I definitely agree with you that Khan makes things happen. The question is how much he wants this in particular.

And the fact that Four Seasons is an operator and not owner/developer hardly suggests that they are not selective with their properties.

But yeah, we will see! No reason it couldn't happen if Khan leads the way.

On the one hand, if St. Louis can have a Four Seasons, I think JAX could.

On the other hand, I don´t think anyone visiting JAX would pay FS rates, unless it´s corp biz....

FS is exceptionally selective with its destinations, mangement co. or otherwise. Harder to get a FS than an IKEA, believe it or not. (Better comparison: getting a FS is more like getting a Bloomingdales, which is a step up from Nordstrom, which took moving heaven and hell to get....)

I work with FS on a daily basis...just can´t see this happening. After all, the entire country of Spain is just now, in 2018, getting their first FS. Madrid. Barcelona, despite years of trying, can´t even get one, since it´s solely a leisure destination and not a corporate destination (which is also why Madrid got theirs - more corp. biz.)

Worth mentioning it took two decades for Orlando to get their FS, and Tampa hasn´t gotten one despite trying for 12 or more years.

Do NFL Franchise owners pay an annual tax on the value of the franchise?

I'm thinking NO even though it's basically a cash flowing business. And I assume they pay taxes on any surplus revenue they earn in any given year.

And is it fair that an owner of an apartment complex or business pays an annual tax on their assets but an NFL franchise owner would not?

From the renderings I saw (and will be shown today), there is a building located on the Met Park property that looks like a hotel/condo tower and it has a 4 Seasons type look.

I am really looking forward to the comments in this forum to what is shown today. Very grand plans from the Jaguars.

This.

To both of your points, active dialogue definitely doesn't mean that it's going to happen.

I just know that Khan is very optimistic about it, especially in the last few weeks.

Is it viable though?

I think we're quite a ways off.

Its not listed in the article. But I noticed something in the schedule for this week that was tweeted out by the Jags PR guy.

It said Thursday, as part of the State of the Franchise, there would be a "Momentous Live Music Announcement".

My bet is Lynyrd Skynyrd multiple dates at Dailys Place before either the home opener or Jags-Patriots matchup.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is correct.

Was hoping they would also announce the Eagles-Jags game would be moved up to prime time in England for a 1:00 start in the states but apparently it's locked in to 9:30 AM October 28. Missed opportunity there but at least it's an exclusive audience.
