The 45,000-s.f. Publix will include a drive-through pharmacy. The development is part of the master-planned RiverTown residential community built by developer Mattamy Homes along the St. Johns River. The commercial development will offer adjacent retail shops and outparcels among its available space.
“We are pleased and excited to be part of this growing and vibrant community and look forward to providing RiverTown residents with the superior products and legendary service our customers have been accustomed to for more than 80 years,” said Dwaine Stevens, Publix media and community relations manager.
“The addition of commercial amenities in RiverTown, anchored by a company as respected and customer-oriented as Publix, speaks to our ongoing dedication to meeting the needs of our homeowners and providing an exceptional lifestyle experience,” said Jason Sessions, VP of land acquisition and development with Mattamy’s Jacksonville Division. “We’re very much looking forward to working with Publix and other partners to bring the shopping experience at RiverTown to life.”
