This is a driving video with Aerial Footage. We start at I-95 at the north end of the I-295 Beltway and travel into downtown Jacksonville for a tour, then continue on I-95 to the south end of the I-295 Beltway. At some point in the future we will do a full feature on Jacksonville and the surrounding areas. We titled this video “City in Waiting”. After demolishing Jacksonville Landing, Jacksonville is alittle quiet. They have had a couple of developments fall through. After doing Tampa who is well into developing their waterfront areas, you feel alittle bit for the city of Jacksonville, there is certainly alittle bit of disappointment. I do believe however, good things are in the future for this growing southeastern city. Jaguars owner Shadid Khan, I believe will provide that spark to re-energize downtown. They are expected to begin construction in 2021 of a development along the waterfront that will connect the urban core to the sports and entertainment complex. I was alittle shocked that all they have planned for the site of the former Jacksonville landing is a urban park. However the downtown area has too much potential with the St Johns River and I believe although maybe 5 or more years behind Tampa, it will soon become a popular tourist destination.
