They should start construction on the roads in RiversEdge very shortly and Toll Brothers plans to start construction on their townhouses soon afterwards. Two out-of-town developers are currently in negotiations to develop the mid-rise residential buildings.

I think they've already started construction on infrastructure (well along I think) and those roads/streets. There has been constant activity on the site for the last 4 months or so.

The activity work that you have been seeing is bulkhead work along the river.  I have a Facebook group page called Jacksonville construction projects where I post pictures of the progress if anyone is interested.

Thanks SC for the correction. I noticed they were working so assumed it was on those items; but its just the bulkheads on the River...cool, I guess next they'll start working on the streets, infrastructure, etc., or, I hope so (fingers crossed).

I assumed that they would have started the infrastructure work by now, but so far nothing.  The DCSB parking lot was finished like a month ago.  It may be because they are still doing bulkhead work adjacent to the new lot.

If anyone is interested I have a Facebook group called Jacksonville construction projects. Where I post Drone video of this project and others around town. When on Facebook click on menu then groups then type in Jacksonville construction projects.

Why is this taking an incredibly long amount of time? Are we getting fleeced?

This is the biggest problem imo. When one developer comes back, asking for more incentives due to rising costs, that opens up a domino effect. Why would the District not seek more incentives than the Trio for example.. it's a slippery slope.

If it ain't one thing it's another; costs just keep going up, and up.

Another cowboy developer angling for more time, more money eventually, absolutely stunning to see. Not.

I have a radical solution for these developers complaining about rising costs...build it now before costs rise! Need to break this cycle and create some accountability.

So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

Is anything vertical moving forward with this one? I took a few pictures of the site for the upcoming urban construction update. It basically looks like  the street grid is being put in. However, no visible movement with anything on the development pads.

Nope.  I do recall the schedule for site work was pretty long.  The only thing I've heard as far as building goes is that Toll Bros is putting in townhouses on the east side of the property.

Aretha will be complete at this rate before anything starts at Rivers Edge.  They started putting up the parking deck yesterday.
