So glad the taxpayers are funding half the construction cost of a parking garage creating more dead space downtown based on AD's 'eminent move' downtown.

Yep, another brilliant move.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

i would be willing to bet one or more of the executives lives in Ponte Vedra, Nocatee area.

the CEO actually lives in Mandarin on the water.  No clue about the others though.

PSS was never coming downtown, even before they were acquired.

^oh, I know.  The irony is that PSS and Advanced Disposal were being touted as reasons for pushing that Parador garage down everyone's throats.

Sorry to get off topic, but I thought the sole reason for Parador parking garage was because of some contract agreement between COJ and Sleiman/Landing?  I agree, if it was for a corporation lets hold off on that for now.

There is no agreement between Sleiman and COJ regarding the Parador garage.  It does not fulfill the city's obligation to the Landing, according to Sleiman.

They cited parking costs as the deciding factor.

How much additional cost would parking be?

Depends on how many dedicated spaces they desired.  It's a downtown specific cost that can quickly add up if you employ a lot of people.  My old garage space at Forsyth and Hogan used to run my firm $90.95 each month.  With 120 employees (the number quoted with Advanced Disposal) without a deal, that's nearly $11k per month or $131k annually that has nothing to do with the reason you're in business in the first place.
