Post Superbowl.

Recommended Posts

Hi, can anyone ( Lakelander probably can) break down what new business has been generated as a direct result of the city hosting the Superbowl or maybe not as a direct result but any post Superbowl commitements ??... I know there were many projects in the works prior to the big event but has there been much activity since?

Hi, nice to see you're still around. While I can't verify for sure, here's a couple of large-scale projects that the city, playing host to the Super Bowl, could have played a roll in.

1. Southside Generation Station

Case Pomeroy & Co. Inc. decision to spend $40.6 million to purchase the former Southside Generation Station (site of NFL Experience), for a 1,000+ unit mixed-use development. Prior to the game, nobody expected anyone to offer that much money for riverfront land in Jacksonville.

2. St. Johns Pointe

Riverpointe LLC's proposal to transform 22 acres of gritty industrial property across the street from Alltel Stadium, into a mixed use development, featuring (3) 30 story towers, 810 condo units, 107,000sf of retail and 107,000sf of offices.

3. Port of Jacksonville Expansion

Japan-based shipping company Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd. planned $200 million terminal at Dames Point. This terminal could bring 5,000 jobs to the area and double the port's capacity, eventually making Jacksonville one of the top 10 container ports in the country.

4. Hotels, hotels & more hotels

Jax got a lot of negative press for not having enough hotel rooms in town, during the super bowl. Since then, several hotels have been proposed or announced around town. These include a new Fairfield Inn, Comfort Suites, Hometown Suites and a 6-story Hilton Garden Inn, all at JTB & I-95 alone. Also the Adams Mark and Downtown Hilton hotels have been purchased by other hotel groups how are changing their names and giving the buildings facelifts.

5. Cleaner looking downtown

The game also forced the city to clean up and repave several streets in downtown. Other property owners also renovated previously decaying buildings, such as the Suddath Building and Holmes Block. In the long, run this will pay off by making the urban core more attractive for market rate private development.

I was under the impression they were only 30 storys each. Did they get a 5 story raise?
