8,500-square-foot store will be next to Stein Mart
Roosevelt Square is preparing to add an Ulta Beauty store next to Stein Mart.
The city approved a permit Wednesday for RLH Construction LLC to demolish 8,500 square feet of interior space at 4399 Roosevelt Blvd., No. 1, at a cost of $295,000.
Plans show the work is to prepare for Ulta and new shops.
The city also is reviewing a permit application for a $260,000 interior conversion of 12,200 square feet there to “vanilla shell” status in the building next to Stein Mart.
A separate permit would be needed for final build-out for Ulta.
RLH Construction of Oviedo is the contractor, while Doherty Sommers Architects Engineers Inc. of Jacksonville Beach is the architect.
Owner Dewberry Capital Corp. of Atlanta is redeveloping the shopping center, including the recent demolition of the former Belk department store and space to accommodate Ulta.
Belladora takeout coming to Mandarin
Mandarin is gaining Belladora Foods, a takeout eatery that will focus on Latino and American foods.
The city issued a permit Wednesday for EMT Contractors to convert the former Dreamette space at 9825 San Jose Blvd. in Mandarin Outback Plaza for Belladora Foods at a construction cost of $28,000.
Owner Dan Martins, head of Orlando-based Belladora Foods LLC, said previously he was bringing to Jacksonville “all the Latino and American flavors combined with homemade recipes to deliver a new culinary experience serving to our clients savory snacks and finger foods.”
Martins said Belladora would offer about 10 snacks that it would sell in individual or party-size portions.
He said the individual size “goes perfect with an ice-cold soda or a cup of coffee either for lunch or a quick meal in the middle of the afternoon.”
The larger portion, which is finger-food size items sold in larger amounts, is “perfect for group reunions and family celebrations.”
He said products will include empanadas, esfihas pastries and Brazilian coxinhas chicken croquettes.
Martins said it is his first restaurant in Jacksonville, “and also the first step of a big project that me and my partner have in mind.”
Plans filed with the city show the former Dreamette space will be converted into a new takeout restaurant for Belladora Pastry & Eatery Market. They show a customer area and work area in the 1,360 square feet of space.
