping this building to fit in with San Marco.  This should certainly be a huge plus for the area and would generate a lot of foot traffic at the square.

I'm very excited to see this project get started.  Adding more great character to San Marco! The parking garage - very much needed for the ever expanding and desired area. The developers and architects really looked at the needs of the local area.  Great Job!

I found this site about the East San Marco project where we can keep up with the progress.  It looks like they haven't really added much to the site, but I'm assuming they will.

Preparation for Construction Begins at East San Marco
Cleared land makes way for 32 condominiums and town homes

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (June 5, 2007) – The St. Joe Company oversaw the demolition of four vacant homes in San Marco in what was the first step of preparation for construction at East San Marco.

The cleared land will make way for East San Marco’s Parkside, consisting of 32 , including six town homes, adjacent to Fletcher Park. Parkside residents will enjoy spectacular views of Fletcher Park and the convenience of San Marco square.

“This is an exciting step for East San Marco,” said Mike Shalley, project manager of East San Marco. “People in the community have been anticipating this project for some time and we are thrilled to be this close to the start of construction.”

Upon completion, East San Marco will consist of a total of 147 condominiums and town homes as well as approximately 55,000 square feet of retail space. A variety of floor plans will be available ranging from one to four bedrooms and 900 to more than 3,000-square feet, each designed for luxurious comfort and style. Preconstruction pricing ranges from the low $300’s to more than $1 million.

Btw, it appears that Hendricks Avenue may be the next urban commercial strip to take off.  On a recent drive, I noticed at least four other sites between the railroad tracks and Atlantic with some type of business coming in.

Now that the road construction is finally done!  Hendricks will become the gateway between the Southbank condos and San Marco.  Perfect street for a trolly line as well.....

There's nothing to look at right now.  They just started clearing the site.  You can rest assured that next time I'm down there I'll be getting some pictures.

From looking at the aerial, Atlantic Blvd would be a great stop for a potential commuter rail stop.  From the railroad line to the heart of San Marco Square would be lined with pedestrian friendly retail and park space the entire seven blocks.  It would be similar to DC's Metro stop at Alexandria's King Street (except King is a little longer), with San Marco Square being the "waterfront".  Areas like this certainly kill the argument of what do I do when I get off the train?

the roads are great but the sidewalks still suck.  is every fancy lightpost on Hendricks being torn out for the 2nd or 3rd time... what?  it would be hard to walk around there the way things have been the last 2+ years.   

and what about accessibility?  Are the sidewalks too narrow for a wheelchair to even fit through?   to me, development without inclusion is a step backwards.

Great project!  The buildings will compliment the area well.

San Marco Skyway?
« Reply #14 on: September 16, 2007, 11:48:38 PM »
Is it time to kick JTA into gear on the Southern Skyway link?



"The BRT will have to be elevated ABOVE the current FEC Ry..." (JTA)
"The Trolley Bus (potato chip truck) didn't work out in San Marco due to delays at the FEC crossing..." (JTA)
"This is why we MUST build the BRT..." (JTA)

Hey! Excuse me! Isn't "elevated" what the Skyway already is? Would that be WHY it is called a Skyway? Why invest a Billion dollars to re-invent the wheel?

JTA? You begged God for that Skyway, you danced, pulled every political dirty trick and lied to the citizens to get it... Now you have it. You got what you asked for, so for Gods sake, DO SOMETHING WITH IT! Time to reach around and pull your heads out again...
