East San Marco will be anchored by a 39,000-square-foot Publix that will be built above a parking lot.

Groundbreaking at the East San Marco retail center could happen as soon as January, Regency Centers Corp. Vice President and Jacksonville Market Officer Patrick McKinley said Nov. 11. 

When a contractor is selected, McKinley said a groundbreaking would be set for that month followed by site work, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

He said Regency Centers should receive contractor bids this week. 

McKinley spoke at the San Marco Merchants Association quarterly meeting via Zoom.

“There’s a light at the end of the tunnel here,” McKinley said. “I know everyone has been hearing this for a long time.”

The 2.35-acre site is at southeast Hendricks Avenue and Atlantic Boulevard in San Marco.

McKinley said construction on the 39,000-square-foot Publix should be completed by summer 2022. Publix could open 30 to 60 days later after it outfits and prepares the space.
