    Riverside Avondale Preservation's 34th Annual Luminaria




    Luminaria is one of Riverside and Avondale’s premier celebrations. The event was established by local volunteers as a way for neighbors to commemorate the season by walking amongst the sidewalk candles to a social event with friends. Over 20,000 candles will be on display throughout the historic district.

    Since its founding in 1974, RAP has been an advocate for active preservation of our neighborhood’s historical assets. The challenge of balancing preservation with progress is an enduring one. When historic buildings are allowed to deteriorate or are torn down, or when our historical street grid is eliminated, a part of our past disappears forever. When that happens, we lose history that helps us know who we are, and we lose opportunities to live and work in the kinds of interesting and attractive surroundings that older buildings provide.

    As a response to this need, the organization’s board and staff work with residents, businesses, the city planning and zoning departments, and like preservation groups in the state to ensure that our history and the traces of our cultural heritage remain intact.

    Riverside Avondale Preservation, Inc. (RAP) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance and preserve...   [Read More]

    Whit’s Frozen Custard Is Opening The Fifth Jacksonville Location Friday, August 10th




     

    GRAND OPENING ANNOUNCEMENT:

    We are excited to announce the Grand Opening of Whit's South Jax on Friday, August 10th, 2018. Doors open at 11am. Stay tuned for special prizes to be announced in the coming week.

    In May 2014, Michael and Jessica McKinley opened Whit’s Frozen Custard in Atlantic Beach, Florida. With roots in Ohio that brought the McKinley’s back several times a year, Whit’s Frozen Custard was always at the top of the “must-have” list when visiting. Michael and Jessica were thrilled with the opportunity to bring their favorite frozen dessert home to Northeast Florida. Whit’s has expanded in the Jacksonville area to now include locations in Jacksonville Beach, Atlantic Beach, Mandarin,  Avondale and South Jacksonville. The stores are locally owned and operated.

    Frozen custard recipes date back to the early 1900's but it wasn't until the 1920's that commercial frozen custard machines were invented. It is said that the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago popularized frozen custard and by 1940 frozen custard stands were located all over the East and Midwest of the United States.

    Frozen custard is still created with the same pure...   [Read More]

    City Hall Annex Implosion Set To Begin Next Year




    Downtown Jacksonville will start off with a bang next year as the city intends to implode the old City Hall Annex at 220 E. Bay St on the second weekend of January.

    Sam Mousa, chief administrative officer for Mayor Lenny Curry, stated that the date is subject to change. Mouse said the seven story courthouse building will undergo “conventional demolition” that doesn't require an implosion.

    Environmental Holdings Group LLC of North Carolina submitted the lowest bid of $7.98 million in June to demolish the 16-story annex and the old Duval County Courthouse.

    Built in 1956, the courthouse comprises almost 360,000 square feet of space, much more than the annex according to property records.

    The annex, built in 1960, contains 200,000 square feet of space but is much taller than the courthouse. Environmental Holdings Group obtained permitting and began work in early August on both buildings after the city issued notice to proceed on July 26.

    Contractors are performing interior demolition starting from the top floors down in both buildings. The Interior demolition on the annex building is expected to run through December and the work inside the courthouse could finish in late October or November.
