This rendering illustrates plans for College Park, which was formerly the Town & Country Shopping Center.

Developer Alex Sifakis says neighbors around College Park in Arlington told his group that they wanted more food options at the shopping center.So that’s what JWB Real Estate Capital intends to provide, including a supermarket, as it redevelops the 68-year-old retail plaza at northeast University Boulevard and Arlington Expressway.

“We’re bringing a grocery store back to the center,” Alex Sifakis, JWB president, told the JAX Chamber Arlington Council on July 28.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports a property leasing brochure says the store will open in the second quarter of 2022.

While Sifakis would not identify the company, it would lease space previously occupied by Winn-Dixie.

For food options, Sifakis also talked about the shipping container food court and entertainment complex that will be built on-site, next to new apartments.

He said those food tenants are to be determined. JWB also wants to bring restaurants to the inline center.

JWB is redeveloping the former Town & Country Shopping Center at 903 University Blvd. N. at an estimated $25 million.
