The Jaxson: JEA Move Should Help Make Adams Street More Vibrant

JEA is preparing to move its headquarters just a few blocks to the southwest in downtown Jacksonville.

But as The Jaxson’s Mike Field tells WJCT News Director Jessica Palombo in this week's segment, the slight move could have a big impact on walkability in the area.

Field says Adams Street is one few downtown corridors with a long stretch of street-level retail and restaurant space. With JEA's planned move toward the Duval County Courthouse, that stretch will soon be anchored on one end by a building with hundreds of employees and at the other end by existing apartment buildings. Suddenly, Adams could become more vibrant during the day and at night.
