Interesting, and someone in Jax was trying to tell me that absolutely nothing was going on right now. I told him that it's the little things are happening (too bad the Morgan Stanleys of the world aren't looking at Jax even though they are investing in smaller markets and in smaller properties nowadays).  Does anyone know about the specific financing of this development?  Are there tenants signed on?  Is the financing secured?  I guess it's not necessarily approved and it looks extremely tentative, but is it financially feasible and market supportable?

I have heard that the city is providing significant matching grant funds for this project, which will get them started on the demolition and stabilization of the parking garage.  I'm hopeful but not yet thrilled by what I've seen so far - lots of work to be done here.

This would be great for that area. And with that new urban gas station slated for the area as well, it will definately give that part of DT a fresh look! Very good news!

i hope something nice does come to this corner. As the entrance and transition from DT to Springfield it needs to be a showcase!

I just added some recently released graphics to the article:

The new images look great.  My only complaint is that I wish on the first floor of the garage on the side fronting main that they would turn it into retail rather than leave that blank facade and parking. It's only 20 spaces, and it would add much more to the development. 

This is a vast improvement over the current state of those two blocks.  If the whole project gets built, it will be a huge boost for the area.

I'll get excited when they start digging some dirt, until then we know Jax!
