NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. – TriBridge Residential and TLM Realty Corp has announced plans for its retail and commercial development in Neptune Beach near the Beaches Town Center. Saltwater Row will be a retail, entertainment and hotel center near Atlantic Boulevard and Third Street.
“We are thrilled to announce our new and exciting vision for Saltwater Row,” Katherine Mosley , TriBridge residential principal of development, said. “Our goal is to transform a sluggish plaza into a dynamic shopping and entertainment destination with curated retail, restaurants and hotels, attracting locals and visitors alike.”
Saltwater Row’s plans are underway. The site is being designed as a destination for community residents and visitors. The first phase will include 30,000 square feet of retail on the first floor with a 44-room boutique hotel above the retail, according to the realtors.
The development’s first phase will include public courtyards, tree-lined streets and ample parking. Currently in the planning phase, construction on phase one is anticipated to commence in early 2020.
Plans for the second phase include an approximately 150-room upscale hotel from a national brand featuring a custom design to complement Saltwater Row’s architectural style.
Franklin Street Real Estate Services is actively pre-leasing Saltwater Row. The company has letters of intent and lease negotiations underway with several retailers, including a brew pub, breakfast-focused café concept, lifestyle and yoga studio, gourmet doughnut shop and a local clothing boutique.
