Extremely excited for this project.  I certainly had my doubts with Atkins over the years but bravo to him if he pulls if off which it certainly appears he will at this point.

Seeing the Barnett & Trio project kicking off construction gets my vote for Downtown Jacksonville's greatest success story since BJP.

3 major residences, a dorm and a hotel will be surrounding a single block downtown soon... This is huge. If we could get a 10-15 story apartment/condo with a Walgreens/CVS on the bottom floor in the burrito gallery parking lot, this area will be HOT!

I believe they were all installed wrong or not the correct windows for that space. Whatever, the issue was is why they were left open all those years.
