Latitude 30 May Come to Downtown, Giving the Old Haydon Burns Library a Serious Makeover

Latitude 30 Downtown Jacksonville
Latitude 30 Downtown Jacksonville

At present, it’s only at the Letter of Intent stage, but owners of the popular Latitude 30 entertainment complex has its eye on the old, vacant former Haydon Burns downtown library. Like to The Latitude 30 Philips Highway complex, the family fun center would have the building’s ample space using the first floor, 26,000 square feet, for the bowling lanes, restaurant, sports viewing center, movie theater and games area. It would be a pared down version of Latitude 30’s Philip’s Highway complex at the Avenues near the intersection of Philips Highway and Southside Boulevard. Latitude 30 is already in the process of scoping out locations in Indianapolis, Chicago and Pittsburgh.

Even with the smaller version, the first floor space, CEO Brent Brown has said, there’s ample room for 12 bowling lanes, a restaurant, a sports theater and games.

Since it’s a historic building, they made need special permission for that signature globe that is so visible atop the Philips Highway location, but we hope they go forward with their plans, as it would be a serious shot in the arm for downtown Jax.
