Report: Roosevelt shopping center closer to redevelopment


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Roosevelt Square’s anticipated redevelopment appears closer, according to a report from the Financial News & Daily Record.

An engineer with the St. Johns River Water Management expects to issue a permit within a week for a 5-acre redevelopment site at the almost 29-acre Westside shopping center, the Record reports. The project would need city approval.

The Belk store that closed in January would be removed, according to plans for the site, and much of the site would remain undeveloped.

According to the Record, two new smaller buildings would be put up near the Chick-Fil-A at the southern end of the center near Wabash Avenue and one set of storefronts would be rebuilt.

The Roosevelet Square shopping center sits between San Juan and Wabash avenues on Roosevelt Boulevard and is anchored by a Publix grocery store and a Stein Mart department store.
