Shipyards Re-Development Update: Major Plans and Major Concessions

JAX Jaguars Shad Khan has big plans for the 48-acre former Shipyards site that fronts the St. Johns River downtown, with 1MSF of office space, 100k SF of commercial space, 662 residential units, 350 hotel rooms and 525 marina slips, but it all comes at a cost:  a local TIF (tax increment funding) for the site, possibly state and federal funding for the project, city-paid construction of mooring space for the USS Adams, and the city to foot the bill for up to $35M in environmental cleanup of the site, and if it exceeds that amount, Khan can terminate the agreement.  The first public hearing on the project is at Tuesday’s Downtown Investment Authority’s meeting.  David Chapman of The JAX Daily Record has the latest here.

  1. Let’s hope they use Jacksonville based Architects. No need to go outside of Jax for this work.
