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 June.
18. 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.
