Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen submits plans for $1.3M Town Center restaurant


Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen submitted plans for city review to build a $1.3 million restaurant at The Strand at Town Center.

The 8,012-square-foot restaurant is designed on 0.46 acre at 4897 Town Center Parkway. No contractor is listed.

In May, Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen said it would open at the new shopping center under development by PGP Jacksonville LLC, part of the Preferred Growth Properties real-estate subsidiary of Books-A-Million Inc.

It is across from The Markets at Johns Town Center.

President and CEO Ian Baines said the restaurants typically are 7,000 square feet, seat 255 guests and employ 200 people.

He said the Jacksonville location will open in fall or winter 2017, pending contract and lease agreements.

The privately held Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen was founded in 1979 and is based in Irving, Texas.

The lunch and dinner menu includes appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pasta, burgers, steaks, desserts, cocktails, beer and wine.

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen did not say whether Jacksonville could be a multiple-location market, but it said there are four each in Orlando and Tampa.

The company had no additional information Tuesday.

Dick’s Wings considering Harmonious Monks spot

Dick’s Wings & Grill wants to open in the former Harmonious Monks location at The Crossroads at Mandarin shopping center in Mandarin.

Zoning applications show Dick’s Wings would open in the 3,627-square-foot end spot at the shopping center at 10550 Old St. Augustine Road. Plans show 153 to 156 seats.

The center is anchored by a Walmart Neighborhood Market and is owned by Gatlin Development Co.

Dick’s Wings has 22 locations in North Florida and Southeast Georgia.

It wants a zoning exception for the sale and service of alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption and a waiver to reduce the required minimum distance from a church or school from 1,500 feet to 360 feet.

It notes the previous tenant had a liquor license.

Permit sought for Lakewood Daily’s

First Coast Energy’s Shell station in Lakewood is coming down to make way for a new Daily’s and Daily’s Dash fast-casual café.

Jacksonville-based First Coast Energy applied for a permit to replace the structure at 5640 San Jose Blvd. with an almost 4,500-square-foot Daily’s gas station and convenience store.

There’s also 3,883 square feet of exterior space. Plans show four fueling islands.

No contractor is listed for the $1.5 million construction job. A site-clearing permit also is in review.

The almost 2,300-square-foot station was built in 1969 on the 0.64-acre site. It is at northwest San Jose Boulevard and the University Boulevard West extension.

First Coast Energy also is building two other Daily’s along the Hendricks Avenue and San Jose Boulevard corridor.

PetSmart build-out is $690,000 project

Build-out is pending for PetSmart at the Mandarin South shopping center under renovation.

A permit application shows a $690,000 project to fit out a 17,470-square-foot PetSmart at 11700 San Jose Blvd., No. 18.

Hoar Construction LLC of Birmingham, Ala., is the contractor.

Shopping center owner PGP Jacksonville LLC is redeveloping the site to also include a new Earth Fare grocery store and Tijuana Flats restaurant to join several existing tenants.

Phillips Edison buys Harbor Village

Phillips Edison & Co. Ltd. paid almost $24.83 million for the 10-year-old Harbour Village shopping center in a deed executed Thursday and recorded Monday with the Duval County Clerk of Courts.

The center, at 13475 Atlantic Blvd., is anchored by Stein Mart and The Fresh Market.

Salt Lake City-based Phillips Edison, through Harbour Village Station LLC, bought the almost 120,000-square-foot center from Harbour Village Holdings LLC.

Harbour Village Holdings, part of Global Fund Investments of Sunrise, took title to the 18-acre property in 2011.

Cincinnati-based Phillips Edison already owns two shopping centers in Jacksonville — the Publix Super Markets Inc.-anchored Deerwood Lake Commons along Southside Boulevard and the Rowe’s IGA-anchored Promenade Shopping Center along Beach Boulevard.

Phillips Edison says its primary acquisition focus is grocery-anchored neighborhood and community shopping centers. Its nationwide holdings include more than 320 properties and it continues to look for more.
