If you look at the rendering, the shrubbery and stuff they plan on adding is very similar to the "Brooklyn" thing that Gate added. Obviously it worked for Gate to get away with crappy design. Not ideal.

Who's on the DDRB?  Any clues as to how this turns out?

If the city's governance process will abide this sort of affront to walkability and street activation, then please stop giving city money away to indirectly correct a problem the city created, and continues to feed.

IMO, they continue to kowtow to the talking points of 'but because development' or 'because jobs'...

Sometimes the better play is to just not do anything rather than approve 'something'. 

Because we've seen great plans, some even enacted, bite the dust or just get completely declawed because our city governance can't seem to see the forest for the trees.  Developers are going to ask for everything, but if the plan makes financial sense, they're still going to develop, no matter what fees or restrictions they have to build around - that additional cost will get passed down the end user or they'll wait a bit longer before turning a real profit.  But if they know that all they have to do is hire Steve Diebenow et al to make DIA cave, then they'll continue to do so.

Conceptual Approval passed 3-2 by DDRB. Shocker.

This was one of those that it didn't matter if 238364394735 people showed up. The people that voted for it would have approved it because they said nothing would get built there if this didn't happen. #eyeroll.

Jax has no intention of being a serious urban city.

Residence Inn by Marriott is on the rise in Brooklyn.

The city issued permits Wednesday for Pinkerton & Law Construction of Orlando Inc. to build the almost $10.2 million project at 357 Oak St.

This is so poorly designed.  That area is starting to get pretty dense, so at least the view of the terrible surface lot will be minimized.
