The Church of Eleven22 continues to renovate space in a former Winn-Dixie store at Beach Boulevard and San Pablo Road.

The church is headquartered at the shopping plaza, San Pablo Family Center, in a former Walmart store.

The center is at 14286 Beach Blvd.

The Church of Eleven22 already converted 15,000 square feet of space in the former Winn-Dixie for its Hope’s Closet thrift store ministry. 

The city is reviewing a permit for the church to remodel another 5,200 square feet in the closed grocery store to add office space at a cost of $350,000. 

Plans show space for 11 offices, four areas for multi-occupant offices, two conference rooms, a break room, reception area and more functions.

A permit was approved May 11 for Bradley Bowen Construction to demolish interior suspended ceilings, flooring and nonload-bearing walls at the closed Winn-Dixie.

Spokeswoman Melinda Byrnes said the church is leasing the space next to Hope’s Closet and is building out space to support the ministry.

The Church of Eleven22 opened its worship center in September 2012 in the former Walmart space, which initially was renovated at a construction cost of $2.56 million, according to a city permit. More work has been done since.

The church acquired the Walmart property and the neighboring Hobby Lobby, which became a tenant, in 2017. 

The San Pablo center is owned among three entities, property records show. The church leases the Winn-Dixie space from Sleiman Enterprises.

ChenMed near opening 3 locations

Dedicated US Holdings LLC applied for Certificates of Use to do business as three ChenMed locations in Jacksonville.

ChenMed is part of Miami-based Dedicated Senior Medical Centers of Florida LLC.

ChenMed announced in March it expected to open three locations in Jacksonville this year as part of a nationwide expansion.

Plans and the certificate applications show ChenMed Dedicated Senior Medical Centers at 9420-22 Arlington Expressway in the Regency area; 3059 Edgewood Ave. W. in Northwest Jacksonville; and 6841 Blanding Blvd. in Southwest Jacksonville.

The primary care provider said 2018 would “be a banner year” for its more than 40 practices in six states, as well as for new Dedicated Senior Medical Centers in Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, Largo, Brandon and Philadelphia.

The Medicare Advantage provider said in March it achieved 28 percent growth in 2017 membership, while individual Medicare Advantage plan memberships in the United States grew by 6.1 percent.

David Hillegas, senior associate of brokerage services at Cushman & Wakefield, represented ChenMed in its Jacksonville site search.

Baptist North adding exam rooms

Baptist Medical Center proposes to expand its emergency/diagnostic building at the Baptist North Medical Center at northeast Dunn Avenue and Interstate 295.

The expansion adds 11 examination rooms, support areas and the relocation of existing staff facilities. 

The 4,085-square-foot addition is planned on the back of the existing ED building.

“The expansion will allow this facility to serve the needs of patients requiring emergency care in this region of Jacksonville,” states a letter to the city Development Services Division from The R-A-M Professional Group Inc., the project engineering consultant.

St. Augustine Road Caliber Collision moves forward

Caliber Collision continues working toward a St. Augustine Road auto body center.

Property owner Boxtown Brite Lite LLC is selling the site at 3633 S. Augustine Road to Caliber Collision for development of a nondrive collision-repair center.

It will restore inoperable vehicles that remain at the facility for three to four weeks on average.

Caliber Collision proposes to renovate the existing building, a former sign manufacturing center.

The 32,117-square-foot building, constructed in 1958 and since expanded, sits on about 1 acre.

The mobility fee, calculated to mitigate the traffic impact, is $8,049.

ABC Fine Wine & Spirits is preparing to take space in a new development at The Crossing at Town Center.

ABC Liquors Inc. and the KPMFranklin engineering and planning firm submitted site development plans to the city for the building.

The ABC store would comprise about 9,500 square feet on the first floor and 4,000 square feet on the second.

The project is planned on almost 1.5 acres at Town Center and Gate parkways.
