Aldi appears to be expanding its Northeast Florida presence into the Regency area.
A site plan for CB Square at 9333 Atlantic Blvd., at northeast Atlantic and Southside boulevards, shows an Aldi grocery store next to Mattress Firm.
The plan is on the website for The Shopping Center Group, which represents the property. Aldi appears to be taking space formerly used by Bed Bath & Beyond.
That plan shows Aldi will operate in a 25,988-square-foot building. With a 4,417-square-foot space within that box for lease, the grocer likely will occupy 21,571 square feet.
Aldi will lease in a larger strip center on the property. At the other end of that center is a vacant 33,444-square-foot space formerly used by Circuit City that is available for lease.
A smaller strip center on the property is occupied by Panera Bread, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Starbucks Coffee.
The Regency Aldi would be the sixth location either developed or identified for the Germany-based discount food chain.
Aldi already operates at 9041 Southside Blvd. in Jacksonville and in St. Augustine and Middleburg.
It intends to build a store in Town Center Promenade near St. Johns Town Center and in West Jacksonville along Normandy Boulevard near Interstate 295 and Memorial Park Road.
Aldi also is considered a potential tenant for Oakleaf Corner in Southwest Jacksonville.
The company announced recently it plans to open 650 stores across the U.S., expecting to operate almost 2,000 locations by the end of 2018.
It also said it intends to remodel more than 1,300 of its U.S. stores by 2020 to provide a more modern design and focus on fresh items, including produce, dairy and bakery sections.
