We’re so excited to share our latest report on the State of Downtown Jacksonville with you! ⁣⁣
Curious about development, housing, transportation and more? Check it out now ➡️ (link in bio!)⁣⁣
Using more than a dozen sources, Downtown Vision tracks and analyzes key Downtown indicators for the report including: development and investment, residential demand, office market and employment base, transportation expansions and tourism health. ⁣⁣
Report data was largely gathered prior to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the severe impact on many businesses, major construction continues and the stimulus support is helping. The public and private sector are pulling together to keep Downtown growing. And as we recover, the more successful our Downtown is, the more competitive we are as a city, the more talent and jobs we recruit, the more our city thrives, and our tax base grows to fund even more improvements all our residents deserve.

As of last night, @hemmingpark is now officially renamed James Weldon Johnson Park. 💚 ⁣

Who was James Weldon Johnson? Johnson was a LaVilla native whose accomplishments know no bounds. Johnson co-wrote the iconic song, "Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing," which is now known as the Black National Anthem. He was Florida’s first African American lawyer after Reconstruction, the principal of Stanton, which he converted into Florida’s first black public high school, a U.S. Consul to Venezuela and Nicaragua, the first African American head of the NAACP, and a respected university professor.⁣⁣

We are SO proud that this inspiring man came from our city and think this beautiful park is a wonderful tribute to him. When the time comes to bring #ArtWalkJax back to Downtown, it will be a joy to have our headquarters be James Weldon Johnson Park. 🎨
