Landlord Ashco Inc. announced Dec. 16 that Modani Furniture will open in the first quarter of 2023 in its Town Center Outparcel building.
The city is reviewing a permit application for the estimated $137,800 build-out of 6,800 square feet within Ashco’s building at 4853 Big Island Drive.
It will be a tenant in the building with Amara Med Spa, Mayday Ice Cream and DOS Coffee & Wine. Ashco said 1,812 square feet remains available.
Florida Nova LLC is the contractor.
Miami-based Modani Furniture says on modani.com that it has 17 stores in seven states. Its seven stores in Florida comprise Boca Raton, Doral, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Naples, Tampa and West Palm Beach.
The site says Modani was created by three design enthusiasts. Its collection of “designer-inspired décor features sleek lines, architectural structures, exciting shades, and everything else to turn your home into a space you adore.”
“We focus on simple geometric shapes rather than the heavy ornamentation typically found in traditional or contemporary furnishings.”
It sells in stores and online.
It sells living, bedroom, dining, outdoor, office, lighting and home decor products. It provides room planning and design consulting.
“We source beautiful materials from around the world, such as raw-edge acacia wood, stainless steel, nickel or aluminum, velvet, suede, and silk to create furniture profiles that are transitional, so your home looks amazing whether it’s a loft located in a major city or a small town.”
Jacksonville-based Ashco bought the former Thomasville furniture store near The Markets at Town Center in August 2020 for conversion into the multitenant plaza.
Ashcenter at St. Johns LLC paid almost $2.3 million for the 13,200-square-foot store on 1.27 acres. It was built in 2007.
Ashco is led by president Edward Ashurian, who manages the LLC that bought the property.
Ashco bought the property from DH Jax L.L.C., an investor group run by The Chambers Group of Charlotte, North Carolina.
