Approval of the Sarnova distribution center under review | Jax Daily Record | Jacksonville Daily Record
Sarnova takes a significant step towards a distribution center in Jacksonville.
The city is currently considering a permit application for Sarnova to build 130,567 square feet at No. 2 2619 Ignition Drive at Park 295 at a cost of $ 2.45 million.
The approval request identifies the project as Sigma, which appears to be a placeholder name. Sarnova is listed in one of the receipts as well as in a marketing brochure.
Dav-Lin Interior Contractors Inc. is the contractor. The architect is StudioNorth Architecture of Riverside, Missouri.
Sarnova will lease space in Park 295 industrial park in northwest Jacksonville.
Jacksonville City Council on February 9th approved a grant of $ 260,000 for an undisclosed national pharmaceutical and medical device distributor to rent space in northwest Jacksonville for its southeastern US distribution center.
The project is code-named Robalo. Sarnova from Dublin, Ohio matches the description.
Documents filed with the legislature say the company is considering leasing a newly developed warehouse that spans 13,000 square feet. Construction of the Park 295 building began in 2018.
Robalo told officials at the city’s economic development bureau that they will invest $ 6.72 million and create 25 full-time jobs by the end of 2023.
Sarnova is shown in a brochure on Park 295 Industrial Park as a new tenant in the industrial center on southwest Interstate 295 and Duval Road.
The city will require Robalo to invest at least $ 3 million in the project site by December 31, 2023 in order to receive the Recapture Enhanced Value Grant.
Robalo will also need to demonstrate that all jobs will be in place by the end of 2023 under the agreement.
The distributor is required to make tenant improvements to the warehouse of $ 2.4 million by December 31, 2022.
The REV grant will be revoked if the company does not invest at least $ 3 million by the end of 2023 as agreed.
The developer is NorthPoint Development of Riverside, Missouri.
