St Johns Town Center has been extensively covered by the local media since its grand opening. Today, Metro Jacksonville explores the region's premier shopping complex and its major expansion.
Phase II will be an expansion of the lifestyle/Main Street-style shopping corridor, shown in this image.
Phase II Statistics:
Developers: Simon Property Group and Ben Carter Properties
Architect: Dorsky Hodgson Parrish Yue (Cleveland)
Contractor: Hardin Construction Co, LLC.
Leasable retail space: 228,000 square feet
Estimated number of shops: 40 upscale retailers and four restaurants, most of which will be new to the Jacksonville market.
Estimated total construction costs: $20 million.
The development will extend River City Drive (past Dillard's, Swoozie's, and Artsy Abode) south toward Butler Boulevard by about 40 boutiques and galleries. The end of the street will be capped by a park and four "white-linen" restaurants with "higher price points than what we already have now," Carter said.
