Additionally, the property will include the new development of shops, restaurants and offices totaling 115,000 square feet, as well as public green space.
Located at 3800 St. Johns Bluff Road S, the property is situated adjacent to the University of North Florida and St. Johns Town Center.

The construction timeline is predicted to take about five to seven years for completion.
