Apartments planned for the Adventure Landing site in Jacksonville Beach would include some affordable housing units.

The Jacksonville Beach City Council says a proposal to replace the Adventure Landing amusement and water park with a 415-unit apartment community can move forward.

The Jax Beach Council voted 7-0 on two bills Nov. 7 to approve Trevato Development Group’s application to rezone the property and amend the city’s comprehensive plan to demolish the theme park on Beach Boulevard for an apartment community with about 5,000 square feet of retail and office space.

The Council approved the rezoning and land use change after more than a year of deferrals, indecision by the Jacksonville Beach Planning Commission and concessions by Trevato, including more affordable housing.
