Downtown Jacksonville Aquarium Renderings
Its been talked about for years now and finally, plans have been released on what an Aquarium could look like that would be situated in downtown Jacksonville. The aquarium would find its home in downtown Jacksonville in the vacant Shipyards property and could potentially be the lost key to kick starting the revival of downtown. The property has had many different proposed plans over the past year from a massive tower and ferris wheel to a central park but this may be one of the coolest and most promising concepts yet.
Still lacking the necessary funding, there may be potential investors on the horizon. An advocacy group called Aqua Jax, has stepped up to the plate to raise awareness and assist in the advancement of projects for the city of Jacksonville that will provide greater prosperity, growth, and revenues to benefit all citizens.
