Increase in incentives was approved. Gives them more time to move dirt around for several years. Incredible.

Did the school board ever decide what to do about its offices?

No news yet on the school board's final position.

I need to get in the downtown Jax development business.  No experience or financing necessary, just be a great story teller!

Yep, come up with a great story, proposal, planned development, make it look extremely professional and top notch, and then "go on take the money and run" as the old song used to say; pocket those financial/monetary incentives and don't build a thing!!!

Don't forget your initial investment - bribes campaign contributions to members of the city council.

Is it just me, or are those remarkably ugly buildings?

I also note that in their view of the Northbank they show some sort of building on Lenny's Lawn. Appears to have a red or orange roof. Can't wait to see what that will be!!  ;)

Uh huh; yeah right. I'll only believe it when I see more dirt turning, cranes turning, and concrete and steel rising; otherwise, I am not amused.

Totally understand the skepticism, but I stand by my original prediction.

GUARANTEE we see vertical construction by 2018.

You are not alone.  I will match you and raise you one!  Can't we find one developer with some real flair and style in this City?  DIA/DDRB needs to insist on better architecture!  Take some risks!  Controversy sells!*

Great architecture creates character and conveys personality and identity for the City.  It attracts tourists and adds interest to a humdrum street.  How many people travel far and wide to see the the Flat Iron building, the Transamerica pyramid, Falling Waters, the Guggenheim, the Sydney Opera House, the Empire State or Chrysler buildings, the US Capitol, Cinderella's Castle.... ?

Time for Ennis to swoop in and show the way  8).
-------------------------------------------------------------------
*Why I would be fine with the LERP sculpture.  It would do wonders as a Downtown attraction pulling in people by the thousands to see what all the controversy is about.  And, it would be the one-of-a-kind attraction that instantly says "I am in Jacksonville, Florida" so come see me in person.
