It's just, The District.  The motto is Life Well Lived.  The Jax is just to differentiate between this and theoretical future districts in other cities (that will likely already have developments named the District.

The District certainly has negative connotations to former UNF students who remember the apartment complex the district at Kernan which is kinda a dump haha. Good to see it moving forward though!

The District on Kernan has new owners and they are cleaning the place up.  I agree, the previous owners in an effort to fill the place up had set the bar a little too low for quality.

The recent shooting there was a wake up call to drain the swamp and clean it up.

You'd get that idea from the rendering. However most would not own a boat.  I know of a condo with marina in town that has maybe 20 slips and only one boat.

This project is still in the design phases.  I think I heard on the radio this morning a year until all the engineering and plans are complete.  If that's the case we will not see any dirt moving for a quite a while.  I could have heard that wrong though.

Odd because they are hoping to close April 27. Anyway, article also states site work would begin as soon as possible but buildings going vertical might be a year later.

They can't gate the whole thing, as there will be retail and office space.

I don't think any of it with the exception of maybe some parking areas are planned to be gated.

If they are just now doing the borings a year is about right for general project. Specific buildings will take longer while the concept is developed further.

Rummell bought out Balanky and is the sole owner of the District project, according to JBJ.  It sounds like the timeline is also pushed back (no surprise there)... http://www.bizjournals.com/jacksonville/news/2016/05/12/rummell-buys-out-partner-in-former-healthy-town.html
