City of Jacksonville reviewing civil engineering plans for Downtown Shipyards Project
Iguana Investments Florida LLC submitted civil engineering plans to the city of Jacksonville for the Shipyards Hotel & Residences and the office building it plans to construct near TIAA Bank Field. Iguana is the development affiliate of the Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan.
This news comes after PLC Construction was named the construction management group earlier this week. When PLC was announced as the construction management group, it was also revealed that the groundbreaking for the project was set for later this year.
In the plan, Iguana proposes a 174-room, 12-story hotel expected to be a Four Seasons with a parking garage below it along with a 25-unit, 12-story residential building, and a six-story office building.
The hotel and residences are planned on 5.1 acres and the office building is on the adjacent 2.97 acres. Both are addressed at 1406 Gator Bowl Boulevard.
The board is expected to vote on May 12 on the final designs for Khan’s $321 million project.
