Aldi just opened its fifth grocery store in Northeast Florida and it already has two more on the way. The company has stores planned in Yulee and the Oakleaf area, an employee there has confirmed.
The Yulee store will be on State Road 200. She didn’t have an exact location, but said it will be near the commercial district clustered around Chester Road. The company has a vacant piece of property under contract and will build a store there, she said. It probably won’t open until 2020.
The Oakleaf store will be near the Oakleaf Town Center around Argyle Forest Boulevard and Old Middleburg Road. That’s likely to open the third quarter of 2019, she said.
Aldi’s stores in Northeast Florida are in St. Augustine, Middleburg, Southside Boulevard, Normandy Boulevard and the most recent one at the St. Johns Town Center.
The chain has nearly 1,700 stores in 35 states and announced in June that it planned to invest $3.4 billion in expanding to 2,500 U.S. stores by 2022. Another $1.6 billion would be spent remodeling most of its existing stores.
KB Home is about to start a development on Logan Pointe, a 105-lot community on Fouraker Road between Normandy Boulevard and Lenox Avenue on the Westside. It’s all single-family with lots 60 and 70 feet wide, with homes 1,430 to 2,716 square feet. Prices are expected to start at $189,900.
Work will start this month with the model grand opening planned for March. The company paid $1,942,500 for the 43.72 acres.
County Road 220
The Reservation, a planned 7.3-acre community on County Road 220 at Chief Ridaught Trail, goes before Clay County’s Development Review Committee on Thursday. Plans call for 16 detached single-family homes, 10 attached single-family homes in two buildings and 16 apartments in two more buildings.
It’s being developed by Wiggins Construction Co. of Green Cove Springs.
XL Soccer World of Orlando paid $550,760 for almost eight acres on Baymeadows Way West, off Philips Highway. There it plans a indoor soccer facility I first wrote about in March.
Ciaran McArdle, co-founder and CEO, said it will include two turf fields for 6v6 soccer, as well as two more for futsal, a version of soccer played on a hard surface. Those can also be converted to volleyball courts, he said.
There’s also room for a full 11v11 field outside that could come at a later date.
The project is still in the permitting stage, but McArdle said he hopes work will begin in November and expects it to take about a year. The company has six locations from Florida to Maine.
J. Turner &Co., a furniture store that opened last year in Ponte Vedra Beach, has opened a second location at 6100 Philips Highway. It’s owned by Mark and Jennifer Turner, who are also part-owners of V Pizza and former owners of YoBe yogurt.
The new store is 47,000 square feet, many times larger than the PVB store, so it’s a showroom and warehouse. But the basic merchandise — furniture, home furnishings, lighting, art and rugs — will be from the same vendors. Just more of it.
While much of the merchandise is American made, the company has its own factory in Bali making teak pieces.
