While much of Jacksonville's retail focus addresses what's new at St. Johns Town Center or what's lacking in downtown, the area around the Northside's River City Marketplace continues to see growth as well. Here is a visual update on the status of the latest shopping center north of the Trout River: Parkway Shops
Riding the wave of success from the development of River City Marketplace, Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust is moving forward with their latest retail project at the I-95/Airport Road interchange in North Jacksonville. Across the street from River City Marketplace, phase 1 of Ramco-Gershenson's Parkway Shops features 89,138 square feet of retail space for national retail and restaurant tenants.
Due to be completed this Spring, the majority of retail space within the center has already been leased. Dick's Sporting Goods will serve as the largest anchor. This 45,000 square foot space will be the chain's third location in Northeast Florida. Their first two area stores are located at St. Johns Town Center and Orange Park Mall. Furthermore, Marshall's is nearing completion of their latest Jacksonville location in an adjacent space. The 25,000 square foot store will be the chain's seventh in the region and second on the northside of the city. Ulta Beauty, plans to open in the first phase of Parkway Shops as well. Ulta already has Jacksonville stores at Markets at Town Center and Oakleaf Town Center. Also on its way, Jacksonville's second BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse is currently under construction on a 2.94 acre outparcel.
After this phase is complete, additional land is set aside for four outparcels and a phase two, featuring as much as 260,000 square feet of additional retail space.
