The Brooklyn area Downtown is in the midst of a boom.
More than $269 million in projects are underway or planned in the neighborhood along Riverside Avenue and the St. Johns River.
Projects include a Residence Inn hotel; Brooklyn Place, next to the Brooklyn Station shopping center; a parking garage for Florida Blue; and the Vista Brooklyn and Lofts at Brooklyn apartment communities.
The largest project is the most expensive, the $145 million world headquarters for Fidelity National Information Services Inc.
FIS announced in October it will build a $145 million, 12-story, 300,000-square-foot world headquarters at 323 Riverside Ave.
The site is a former Florida Blue surface parking lot.
FIS will receive $29.9 million in city and state incentives and hire an additional 500 workers by 2029.
