The Florida Times-Union
July 23, 2013 – With its plans for a hospital in North Jacksonville on hold, UF Health Jacksonville will break ground soon on a new $27.7 million office medical building in the area.
The former Shands Jacksonville just received the building permit for a six-story, 210,000-square-foot building on Max Leggett Parkway near River City Marketplace. The ground is already being cleared, and the hospital will hold a ground-breaking next month, a spokesman said. With construction expecting to take 18 or 19 months, opening would be in early 2015.
