JEA Selling Former Coggin Pontiac Site At Atlantic And Southside

Jacksonville Daily Record
Before being purchased by JEA, this site housed a Pontiac dealership owned by Coggin Automotive Group.

JEA wants to sell the high-profile northwest corner of Atlantic and Southside boulevards known to many as the former Coggin Pontiac auto dealership.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports the city utility issued an invitation to bid, seeking quotes for the property purchase at 9201 Atlantic Blvd.

The site carries an appraisal of $4,033,750, which is the minimum offer JEA said it will accept.

JEA says in the invitation that the site is about 5.98 acres, although it is shown as 5.4 acres in a utility presentation about its real estate strategy for surplus property sales.

The bid due date is noon June 18. JEA will open the responses at 2 p.m. that day.

Optional site visits are scheduled at 10 a.m. Thursday and Monday and additional visits can be requested.
