Northeast Florida roundup

Jacksonville is waiting for its ship to come in

Will a new proposal emerge to develop the former shipyards property on Jacksonville's moribund riverfront?

Ron Word | 7/28/2014

The Jacksonville Jaguars call the former shipyards property in Jacksonville the “front door” to EverBank Field and envisions the city-owned site, which runs between downtown and the city’s sports complex, as an upscale housing, retail and entertainment area, even an NFL theme park. Mayor Alvin Brown also says he wants to see development that will bring people downtown. So far, however, those shared interests haven’t generated any concrete proposals to move dirt.

Also mentioned in this regional roundup, newsmakers and key players including Fred Pensotti, John K. Bakewell, Owen Roberts, Leah Jennings, Jason Gabriel, Cindy Laquidara, Wayne and Delores Weaver,  Leslie Dougher and Lenny Curry. Businesses and companies mentioned include Seventh Compass, Middleburg Hospital, St. John’s River Ferry, the Community Foundation of Northeast Florida, APR Energy, Casework of America, the historic Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine and a profile of Champion Brands.
