On Friday, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Iguana Investments announced that PCL Construction had been named construction manager for the shipyard development project. As Jacksonville citizens know, that includes the Four Seasons Hotel Jacksonville, which is slated to open later this year along the St. Johns River.
The project, which was presented in June last year, is estimated at 321 million dollars.
“With today’s announcement of PCL joining our list of development partners, Jaguars and Iguana Investments mark an important milestone in the shipyards project,” said Drew Fick, senior vice president of Jaguars, real estate and development, in a press release. “With a full team now in place, we have gone completely from concept to execution. The partners we have brought together are world renowned and have extensive experience. Our north shore is in good hands.
PLC Construction has been involved in Four Seasons projects in the past around the world and in America. One of their projects includes the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto, that Shad Khan, owner of the Jags, bought in 2016. They have also worked on several projects in Florida, such as the JW Marriott Bonnett Creek Hotel in Orlando.
In addition to the Four Seasons hotel, the plan is to build an office tower and upgrade the nearby marina. According to several reports, phase 1 of the project could be completed as early as 2025.
