Two Gate Express Carwashes are on track for development. 

• A Gate Express Carwash is planned at 1700 S. Third St. in Jacksonville Beach. BFC Property Acquisition I LLC paid $2.1 million for 1.18 acres from Ameris Bank. The purchase was made Sept. 27. The 6,116-square-foot former Atlantic Coast Bank was developed in 1976.

Ameris Bancorp bought Atlantic Coast in May and announced that as of June 22, six locations, including the Jacksonville Beach address, would close and merge into Ameris branches.

• A Gate Express Carwash is in review for Barkoskie and Old St. Augustine roads. The proposed 5,089-square-foot car wash is planned on a 2.55-acre site at 11533 Old St. Augustine Road. Prosser Inc. is the civil engineer.

The city and the St. Johns River Water Management District are reviewing the plans.
