Support and enthusiasm grows for the IDO Florida Outlet Mall at Regency. Invited guest, Mr. Joe Whitaker of the Jacksonville Office of Economic Development met with the lead team of IDO to discuss long range plans and immediate actions involving the revitalization of Regency and the upcoming store openings on April 6th. One part of the discussion focused on incentives offered by the city when developments like these create new jobs and increase the value of the surrounding areas.
A major highlight was the introduction of AsianTown, a new 100,000 sq.ft. shopping destination that will include food, apparel and gifts. Asian Town is the first of its kind retail concept, that will act as a cultural center for the rapidly growing Asian population in Jacksonville.
