Demolition has commenced on a Quality Foods supermarket in Jacksonville, FL. In its place will be 7th and Hubbard, a mixed-use complex that could offer close to 200 units and various commercial ventures.
Sources report that the structure will measure five stories above grade. Per the Jacksonville Business Journal, the first floor will boast 18-foot-high ceilings. The project will also offer 12,000 square feet of retail, along with a new 20,000-square-foot grocery store. Previously, plans were to make the five-story building measure seven stories.
Both residents and shoppers alike will benefit from the 400 parking spots. 7th and Hubbard could cost $50 million to complete. ELEV8 is the developer. It purchased the build site for $2.375 million in September 2021.
As part of the purchase, the developer also acquired a second location that it plans to turn into a 300-seat restaurant. As of May 2023, plans were in the works to secure a liquor license. Group 4 Design is the architect, with online conceptual renderings showing a mid-rise complex.
The Jacksonville-based firm presently has 20 active projects, with many still pending. Eisman & Russo is the engineer. 7th and Hubbard is taking shape at 27 E. Seventh Street, Jacksonville, FL, 32206, in Duval County.
