Roosevelt Square seeking permits for redevelopment

Roosevelt Square’s anticipated redevelopment appears closer.
St. Johns River Water Management District engineer Everett Frye expects to issue a permit within a week for a 5-acre redevelopment site at the almost 29-acre Westside shopping center. The project would need city approvals, as well.

Plans for the site at the southeast corner of the center include removal of the former Belk store and rebuilding one set of storefronts.

The storefront site would be redeveloped with a larger building that mirrors the set of shops just to its north, plans show.

After the Belk building removal, a large portion of its site would remain undeveloped, at least for the time being. Belk closed in January.

There also would be two new smaller buildings put up near the Chick-fil-A at the southern end of the center near Wabash Avenue.

Entryways at the southern end of the site also will be reworked.

Is this going to be the new Fuddruckers?

The closed Belk is being demolished to make space for the expansion of Roosevelt Square.

A lot of empty spaces in the property now. They want to add more empty spaces? In case you have not heard, malls are dying, even strip malls in places where Amazon can deliver most everything in the mall. So now we get 19 Metro Diners in the strip malls and no one can park in them? Sure makes Grubhub happy to deliver.
