Published on January 17, 2023 at 10:09 am

An outdated 65-year-old shopping center near downtown Jacksonville is gone but the site of the former St. Nicholas neighborhood landmark is taking on new life.

Demolished in April 2022, Southgate Plaza is the site for The Jack on Beach, a new 295-unit apartment community featuring resort-style amenities from developers Chance Partners LLC of Jacksonville and EJF Capital LLC based in Arlington Va.

The 10-acre site at 3428 Beach Blvd. will feature three, 4-story apartment buildings plus a 2-story carriage house building with two townhome units and six garages. The apartments will include 142 one-bedroom, 43 one bedroom plus den, 99 two-bedroom and 11 three-bedroom units, Jeff Rosen, Chance Partners principal, told the Florida Times-Union.
