Nocatee is supposed to be a city whenever it's built out.  It will have office parks, shopping centers, and a downtown core.  This was the first office space developed a few years back.  I guess was vacant and available.

You probably know by now. The decision's been made. They are moving to St. John's County.

I didnt care one way or another really. It seems to be they just did it out of spite, but at the end of the day, no matter where they are located, if they owe the city money, theyll have to pay up.

They cited parking costs as the deciding factor.

How much additional cost would parking be?
2-4 bucks PSF depending on.....

Appleby: Mayor ‘told me I was wrong’

Quote
Advanced Disposal Chairman and CEO Charlie Appleby says if incentives had been approved more quickly in Jacksonville, he might be renovating space Downtown for corporate headquarters rather than relocating to St. Johns County.
"Had they been able to move as quickly as St. Johns County, the announcement would have been made and we would have announced for Downtown," Appleby said during an interview Monday afternoon.

Had Advanced Disposal moved Downtown, it probably would have been to the SunTrust Tower. "That would have been the likely place we would have gone," he said.

Signage on the building would have been part of the negotiations. "That was under discussion but not finalized," he said.

Appleby said the time it took Jacksonville City Council to approve incentives allowed Advanced Disposal time to review other options.

How did the financial incentives SJC gave them compare to what COJ was going to offer?

apparently they were just quicker.

and no one was being an ass on their city council. ;)

True.  Hopefully though, COJ remembers this next time AD's contract renewal comes up.  But you're right, Crescimbini is a tool regardless.

Appleby  is a friend of the Mayor's. His statements are designed to emphasize out our obvious problem with incentives approval without making it sound like anyone in particular dropped the ball. I still think they were going to Nocatee regardless of how long it took in Duval.

It's surprising Nocatee appealed.  The rental rates down there must be a giveaway...there is no other reason to be down there.

All of their employees live around the 210 corridor?  That's too hard to imagine.
