The former Jacksonville Jewish Center could be the next property to join revitalization efforts in Springfield. 

Developer Springfield Lofts LLC wants to secure $3 million in taxpayer-backed incentives to convert the space into a $14.8 million mixed-use residential and commercial office project.

The project includes 78 market-rate residential units and 8,000 square feet of commercial office space, according to a Jan. 23 memorandum from the City’s Office of Economic Development.

Yes, but I don't believe they were asking for incentives back then.

I've seen the updated plans, it's a bit different.
