I was just talking to my wife the other day about the redevelopment of the part of Hendricks between Nira and Prudential.  This will be huge for the area (if it's built right).  You also have the Naugle and neighboring buildings along Gary St and the Reddi Arts property that may be good candidates for redevelopment.  Plus that whole area behind Tidbits and whatever is going on with that.  This part of Hendricks really flys under the radar but has seen steady development over the last few years.

They going to demo the existing buildings and build new, or repurpose?

This is great news.  That's a really underutilized lot with a lot of space.

Interesting. I can't imagine they'd keep that building if they're going for mixed use commercial and residential. Either way, it could be a pretty great grab for the area.

This is a great sign. If we can see some of these actually get built on the Southbank, it will soon become red hot. There is a lot of room to do some amazing things if designed right.

The powers that be are finally realizing San Marco needs apartments?

Honestly, with the possible density on the Southbank proposed, the Skyway has potential to actually move people around to destinations.

I love seeing all this new development, is there any threat of over doing it?  I'm counting well over 1500 new apartments units in greater San Marco, and all within a pretty tight area. If these all come to fruition then the Publix development at Hendricks and Atlantic will be incredibly important.

Key info, from the JBJ article:

Quote
http://www.jaxdailyrecord.com/showstory.php?Story_id=548967

 Jacksonville-based Block One Ventures is pursuing plans to buy and clear the 3.45-acre site at 1230 Hendricks Ave. to develop a multistory structure with up to 345 residential units and 30,000 square feet of retail and commercial uses.

The first floor would feature restaurant, commercial retail, office and parking space as well as residential units with an amenity center, courtyard and pool.

Upper floors would contain parking and residences of studio to multibedroom units.

It would include structured parking and vehicle access at Hendricks Avenue and Naldo Avenue.

The project is described in a rezoning application filed with the city.

Florida Baptist Convention seeks to rezone the site to a planned unit development. It also requests a land use amendment.

The building would be seven stories.

Good stuff!  Hope it works out, this would be huge for that corridor.  It would be great to see that stretch book ended by this and the East San Marco development.

Sounds like good stuff. I can't wait to see what they do with the space.
