Last week, I had the pleasure of receiving a hard hat tour of Unity Plaza. Jen Jones, executive director, took me and a few other lucky Jacksonville residents on a behind-the-scenes adventure. The vision and direction for Unity Plaza is amazing. The focus is on public-private partnerships, holistic and healthy living, arts and culture, along with a real understanding of our community and desire to promote nonprofits as well as business growth.
Meredith, “A view of the large water feature as it is now (changes to come!).”
Unity Plaza Inc. is a nonprofit responsible for bringing together the needed elements to make this project a success and the upkeep of the grounds, among other important duties. There are also residential condos being built, as well as some very special retail space featuring restaurants and multi-purpose classroom/retreat space.
Meredith states, “Future site of the amphitheater.”
At first glance, the plans for Unity Plaza seem daunting, but if anyone can make it happen, it’s Jen and the team behind the collaboration.
