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.
Lot J is planned by Khan development company Gecko Investments LLC and Baltimore-based The Cordish Companies. That project is seeking $233 million in public investment.
A project map in Lamping’s presentation shows the Four Seasons south of Lot J on what is now Metropolitan Park.
