Building Up Jax: Homestead revival gets new location, Baptist adding another garage

Building Up Jax

NEW SPOT FOR PROPOSED HOMESTEAD REVIVAL

Former Jax eatery Homestead Restaurant has a new location for its proposed revival.

The new restaurant will now go in at 1253 Penman Rd. in the spot formerly occupied by Tomo Japanese Restaurant.

The restaurant had previously occupied the space now held by Taco Lu for over 60 years, before shutting its doors for good in 2010.

No word on when this new location, which was announced via Facebook, will open.

BAPTIST HEALTH ADDING ANOTHER SAN MARCO GARAGE

Baptist Health received a permit for the construction of a 4-story parking garage at 1350 Flagler Ave. at a cost of $17 million.

It’ll join the hospital’s other new garage along San Marco Ave., which is nearing completion, and will act in support of its massive new expansion in that area.
