The Economic Impact of Downtown Revitalization Projects: It's More than Jobs
  
Downtown Jacksonville is undergoing a resurgence as the urban hub of government, culture and entertainment for the North Florida region with the announcement of a number of major developments that will have regional impacts---Lot J, The Shipyards and The District.  As proposed, the $2.5 billion Lot J development will consist of 4.25 million square feet of retail, dining and entertainment venues, hotel, office space, and luxury residential units in the City’s Sports and Entertainment District.  In a recent Florida Times Union article covering the Lot J development, Mayor Curry hailed Lot J’s development as being “visionary and aspirational” and that “the most important piece of it is it’s going to be creating jobs, which will be good for Jacksonville.”  
 
The District is proposed as a $600 million mixed-use development on Jacksonville’s Southbank.    The development comprises office and retail space, residential units, a hotel, marina and riverfront park, restaurants and bars.
