Documents Indicate DIA Wants Final Jacksonville Landing Park Design By August

Nov 25, 2020

Draft documents from the Downtown Investment Authority show the city plans to spend up to $300,000 to solicit designs for a minimum 4.5-acre riverfront “park/plaza” at the former Jacksonville Landing site.

Obtained by WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record through a Nov. 18 public records request, the draft outlines the process to select three teams to provide 50% of the public park design by April 1, 2021.

The RFP is part of the city’s plan to redevelop the former Jacksonville Landing property after the city razed the two-story riverfront shopping mall in May.

The DIA would set an Aug. 31, 2021 deadline for the top-scoring team to submit a final design that includes an estimated construction budget, according to the documents.
