The former post office in Jacksonville Beach on the corner of 3rd street and 7th Avenue North, will soon become a facility that will provide several services to people who live at the beach called 7North. Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry (BEAM) will relocate its thrift store from its current location on Shetter Avenue in Jacksonville Beach to 7North. As a retail store, BEAM Thrift offers clothing and household items at a very low cost to shoppers and provides goods at no cost to those who come to BEAM through partner referrals.
16. 201 Mayport
Beaches Habitat for Humanity is in the process of developing 201 Mayport at the Atlantic Boulevard/Mayport Road interchange. This project preserves property that will provide nearly 80 fee-simple homes to qualified families in what is becoming a highly competitive and restrictive beaches real estate market. The development will include attached duplex, triplex and quadruplex homes that will be conveyed fee-simple to each homeowner.
