Downtown's New Front Door

Located at the base of the Main Street Bridge in downtown Jacksonville, the Chamber of Commerce is transforming into a progressive, forward-looking urban landscape. Water features, contemporary use of native plant materials, video wall, sculpture court, and plaza of international flags will enliven the urban experience. The JAX Chamber redesign includes a city block of urban parks and a new multi-purpose sustainable parking area with bio-filtration systems for stormwater treatment. Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. was retained for the project following a design competition.
