Southside / Tinseltown Blog

Ten years later, St. Johns Town Center see its long awaited expansion.
Ten years after it was established, the first major expansion of St. Johns Town Center is on the drawing board. 
It's been about 10 years since the 200-acre St. Johns Town Center in the city's Southside was established, and set the standard for what an upscale shopping destination in Jacksonville should look like. After a market slowdown, and a new full service Nordstrom's installed, the expansion that was always expected may now come to fruition.

There’s a bonus room that can serve any purpose you can imagine: guest bedroom, office, game or hobby room.


The French Pantry in Jacksonville FL - Proscuitto, Artichoke & Mozzarella Bruschetta
The French Pantry in Jacksonville FL - Proscuitto, Artichoke & Mozzarella Bruschetta

It's the worst kept secret in Jacksonville. The French Pantry on Powers Avenue is unique because it depends solely on reputation and quality – no foot traffic, little to no signage, and nobody just drops in because they happen to be driving by. It’s only open from 11:00 to 2:00. It’s a luncheon destination that requires some planning, and though it lives up to expectations every time, it’s simply not designed for the “Type A” terminally impatient. Budget at least 90 minutes of your time and $15 to $18 of your money. There’s typically a 30-or-so minute wait in line. Is it worth it? If your constitution will bear it, the answer is yes, absolutely. It’s not for whiners. If you can just get over it, and get past the location and the logistics, it’s more than likely you’ll fully understand the allure, because the food trumps everything else.

Brio Tuscan Grill at St. Johns Town Center
Brio Tuscan Grill at St. Johns Town Center

Brio is Italian for enthusiastic vigor, vivacity, verve.  With a definition like this, the new Brio Tuscan Grille, now under construction at the St. Johns Town Center, will fit right in to the city's most popular shopping mecca.

Slated for an August opening, the 8,535-square-foot restaurant is situated on the growing perimeter of the St. Johns Town Center between the main shopping area and J. Turner Butler Boulevard. Seasons 52 restaurant was the first to build on the perimeter of the St. Johns Town center, as the Center is literally "busting out" of its original borders. (There's also 5000 Town a new luxury aparment complex that's broken ground in the same area, on Big Island Drive). There will be 120 new jobs for Jacksonville, and a menu selection that will make you think you're dining in an Italian Tuscan Village.

5000 Town at the St. Johns Town Center

The St. John's Town Center area in Southside is growing again this, time is a new Luxury Residential Rental Community to be called 5000 Town.  The project is well under way and is slated to be completed in November. The Complex will feature 130 luxury apartment units and will be located adjacent to the Season's 52 right on Big Island Drive.
