Check out the latest Jacksonville development and construction news in this week’s edition of Building Up Jax!
Greyhound station work to begin
A permit was issued this week for foundation work on the new Greyhound bus station at 1111 W. Forsyth St. in LaVilla.
The station has been long in the works; groundbreaking was originally planned in 2013. Now, it’ll be the first stage of the build-out for the future Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center.
It will replace the current Greyhound station at Bay and Pearl St., and is expected to take around a year to complete.
Shops of Philips
Dollar Tree plans to join Wendy’s in the Shops of Philips at the intersection of Philips Highway and Emerson St.
Additionally, Gate is expected to build one of its new car wash facilities to complement its neighboring station on Emerson.
- Plans for a four-story luxury apartment complex at 1444 Home St. in San Marco were submitted this past week to the Downtown Development Review Board.
- Gate will turn the building at 9100 Philips Highway into an employee training center, according to Jax Daily Record.
- ABC Fine Wine and Spirits will demolish and rebuild its store at 9436 San Jose Blvd., according to Jax Daily Record.
- Two Family Dollar locations – one at 8625 S. Old Kings Rd., and one at 3801 W. University Blvd. – will be converted to Dollar General stores at the end of the month, according to the Florida Times-Union.
