I noticed the former Gate Gas Station property on 3rd street has finally been leveled. Anyone know whats going there? It's a prime spot on 3rd street.

The beaches Town Center project looks great.  I'm interested in seeing (and eating at) the final result.

^Yeah, I hope the rest of the Beaches sees how beneficial and successful it is and more projects of that stripe appear in the future. Not holding my breath, though.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

I wish the fine folks at Famous Toastery the best. But man, that location does not have a good track record.

I wasn't aware of the new Whole Foods opening at Pablo Plaza. It will be nice to have another location other than off San Jose.

The Habitat for Humanity homes turned out really well. I love how they have transformed the look of that area.

ZOMBIE THREAD ALERT!!!

It may be time to create a new Beaches Construction Update.  The momentum out there is really picking up.  Notable projects include:

The Jax beach town center area is about to get much denser and more upscale.  Interesting to see where the current population of Florida Men and beach rats move to.
