Retail notes: Tamaya Market Sprouts is taking steps forward

Shell buildings planned at Beachwood Plaza, The Forum at Greenbriar.

Tamaya Market, which will be anchored by one of two announced Sprouts Farmers Markets in Jacksonville, is in St. Johns River Water Management District Review.

The 11.22-acre Tamaya Market, at northeast Beach and Kernan boulevards, will comprise a 75,000-square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center and three outparcels.

Plans show a 30,239-square-foot anchor store with a 12,000-square-foot retail building adjacent to one side and an 11,200-square-foot store to the other.

The center is at northwest Beach and Tamaya boulevards within the Tamaya community.

Harbour Retail Partners of Wrightsville, North Carolina, is the developer. It bought the site late last year.

Randy Kelley, Harbour Retail Partners manager and developer, said in December the more than $20 million project could be completed near the end of 2019. Phoenix-based Sprouts wants to open in the first half of 2020, which is driving the timing of the project. 

The first Sprouts Farmers Market store in Jacksonville is under construction at the former Best Buy store in The Markets at Town Center. That one is further along. 

Sprouts has not announced an opening date other than the second quarter this year.

Owner SF Markets LLC of Phoenix applied for a certificate of use for the 30,082-square-foot store at 4873 Town Center Parkway.
