New Publix on its way to St. Augustine

Published in the Jacksonville Business Journal on August 13, 2015:

Skinner Bros Realty Co. will be building a 54,000-square-foot Publix in the Moultrie Square Shopping Center in St. Augustine as part of a "large-scale enhancement project" of the center.

A 48,500-square-foot store is at the site now; that will be demolished (although the pharmacy will stay open throughout the project).

Other parts of the project include a new entrance to the center on Wildwood Drive, an updated facade and increased lighting and new striping in the parking lot.

The project is slated to begin at the end of 2015 and be wrapped up in the third quarter of 2016.

Skinner Bros. will be the project manager, with a general contractor selected by the end of August, the company said.

The architect is Ervin, Lovett, Miller and the civil engineer is Almond Engineering.
