The city issued a permit Monday for chef Dennis Chan to renovate and expand a former law office he bought in Mandarin for Blue Bamboo II, his second area restaurant.
Blue Bamboo chef and owner Dennis Chan said previously he hoped to open Blue Bamboo II next summer, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.
The Angelo Group Inc. is the contractor for the $2.19 million project to convert and expand the building at 10110 San Jose Blvd. into a 7,401-square-foot restaurant for Chan.
Chan, through Blue Bamboo Land LLC, paid $899,000 for the property in November.
Chan bought the property from William H. Jeter Jr., John S. Duss IV, Theresa M. Kenney and Michael Taylor Bowlus, the deed shows.
The 4,300-square-foot building was built in 1978 on 1.05 acres at northwest San Jose Boulevard and Haley Road.
