On Thursday, Jacksonville’s Downtown Development Review Board will consider plans to convert two historic buildings into mixed-use developments, part of a plan to bring density and vibrancy to the Hogan Street corridor.

As Ennis Davis tells WJCT News Director Jessica Palombo in The Jaxson on WJCT, the plans are just a small part of a huge transformation of the area next to City Hall, which is expected to further be powered by the next phase of the Emerald Necklace trail project next year. 

See renderings of and read more about the two proposed projects that are up for review on Thursday: the Baptist Convention Building and the former Federal Reserve Bank.
