Former Town & Country Shopping Center Getting New Look, New Name

Look for a face-life followed by renovation at the former Town & Country Shopping Center.

Now called College Park, the center at northeast University Boulevard and Arlington Expressway will gain a mural that spells out Arlington, WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reported.

"The mural was an important first step to improving a highly visible beacon in the Arlington community," says a news release from JWB Real Estate Capital, part of JWB Companies.

Work starts this month and the murals are scheduled for completion in early March.

JWB Real Estate Companies commissioned eight Jacksonville artists for The Wall at College Park.

The eight-panel mural next to the expressway will span about 6,500 square feet for "Arlington."

Each panel will represent the artist’s style and viewpoint. The wall is on the side of the building leased by Legacy Ministries.
