Council to consider three proposals for Maritime Park parcels

At its Thursday, July 15 meeting, the Pensacola City Council will consider three proposals submitted for parcels 4 and 5 at the Community Maritime Park:

Caldwell Associates
Team: Caldwell Associates and Dominion Partners

Components – submitted its response to Studer Properties’ ECUA site, across the street from Maritime Park.

Carson Lovell
Team: Carson Lovell Company, Provident Resources Group, Structured Parking Solutions, International Coliseum Company, The Michaels Organization, and Legendary Marine.

A municipal parking garage – which serves as parking for new developments and public parking.
A conference/convention facility – the conference/convention facility will provide the City and Citizens with flexible-use meeting, conference, banquet, and general-assembly space and become a catalyst for new opportunities for surrounding properties and the overall downtown district.
A multifamily affordable workforce housing complex – we are prepared to finalize evaluations and include a multifamily living complex to meet affordable and workforce housing needs, which are sorely needed downtown.
A retail – entertainment establishment – we have included a unique entertainment opportunity to serve the overall downtown, continue to grow the waterfront district, and extend our efforts to become a catalyst for new growth. This creative and intuitive retail and entertainment venue compliments the existing waterfront district and proposed new developments, while creating a new attraction for local citizens.
Marina development – we are including an option to complete the proposed breakwater and boat wet slips which are an instrumental part of the overall activation of the Waterfront District.

  1. Well increased housing is always in need that is obvious but it doesn’t appear that this location for housing would be a good choice.

  2. I believe all of your ideas are great ones it seems that I would extend it a little farther than it is currently recommended. If you were to create parking so that opening new businesses on this same area could handle the influx of people it would be a great advantage. On the other hand if you were to open our port to cruise ships he would find a substantial increase of business for those new businesses opening.

  3. No such thing as affordable housing in downtown Pensacola. Example :Aragon and Studer complex on the old pnj site. Rick , how many teachers, police, fire and other of these type employees live downtown?
