Starbucks proposed at Baymeadows Park and Dunkin’ is making plans at Southside Quarter.
Jacksonville appears to love its coffee.
Two prominent Southside retail projects are kicking off with two of the largest coffee chains – Starbucks and Dunkin’.
Starbucks Coffee Co. is proposed on an outparcel at Baymeadows Park at 7981 Baymeadows Road E., east of Interstate 95.
Dunkin’ is in line for a store along Gate Parkway in Southside Quarter, west of I-295.
A site plan for Baymeadows Park, still a vacant site, shows a 2,500-square-foot Building 1, and a rendering shows a store labeled “roasted bean coffee.”
Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc., the civil engineer, seeks a JEA service availability determination for the project.
The $15 million, 95,000-square-foot Baymeadows Park is planned on 5.8 acres at Baymeadows Road and Baymeadows Circle East on the site of the former Baymeadows Golf Club.
Joyce Development Group LLC plans five buildings comprising a 64,225-square-foot, 120-room suites hotel; 3,500-square-foot and 7,980-square-foot high-turnover restaurants; a 2,515-square-foot coffee shop with a drive-thru; and a 16,780-square-foot, two-story building with restaurant, office and medical office space.
Dunkin’ seeks a service determination as well and also submitted civil plans to the city for a 2,450-square-foot building on about 0.87 acres with a drive-thru at Gate Parkway and Commerce Village Drive.
It would seat 80 customers.
EnVision Design + Engineering is the civil engineer.
Southside Quarter is a 110-acre project where apartments, townhomes and courtyard homes are developed and an office building is in development for McKesson Corp.
The Hines group is developing the mixed-use property at southwest I-295 and Butler Boulevard. It will comprise office, residential, hotel, retail, commercial and more.
