The city approved the Jacksonville project to redevelop property at 10939 Atlantic Blvd.
Arlington Toyota will transform its Jacksonville dealership property near the northeast corner of Atlantic Boulevard and St. Johns Bluff Road.
The city issued five permits Jan. 29 for Stellar Group Inc. to build a new dealership showroom and renovate existing structures at 10939 Atlantic Blvd. at a construction cost totaling almost $11.9 million.
Permits show Arlington Toyota will build a two-story dealership comprising 50,170 square feet of enclosed space and 9,017 square feet of unenclosed space; renovate its existing 36,381-square-foot dealership; renovate the collision center; and make other improvements.
Two retail and office-flex buildings facing Atlantic Boulevard will be demolished for the project.
The dealership was built in 1999. The shopping center and office-flex space, purchased by Arlington Realty LLC, was built in 1984.
The city and the St. Johns River Water Management District reviewed plans and permit applications for the 12.41-acre site.
The district issued a permit in April. Matthews Design Group told the district in a Feb. 19 letter that the office-warehouse buildings will be removed, and a new dealership and showroom will be constructed with associated parking and stormwater conveyance revisions.
