D.H. Griffin Wrecking Co. applied to the city Monday for a permit to demolish The Jacksonville Landing.
The application shows D.H. Griffin will demolish the city-owned Landing in three phases, starting with buildings on the south side of the property closest to the St. Johns River.
The second phase is the removal of pavers and pavement in the Landing’s courtyard area.
The main building will be demolished in the final phase to ensure the last tenant, BBVA Bank, can operate until it must vacate by Oct. 28.
Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. is the consulting engineer.
The city took control of the 32-year-old riverfront shopping mall in February after a $15 million settlement with Sleiman Enterprises Inc. The city owned the property while Sleiman owned the building.
City Council legislation approving the agreement included $1.5 million for tenant lease terminations and other expenses.
The permit application shows D.H Griffin estimates the demolition job cost at $1.074 million, consistent with the bid awarded by the city June 20.
D.H. Griffin has until May 28 to demolish the two-story, 56-foot-tall structure, according to the deadline set by the city. The Landing has 178,838 square feet of enclosed space and 34,107 square feet of outdoor space.
Site work began Aug. 8, when workers for D.H. Griffin installed fencing around the job site. Subcontractor Eco Relics began removing items from the Landing on Aug. 26 for resale.
Council approved $225,000 in September as part of Mayor Lenny Curry’s 2019-20 Capital Improvement Plan to pay for a marketing analysis for the property.
The administration wants to spend an additional $2 million by fiscal year 2021-22 for pre-engineering, engineering and landscape work on the Landing’s public space.
