Eastside Brotherhood

Jessica Palombo

The owner of the Jacksonville Armada wants to build a soccer stadium on the city’s Eastside, just north of the existing venues for baseball, football and hockey. 

Surrounding the city land where the soccer stadium is being proposed is a historically black community that has struggled with economic development, and residents there are looking at their potential new neighbor with a mix of skepticism and hope.
