Jacksonville’s Southgate Plaza mall is set to be demolished

A shopping district on Beach Boulevard that has been known for decades is about to be demolished.

Jacksonville building inspectors this month approved the demolition permit for the Southgate Plaza mall, east of the St. Nicholas neighborhood. The center, built in 1957 according to real estate appraiser records, was largely vacant at 3428 Beach Blvd. One of the few remaining tenants is a Subway sandwich shop, along with several other small businesses.

The demolition will cost $500,000. Lockwood Quality Demolition Inc. is the contractor. A date has not been announced.
