A project to redevelop the former National Guard Armory into a hub for local artists is moving forward nearly a year after the project was announced.

On Sept. 8, the Mayor’s Budget Review Committee will address a request to authorize the execution of a Lease and Economic Development Agreement between the city and Ft. Lauderdale-based REVA Development Corp. for the Armory at 851 North Market St. and the adjoining 928 North Liberty St. parcel.

Don D. Patterson, president of REVA, declined to comment on the specifics of the MBRC meeting, but he told the Business Journal things were still on track for the plan laid out in September 2019.

“The goal is to create and renovate the existing building for the benefit of bringing together Jacksonville’s rapidly developing art community. We really see this as a hub for the creators,” Patterson said Friday. “We intend to partner with the local organizations that are already doing phenomenal work and really just work hard to be a vehicle for helping foster real arts and culture in the city of Jacksonville.”

Good to see this still moving forward. If successful, this will be huge for the Eastside, Springfield and the Cathedral District.

Has anybody checked the warehouse parcel for contamination? Isn't that a major problem for this general vicinity?
