Nordstrom interior work to cost $25M
Jacksonville's first Nordstrom department store appears to be a $31 construction investment - $6 million for the shell and $25 million for the interior build-out.
Inventory and furnishings for the St. Johns Town Center store will boost that amount.
IBEX Construction Florida LLC, which is building the $6 million shell, has applied for a permit for the $25 million interior renovation for the two-story, 130,000-square-foot building.
The address is 4835 Town Crossing Drive on the southwest side of the shopping center, which is at Butler Boulevard and the Interstate 295 East Beltway.
The store and eight adjacent new retailers are scheduled to open Oct. 3, 2014.
While the Nordstrom permit application indicates 130,000 square feet of space, the plans show a more specific 127,468 square feet.
Women's shoes, handbags and cosmetics are on the first floor, along with men's shoes and furnishings.
Callison Architecture of Seattle is the architect. Nordstrom is based in Seattle.
EverBank expansion to cost $2.2M
Jacksonville-based EverBank continues to boost its presence Downtown.
Auld & White Constructors LLC is preparing for a $2.2 million renovation of the 27th and 28th floors at EverBank Center Downtown for an EverBank expansion.
The expansion increases its presence to 11 floors of the 30-story tower and its employment there from about 2,000 to 2,400.
Permit applications in review show the two additional floors, at 32,688 square feet each, would involve renovations for offices, conference rooms, break rooms, coffee/vending areas and other space.
Each permit carries a $1.1 million construction cost for the tenant improvements.
EverBank already occupies nine floors, totaling 279,000 square feet. The expansion takes it to about 344,000 square feet, said building representative Pamela Smith.
