Downtown | planned for Project 323, a concert venue with a rooftop bar Jax Daily Record | Jacksonville Daily Record

The Downtown Development Review Board will review conceptual approval for Project 323, a planned concert venue and rooftop bar at 323 E. Bay St. on February 11th.

Miami-based 323 E Bay Street RE LLC group paid $ 1.4 million for the building on Jan. 22.

The group bought the property from Insetta Family Properties LLC, which previously attempted to sell the property for an entertainment venue.

Plans submitted by JAA Architecture Inc. show a proposed 2250 square foot rooftop bar, replacing entrance doors, storefronts and glass awnings.

The interior construction appears to show stage lighting and a lounge area on the second floor.

The 0.13 acre site is adjacent to a parking lot, the Live Bar Seafood and the Justice Pub.

The 323 E Bay Street RE LLC group consists of Eric Fuller, Aleksander Lukaj, and Albacore Jax LLC, which is run by Manjola Rajta of Jacksonville Beach.

Coastal Commercial Real Estate owner Bobby Knight said on Jan. 26 the buyers wanted to turn the property into a live music venue and add live bands “back to the entertainment district.”

A report from the board members supports the conceptual approval of the project.

The 0.13 acre site is adjacent to a parking lot, the Live Bar Seafood and the Justice Pub.
