Jaguars Owner Wants To Build Four Seasons Hotel At Metropolitan Park

Nov 12, 2020

Jacksonville Jaguars President Mark Lamping told the Downtown Investment Authority Strategic Implementation Committee on Nov. 12 that Jaguars owner Shad Khan plans to build and own a Four Seasons hotel at what is now Metropolitan Park in Downtown Jacksonville.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports Lamping made the proposal as the DIA considers a $12.5 million, 20-year Recapture Enhanced Value Grant and development rights for the $450 Lot J mixed-use project west of TIAA Bank Field.
