Sep 9, 2020

JWB Real Estate Capital filed plans with the city Sept. 8 for the renovation of College Park, the former Town & Country Shopping Center in Arlington.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports that plans show a shipping container outdoor food court and park, two apartment buildings, public open space, outparcels and an Ellianos coffee shop in front of the existing shopping center at northeast University Boulevard and the Arlington Expressway.

JWB Real Estate Companies LLC bought the 67-year-old center in August 2019 for $5.08 million.

The 17,733-square-foot shipping container food court is at the southwestern corner of the property.

The two apartment buildings are 14,344 square feet with 53 units and 14,496 square feet with 54 units. JWB President Alex Sifakis said Sept. 9 the buildings would have three floors. Units would be around 600 square feet.
