Finally there is great news for all the people living in Durbin Park in St. Johns County. For all these folks that have had to drive miles for shopping and entertainment their patience has paid off. Durbin Park will soon have it’s very own town center and it will be the largest shopping center built so far.
Covering 1600 acres, at build out it would add an estimated 2.4 million square feet of retail, 2.8 million square feet of office space, 999 multi-family units and 350 hotel rooms. It also could include a theater, an event lawn with a video wall, a Ferris wheel and merry-go-round.
This is exciting news for Jacksonville and St. Johns county. This could be a game changer. The town center in Southside is the go to spot and some believe it’s been a negative to our downtown district. The Southside town center might have it’s own economic challenge once Durbin Park is completed.
