It was a slow week for development news in Jacksonville, likely due to the anticipation of Tropical Storm Hermine. Nonetheless, we’ve got a few projects noted for you in this week’s edition Building Up Jax.
A new shopping center will be constructed along Southside Blvd. across from the Tinseltown area.
AT&T and breakfast restaurant chain First Watch will occupy the center, to be called Village Commons. The project’s rendering indicates a few other available spots, so presumably more tenants will be announced in the near future.
A shopping center had been planned here for quite a while, but now the project is finally being realized. It’s expected to be completed sometime next year.
