Jenkins Hyundai seeks permitting for Atlantic Boulevard dealership

The city is reviewing a permit application for Jenkins Hyundai of Northeast Jacksonville at 11107 Atlantic Blvd.

No contractor is specified on the permit application for the 34,000-square-foot dealership planned on 9.43 acres at a project cost of $4.5 million.

DRJ Land Co. Investments LLC owns the property.

Tom Formanek, president and CEO of Ocala-based Jenkins Automotive Group, said previously the group hopes to start construction by August or September. It will take about nine months to build.

Jenkins Hyundai of Northeast Jacksonville will be developed along Atlantic Boulevard between Jaguar Land Rover Jacksonville and Coggin Honda Jacksonville.

Plans show two buildings — one for a showroom/office and one for service/parts.

Formanek estimated the investment will be about $9 million for land and construction.

DRJ Land Co. paid $4.15 million for the property in November. Its principals are Donald Jenkins and Formanek.

Formanek said Beeline Development Inc. is the contractor. It built five of the Jenkins dealerships.

Jenkins Automotive Group operates Hyundai dealerships in Ocala and Leesburg in Florida and in Lithia Springs in Georgia.

It also owns Acura, Kia and Mazda dealerships in Ocala; Honda, Nissan and Volkswagen dealerships in Leesburg; and a Kia dealership in Gainesville.

Atlantic Boulevard sports about 17 dealerships from Regency Square Mall at Monument Road east to Kernan Boulevard.

DJR Land Co. LLC applied for a minor modification to its Planned Unit Development to eliminate a proposed secondary access point on the west side of its property.

It said it was unable to reach an agreement with an adjacent property owner for a shared access point.

The Strand at Town Center lands tenants

More tenants are building-out space at The Strand at Town Center, one of two new shopping centers under development along Town Center Parkway across from St. Johns town Center.

Yogurt Mountain will join The Strand in one of the smaller shop spaces at 4800 Town Center Parkway. Build-out is pending for a 1,568-square-foot space at a project cost of $150,000.

Mattress1One leased a space at 4852 Town Center Parkway, No. 106.  Build-out of the almost 4,000-square-foot store is estimated at $200,000.

No contractor is identified for either project.
