They have about 4 months to hit the Summer 2019 goal.

Exactly - Summer runs until September 22nd.

Evidently there has been at least one resident moved in! Is that the sound of angels I hear singing?

I'd have to see it to believe it.

Website says they're open, moving people in, giving tours. One Google review is from a tenant who says they moved in recently.

The nay-sayers on this forum never cease to amaze me. The pessimism truly knows no bounds!

Where are those good old-fashioned values on which we used to rely?

I saw a person sitting on their balcony at Broadstone! And it looked like a "real person" like somebody in a Chevy ad.

Vibrancy, baby. Vibrancy.

Now, can anything happen with those horrible little buildings fronting the river? Nothing against IHOP....but please. Please!

I would imagine The Landmark hotel and surrounding properties are bound to be redeveloped later or sooner.   The trick is getting enough interesting in the area.    Maybe the redevelopment at the old JEA generating site, if that gets rolling, will create the impetus for a developer to take on something like that?   The properties a lil' goofy with the Skyway cutting through it and the River. 


As for the reviews on Google, be careful.  A lot of those are generated by click farms.    Just look at the accounts, just a review or 2 on them.   They used to crank them out on the same account.  Now they've had to spread them out over a butt ton of fake accounts.    And look at the wording.  They have a tendency to read like a marketing brochure, checking off all the boxes.   

The JMARTUS account is likely a product of one of these click farms.  Check out the reviews.   The pizza one had " It wasn’t heavy and it’s all because of the ingredients they use which are made fresh daily. We also enjoyed desserts and cappuccinos."   

Uh huh, ya, cuz when I review a resteraunt the first thing on my mind is to not comment that the food tasted like it was fresh ingredients but to point ou that it was made fresh daily.     There's a few folks out there that go into review mode and write crap in that framing.  BUt most of it is some 30 year old in Sri Lanka getting paid peanuts to crank them out, both fake good ones and fake ones to attack competitors.

I am not sure how my seeing a person on a balcony triggered the fake google review “revelation”, but you must be new to the internet! I think you will really like it. If you can get beyond the unhinged liberals, porn, and sarcasm, you will find some truly valuable content like posts about donuts.

If you're referring to the Lexington Hotel, I doubt it has much changed anytime soon. The new owners just dumped a ton of money into the thing. So unless they're willing to let it go or someone comes in with a offer that's a HUGE increase on what they paid, I think we're going to see what we see for a while.

I suppose someone could make them an offer on the parking lot and then build structured parking to make them whole, but I'm not seeing it anytime soon.
