Challenges For Urban Pioneers In Jacksonville

New residents of Downtown Jacksonville townhomes face urban realities of noise and vagrants.

"Some of the issues facing the 12 new residents of the Parks at the Cathedral are the result of the blending of a new development, bordered by Church, Market, Ashley and Liberty streets, and an old neighborhood. Jones and Wu are pioneers of sorts in the sparsely populated downtown. City officials have attempted to change the area by offering financial incentives to developers of residential complexes, including the Parks at the Cathedral."
