Nordstrom will build at St. Johns Town Center | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Seattle-based Nordstrom announced Tuesday it plans to build a 124,000-square-foot store at the St. Johns Center to open in time for the 2014 holiday shopping season.
"We've had our eye on Jacksonville for a long time, so it's gratifying for us to now have this opportunity to open our doors at St. Johns Town Center," said Erik Nordstrom, president of stores for Nordstrom, Inc. in a news release.
Nordstrom will anchor a new wing on the southwest side of the outdoor shopping center, which is co-owned by Simon Property Group and Ben Carter Properties.
Carter Properties executives Ben Carter and Paisley Boney said, "When we first started work on St. Johns Town Center in 2003, we were hoping we could attract Nordstrom to the project and the City of Jacksonville. We are delighted they are joining the project and are excited about their impact and enhancement of fashion retail for the customers of St. Johns Town Center."
Other tenants for the new wing haven't been announced yet.
Simon Properties also operates The Avenues Mall, Orange Park Mall and Westland Park Plaza.
