    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.

    New Indoor Skydiving Facility May Be Opening In Jacksonville




    iFLY, a company who operates indoor skydiving facilities, is looking at the possibility of opening one of them in our area near the Town Center off I-295.

    iFLY is the experiential entertainment company that created modern indoor skydiving. They make the dream of flight a reality by giving their customers “wings” in a safe and reliable environment.

    iFLY started in 1998 as SkyVenture, LLC. Once they had developed the technology to create a stable, wall-to-wall cushion of air in a flight chamber, they knew they could offer an incredibly realistic and safe indoor skydiving experience. They opened their first indoor skydiving facility in 1999. Between 1999 and 2005, they opened three more facilities. In 2005, they rebranded themselves iFLY, maintaining SkyVenture as their design and manufacturing company.

    They welcome flyers from 3 to 103. If you have reasonable health and fitness you can fly. iFly will do everything they can to help you fly because their goal is to deliver the dream of flight to everyone

    Today, iFLY has 37 locations around the world in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia, and the list continues to grow.
