JEA halted its search for a master developer for 2,000 acres, including the St. Johns River Power Park and surrounding parcels, as the utility’s CEO plans to reengage JaxPort officials and other community leaders about redeveloping the property.
Jacksonville’s municipal electric and water utility issued a notice Jan. 21 formally rescinding a request for qualifications to solicit interest from companies internationally to determine the best use for the northern Duval County property.
JEA released the request Nov. 2. It includes 1,100 developable acres that housed a decommissioned coal-fired power plant, the St. Johns River Coal Terminal and other parcels.
The property is northwest of JaxPort’s Blount Island Marine Terminal and near the St. Johns River.
According to the request, the property has a berth on the Jacksonville harbor channel as well as 6.2 miles of private on-site rail track with access to CSX Corp. Class I and Class II railroads.
