Daily Record is reporting that Tamaya will have a large apartment complex build out at Beach and Kernan.

   http://jaxdailyrecord.com/showstory.php?Story_id=547271 

With the announcement yesterday that they are completing the 6 lane project on Kernan north of Atlantic to Wonderwood and KB Homes announcing a new buildout on the Sleiman property, this corridor is seeing a lot of action.

Also, in a reversal of what Tamaya developers begged COJ to get out of,  they are building a second access road for the development the exits at Kernan.

It would have been better to have this road connect 500 yards north at Alden on the west end and with Patton Park Road on the east end, but the exit will be opposite of North Beach Apartments.  Hopefully this will not trigger a lot of accidents.

With the large commercial buildouts by Sleiman at Kernan and Atlantic and the Beach and Hodges crossroads, this leaves the Beach and Kernan' 2 vacant lots for either apartments or for business parks.

The manager of the Publix at Beach and Kernan says they arent moving because of their proximity to the apartments supporting UNF and being next door to Jax Country Club.

Well, that is good news, from our point of view.  There are not a lot of high-end complexes near the Beaches (where we would prefer to be), so we see ourselves somewhere in that general vicinity of Kernan and Atlantic or Beach.  One more quality development to pick from and raise the bar for the others.

Thanks for the update, spuwho!
