The city approved a permit Feb. 16 for Hygema House Movers Inc. to build a foundation for the Jacksonville Fire Museum at 620 E. Bay St. at a cost of $370,000.
Contractor Hygema House Movers Inc. also will move the two-story, 4,800-square-foot museum from 1406 Gator Bowl Blvd. to the new 1.1-acre site at a cost of $1.23 million. That permit is in review.
The museum is moving a short distance from the Kids Campus to Shipyards West, both along the Downtown Northbank along the St. Johns River.
The city plans for Shipyards West to become a park and museum destination.
It would allow Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan to break ground on his proposed $321 million Four Seasons hotel-anchored development that the city agreed could be developed on the 8-acre Kids Kampus site.
