JEA is reviewing a utility service request for a 1.4-acre block at Bay and Broad streets.

JEA is reviewing a service availability request for First Coast Energy to develop a Daily’s gas station and convenience store Downtown.

The March 25 request identifies the 1.4-acre block bounded by Bay, Broad, Forsyth and Jefferson streets.

A former bank drive-thru at 60 N. Broad St. built in 1976 and a three-story building,  a former nightclub, at 618 W. Forsyth St. built in 1914 are on the site. states the nightclub structure is under contract.

Civil engineer England-Thims & Miller asks JEA to review the availability of utilities for the site, which is owned by Mark L. Rosenberg.

Rosenberg, a lawyer, referred questions to First Coast Energy.

First Coast Energy said it didn't have ownership of property in that area.

"We do not own any site downtown so I am not in a position to comment on development plans," said First Coast Energy Chief Operating Officer John Rodriguez in an email.

JEA is reviewing the availability of electric, water, sewer and reuse services.

Jacksonville-based First Coast Energy owns and operates 37 Daily’s stores across the state, according to its website. They sell Shell gasoline.
