Plans For New Riverside/Murray Hill Brewery, Tap Room Suffer Setback

Jacksonville Daily Record
Post Modern Brewing LLC wants to redevelop this old Pure Oil Co. gas station.

The city Planning and Development Department recommends denial of a rezoning request by Post Modern Brewing LLC to open a craft beer brewery and taproom at 2951 Post St. west of Willow Branch Avenue, where Riverside meets Murray Hill.

The staff report says the proposal is too intense for the residential area, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

The property requires rezoning to allow the craft brewery, the outdoor sale and service of alcoholic beverages and for deviations from the zoning code on the 0.19-acre parcel.

The rezoning would change from commercial community/general-2 to planned unit development to allow the brewery, exempt the minimum distance requirement from schools and churches for sale and service of beer and wine and relax setbacks and parking requirements.

The property is adjacent to commercial community/general-2 zoning to the north, west and south, residential medium density-D to the east and a PUD northeast for 19 single-family courtyard homes under construction on the south side of College Street between Willow Branch Avenue and Rubel Street in Riverside.
