The Downtown Development Review Board will consider two Brooklyn projects at its next meeting Aug. 20.

WJCT News Partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports Landscape architect Joe Loretta is seeking conceptual approval for a mixed-use development called The Hub Brooklyn, which would be at southwest Riverside Avenue and Forest Street.

The application shows it could include two food vendor buildings, outdoor courtyard seating, and a design studio with two rooftops for special events. 

While it does not specify the food vendor tenants, plans show they could be a coffee shop and street taco shop. 

“The HUB is a quaint gathering place composed of open courtyards and covered patios,” a description of the project reads. “It’s a place to meet friends for coffee and artisanal fare, a refuge from the office grind, a spot to refresh after walking the Emerald Trail, perhaps cocktails and al fresco before the evening’s big event.”

The site is 0.21 acres. The building is projected to be two floors and about 11,000 square feet. Superior Construction Company Southeast LLC owns the property.
