Major construction projects have returned to the landscape of Jacksonville's urban core. Find out where (and more) as we take a brief look at the status of various developments under construction in and around Downtown Jacksonville during the month of April.


19. Bold City Brewery Expansion

Riverside's popular Bold City Brewery is in the process of doubling the size of the their operation. When complete, the five year old brewery will contain 30,000 square feet.

Fortunately, we’re able to stay in the area we love by expanding into an additional 14,000 square feet directly behind our existing building. All of the brewing, cellaring and packaging operations will be moving into the new building which will give us a total of 30,000 square feet, which is a lot of room for additional tanks and packaging equipment to be setup. I’ll pass along more information and updates in the coming weeks.

20. 1034 Park Street

The former Caribbean Connections space at 1034 Park Street is in the process of being converted into a food and beverage establishment.

21. BREW Five Points - Beer & Coffee

BREW Five Points will be opening soon in the former Tasti-D-Lite space at 1024 Park Street in Five Points.

BREW is a new (but simple) concept bar collaboration between veterans of the local bar and coffee biz. We'll feature an impressive selection of American canned craft beers with limited hand-selected offerings of seasonal / special release bottles and drafts. In addition to proudly pouring Bold Bean espresso, we'll feature rotating selections of our favorite roasters from around the country.

Our mission is to create a new bar experience in Five Points that fosters community and encourages social interaction while celebrating the American craftsman and the anti-commoditization of the things we enjoy. Beyond our carefully curated beers and espressos, our focus will be on atmosphere, experience and community. Five Points is home to several fantastic bars but BREW will be unlike anything the neighborhood has seen before and is currently missing - a modern yet unpretentious gathering place with an inspired aesthetic that encourages community and provides the perfect setting to taste and experience new things. Keep reading to learn about membership opportunities in the BREW social club.
