Rooms To Go Wants Former Toys R Us Space At The Markets At Town Center

Via Jacksonville Daily Record
The former Toys R Us and Baries R Us store at The Markets at Town Center is in review for conversion into a Rooms To Go.

Rooms To Go wants to move into the former Toys R Us space at The Markets at Town Center.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports the city is reviewing plans and a permit application for a $3.7 million renovation of 84,880 square feet of space at 4875 Town Center Parkway.

That size likely is smaller because the space has been marketed as 74,018 square feet. It was not immediately clear why the size on the permit application is larger than the marketed square footage.

That cost also could change as the project proceeds. 

The application describes the project as “renovation of retail space previously utilized as Toys R Us to be converted to Rooms to Go retail furniture sales.”

It says there also will be minor exterior facade upgrades with complete interior tenant improvement and a minor civil and landscape scope.

It’s not clear if Rooms To Go will buy or lease the space. Rooms To Go’s CEO could not be reached for comment by the afternoon of Sept. 16.

The Markets at Town Center is owned by Hines Global REIT.
