The Mathis Report: Daily’s planned for site along Marbon Road; Kay Jewelers leaves Regency Square

First Coast Energy intends to develop a Daily’s, Dash and a standard car wash.

Jacksonville-based First Coast Energy LLP bought property at northeast San Jose Boulevard and Marbon Road for development of a gas station and convenience store and a car wash.

First Coast Energy intends to develop a Daily’s, Dash and a standard car wash on the property at 3011 Marbon Road, which has been considered for several other uses.

The Jacksonville Transportation Authority sold the 9.11-acre property to First Coast Energy for $2.4 million June 14. JTA spokeswoman Leigh Ann Rassler said the property is zoned for retail and residential use.

She said JTA is working with First Coast Energy for a reduced Park-N-Ride as part of the development.

First Coast Energy spokeswoman Andrea Kane said there was no time frame for development. The company owns and operates 37 Daily’s stores, according to

“Daily’s is committed to growing our presence here in our Northeast Florida home,” Kane said.

 “As the Daily’s brand continues to grow, so will our commitment to the neighborhoods and communities in which we work and live, specifically right here in the greater Jacksonville area,” she said.
