The TCEA ended up getting adopted into the mobility plan.  Without getting into too much detail, I'd assume a developer within it's boundaries would be privy to the same policies and potential exceptions as developers in other mobility zones.  Thus, there may be a loophole where one could specifically request that their mobility fee dollars go towards a specific infrastructure project.  Nevertheless, none of this really matters right now since there is a moratorium.

When this project was first proposed, Marks Gray was going to relocate their office to this site and I believe they were an equity partner in the development.  Have they dropped out??  Do they plan to relocate to anywhere else??

This is very good news.  We inject some life into an otherwise dead stretch of land between two of Jacksonville's busiest areas, it gives some ROI for the city's investment in unity plaza, it builds the residential stock in the core, and hopefully it will bring some good dining and retail to the area.  I'm very skeptical, but I'll hold off on that until later.

It's very good to see some movement here. Do we have a proposed timeframe?

And what's going on with Unity Plaza? Whatever it is, expect the amphitheater to get cut if it's that close to residents. Too many small minded Grinches concerned about the "noise, noise, noise, noise!"

When complete, 220 Riverside will include 280 units in a seven-story urban design configuration, with views of Unity Plaza and the St. Johns River.

Maybe I'm looking at the renders wrong, but looks like six stories to me.

This is a great project. The corridor is primed for development. I honestly would like to see something like an Aloft hotel somewhere in that area. IS there any retail component to this? I can't tell.

Besides the hotel and office building being gone, it looks like the trolley station is also gone.

yes....there were 3-4 companies that had committeed to office space...all have since dropped out

as for the ampitheater...it wasn't a whole lot different from the thing on the river at RAM....just some terraced steps and a small stage area....I think that will still be fine for jazz/acoustic shows that take place in early evening.

Why have a trolley station when the Riverside Trolley is on its last wheel?

if you look at the drawing, you will see there is ground floor retail space

I saw it, but wasn't sure if that was added just to spice it up a little.

I'm sure the design includes retail space....but as can be seen with the Carling, 11E, and Everbank PLaza, whether it gets leased or not is a different matter

Was the previous project vested in a development agreement for concurrency?

According to JEDC, Hallmark has an allocation of development rights agreement and a redevelopment agreement with the City of Jacksonville.  The Downtown DRI is not subject to concurrency nor the mobility plan.

Perfect location for a fancy Skyway extension station.
