In 2020, the emergence of COVID-19 slowed the growth of downtowns across the country and drained the amount of foot traffic in Downtown Jacksonville to an all time low. Will 2021 be the year of a comeback for downtown? Looking forward to 2021, here are five trends, projects or issues that have the potential to change the urban core as we know it.

Seems odd to do an article on changes downtown in 2021 without mentioned groundbreaking for The District.

Not really. Also didn't mention the opening of the Fuller Warren Bridge shared use path or additional development in Brooklyn either.

I came here to say this!! I'm surprised, but excited by the outcome!  Hopefully more money will be available to be spread throughout the core.

I don't see how there will money available for other City needs, since (if I remember correctly) the money going to Lot J was going to be borrowed. I don't see the City borrowing that amount of money, even for long-standing infrastructure needs. Can the City give itself a "breadbox loan"?

In a twist of fate, COJ will now be asking Khan for a bread box loan to address infrastructure issues!
