Oh, and as for Springfield those crazy new colors are all on the west side so far...just saying!

The Fish Market is on the east side of Main.

I'll hold my opinion on the colors until they are completed.

I stand corrected...I made the leap when Stephen mentioned colors on "the one next to Boomtown Loft" and I was thinking the old Boomtown and that he meant the Fish Market, but it seems he may have been referring to more than the two in question, ie Waffa's and the Fish Market. What color is the Fish Market anyway?  A fresh coat of paint always works wonders! What is Boomtown Loft?

Quite inspiring.  The Courthouse seems to be the main construction thing downtown now.  It is good to see those cranes creaking around and over construction of the Courthouse site.  Otherwise, seems kind of quiet around Jax, but same is happening around the nation.

I'll take crazy pink and fuchsia any day over boarded up windows and empty storefronts. Besides, I don't care what color they paint it, Wafaa and Mike's is awesome.

First Presbyterian Church, The Spirit of the City, has started it's parking lot beautification project. The parking lot is located between Adams & Monroe across from the old Morocco Temple bldg.

I think Wafaa and Mike's should have asked Content Design for some color suggestions.

Is the fish market only taking up the one bay at the north end of the building?

From what I can tell, its taking up at least the three bays to the south.

^ Hmm, I can't tell...I thought with the paper only over the 1st bay that construction was taking place there, and the other bays almost look like their being used as storage.

NM, I zoomed in on the picture and can see that all of the bays are covered, the south 3 in plastic...

Thanks for the help!

I guess a beautiful parking lot is better than an ugly one.  Thanks for the info.

New article in the TU today says that the JEDC is going to help fund the build-out at 20 East Adams. They are going to pay $$$ to the owner as the floors are completed, so as not to give it all away upfront, as they have in the past. I like this and its good for downtown. Here is the link:

Makes sence to do it a floor at a time.  Hopefully this will get the damn building finished already!

The reason the metrojax links show up before the website is because it's a placeholder site right now. Metatags describing the site haven't been coded, so google shows what it shows in whatever algorithm it uses.
