Development of Lot J is still in the early phases and would not impact parking on Jaguars game days for the 2018 season.

Here is the full statement from Lamping on the potential development of Lot J:

There is endless potential in downtown Jacksonville, and the Jaguars and Iguana Investments, along with the City of Jacksonville, are fully committed to exploring all opportunities that would create a vibrant sports and entertainment complex, 365 days a year. In addition to the Shipyards property along the waterfront, this includes the potential development of Lot J on the southwest corner of EverBank Field into a mixed-use entertainment complex. Iguana Investments is still in the very early phases of this process. Site surveys and environmental testing are just beginning, and design concepts are still in development. We do not anticipate any changes to parking on Jaguars game days this fall.
