Not many Cordish developments look like the Shipyards renderings with towers all over the place. None that I can think of in a metro of Jax's size.

There's also the example of how the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center went from this:

Should the Jags make a play for LeVeon Bell? Just as in his college career,  Fournette is always injured.

Bell on the other hand is reliable and undeniably the best RB in the NFL.

Just putting that out there.

Our backup RBs didn't suck today.

One of the most fun I've had at Jags game!

The O line is dramatically improved. There has never really been anything wrong with the back up RB's.  Our O line sucked up until last year.

Seriously, we whooped the Patriots with Fournette on the bench......

Not sure what the implications are, but apparently the city is rezoning the entire Shipyards/Met Park/Lot J area as "central business district."

Can we now boast the largest central business district in Florida (in land area)?

I don't understand that. The entire stadium district is already part of the central business district.

That area also recently become an Opportunity Zone, so now there's an avenue for the private sector to invest capital gains money and eventually cash out without being taxed on it.

Not technically, in terms of zoning.

Per the city's GIS site, it looks like the area is mostly PUD (Planned Unit Development), PBF (Public Buildings and Facilities), and ROS (Recreation/Open Space).



Again, not technically sure what the implications are, but I heard that the city wants to rezone 100 acres in that vicinity.

Edit - Doing some quick Googling on zoning definitions, it sounds like PUD would be more restrictive than CBD in terms of density and uses. Somebody might be able to correct me, but I think PUD is primarily residential with density caps and limited mixed use primarily intended to complement the residential, while CBD eases those restrictions and allows full mixed use.

PUD is essentially a "one-off", which is a negotiation. PUDs really aren't ideal, and should be the exception in a city with a solid zoning coe.

I remember that some of the buildings like 11E and the Carling had to be PUDs because our zoning code at the time couldn't handle Mixed Use (maybe it does now)

Isn't Miami's CBD extremely large as well? I used to live down there and Miami's downtown covers the old urban core, Brickell, the northside of downtown (don't know the name), and some of those islands I think in Biscayne Bay. I would bet that Jax's CBD is the largest I would believe. I believe something is up and going on with shipyards, met park and lot "J." Something real big for them to rezone those areas.

With Wembley falling through, the Jags seem to be angling Lot J as an urgent necessity.

Actually, here's the full clip of Mark Lamping's press conference yesterday, courtesy Dave Cawton at the Daily Record.

Really interesting, informal conversation where Lamping talks about Wembley, Lot J, whether the Jags want a new stadium, etc.

So,  can we ink in JEA to Lot J as a "sure thing" now?
