Jacksonville Daily Record
Workers dig at the East San Marco site across Atlantic Boulevard from the headquarters of Pet Paradise.

San Marco merchants, customers, residents and visitors are noticing work at the East San Marco site, the high-profile property at Hendricks Avenue and Atlantic Boulevard that has been the target of development for almost 20 years.

“We’re doing some necessary stormwater work for the site as we make our preparations,” said Eric Davidson, senior manager of communication for property owner and developer Regency Centers Corp.

He told WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record, “We’re connecting our stormwater system for the site and will be doing some road work to facilitate.” 

“That’s the extent of it at the moment.”

Jacksonville-based Regency Centers and England-Thims & Miller Inc. submitted civil engineering plans to the city and St. Johns River Water Management District this month for the 3.25-acre project at southeast Hendricks Avenue and Atlantic Boulevard.

Davidson said May 18 Jacksonville-based Regency was “still moving forward with the city and our planning phase.”
