The restriction imposed by the state subsidy is reminiscent of a federal subsidy that decades ago was associated with the conditions of construction of the metropolitan park. This federal grant ultimately kept met Park`s original 14.3 acres closed to development, despite the city`s attempts to get National Park Service approval for a land swap. If the state refused to exchange land, another option would be to reimburse the state for the subsidy. This would result in a much higher cost than the initial amount of the subsidy, as the state would charge interest. Boyer said the number the state recently provided for the repayment amount is $21 million. Most of the shipyards that could be used for a land swap cover about 12 acres between Hogans Creek and the half-built Berkman 2 Tower. Boyer said this location is closer to downtown than the Kids Kampus location and will help bridge a missing link between downtown and the sports complex. At the highland site, Boyer said part of the site near Hogans Creek could be suitable for a new restaurant. The city could also move the Fire Museum building to the former Site of Kids Kampus. The state`s Ministry of Environmental Protection will be among the agencies that will have to go through Jaguar owner Shad Khan`s plans for a Four Seasons hotel, as a grant received by the city in 1985 for the construction of a marina does not allow for such development on the land observed by khan. However, the city`s goal will be to convince the state to agree to a land swap by designating part of the shipyards as a park.
“We`re not talking about exchanging contaminated land,” Boyer said. “It would be completely fixed.” In the negotiation department, land acquisition agents negotiate the acquisition of full fees, maintenance easements, and other transactions below the fees. This section also helps acquire projects for the Florida Coastal Office, the DEP`s Recreation and Parks Division, as well as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Florida Forest Service, and non-conservation institutions such as state universities. Lori Boyer, CEO of the Downtown Investment Authority, said Monday that the city would pressure the state for a land swap that shifts restrictions on state subsidy to vacant properties at the shipyard site, which is closer to downtown. Once it has been determined that the State of Florida will be able to work with a landowner to acquire a property, the Real Estate Services Office of the DEP`s State Lands Division will be involved. This office is responsible for the acquisition of conservation assets under the Florida Forever program. The Real Property Services Office has two sections that ensure the process is complete – the Bargaining Section and the Closing Section. News: Jaguars unveil $441 million plan for Four Seasons Hotel and Football Complex development The grant at stake in Khan`s plans for a Four Seasons comes from the state`s Department of Environmental Protection`s Florida recreation development assistance program. However, the two grants are not identical. The grant for Met Park came from the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which was overseen by the National Park Service. Executives of Khan and Jaguars on Thursday unveiled an updated plan for the construction of a five-star hotel, office building and modernized riverside marina. By the way: Forbes ranks Jaguars owner Shad Khan fourth on the NFL`s richest list of owners “Our hope is that we have the opportunity to create a better park that connects downtown to the sports and entertainment district, and what we want is to provide more parking space,” she said.
The state subsidy is valid for a total of 10 hectares. Eight acres is the wing where Kids Kampus was located before it was dismantled years ago, and another 2 acres have the city`s parking spaces under the raised ramp of the Hart Bridge that was demolished. What we know: Jacksonville Jaguar`s plans for the shipyards, the Boyer Football Performance Center said that when using the site as a park, the general standard is to have a depth of 2 feet of clean ground. She said using it as a park requires less environmental remediation than building buildings that stir the underground ground when feet are installed for the structures. .
