Perfect location for a fancy Skyway extension station.

A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

I hope this place isn't another cookie cutter, 1661 style building. Very exciting development, though!

any word on any of the retail merchants interested in the ground level?  also, looks like they have the potential to do a phase 2 next door and perhaps one day win a hotel?  glad to see they're rentals, they'll have pretty nice views!

So these would be rental residences? IF this happens to get built, I'd really consider moving from my place Downtown. I just hope they don't price it at a ridiculously crazy price point. i.e. The Strand.

The Downtown DRI is not subject to concurrency nor the mobility plan.

I knew that was the case for concurrency, but didn't realize it applied under the new mobility plan.  Another casualty of the moratorium: taking away the incentives to develop downtown instead of the 'burbs due to lower cost of development fees.

actually I think 1661 is quite nice....they went through a lot trying to match the nearby architecture, provide ground floor retail, structured parking, etc.

I don't think this is meant to be a "cheap" building....I'd bet that these will rent for $1-$1.50 per square foot....which means that a 1 bdr might rent for as little as $750 and a 2bdr for as much as $1200...I'm sure the view will play a role in that.

what's a crazy price point for you?

Unless there was a last minute modification by council, downtown is included in the mobility plan. However, the projects were those already on the JEDC's list (ie. streetscapes). Since there's a moratorium, no new money should flow into it either.

That is in effect until 1-01-2018.

Yes! The dead has a-risen. And the rental market is VERY hot right now. That is one reason Im in the process of buying a house. My rent has been going up between 40-60 every year and the rent office even told me its because the rental market has picked up, because of the housing crisis.

This plan is much better than the 4 story plan. This is pretty close to the places that I keep referring to up north. It's a little different, a little more spread out. But I still like the plan alot. I really hope it gets built though, looks to urban and pedestrian friendly for JAX to take to it. Keep your fingers crossed for this one.

Yeah I do hope this happens.  What is the parcel across Magnolia Street?  It looks to be part of the design.

I'm sure glad that THIS:

Then turned into THIS:


Then turned into THIS, much better use of the property density given the water feature asset, and most should get river views instead of being a parking lot:

Anyone know who the design architects are?

That's a solid evolution of the design, though all of them are better than we often see in these parts. I really hope this comes together.
