Located at the intersection of Edgewood Avenue and Plymouth Street, Jacksonville-based Silverfield Group is proposing to demolish the former Edgewood Theater in order to redevelop the property with a 97,200 square foot, three-story storage facility. In addition, the project would include a retail component in a smaller one-story building along Edgewood Avenue. To pave the way for the project, an application for administrative deviation from certain zoning requirements has been submitted to the City of Jacksonville.
Reduce the minimum lot area from 87,120 feet to 52,272 feet
Reduce the setback on the east property line from 30 feet to 4 fet and reduce the setback on the south property line from 30 feet to eight feet
Reduce the minimum number of off-street parking spaces from 51 to three
Decrease the minimum number of loading spaces from three required to one loading space.

The Silverfield Group intends to acquire Murray Hill’s former Edgewood Theater at the intersection of Edgewood Avenue and Plymouth Street. Silverfield would then demolish the building and redevelop the site to include self storage and retail uses.
Preliminary site plans created by Connelly & Wicker, Inc. indicate that a 4,845-square-foot retail building would be constructed at the intersection of Edgewood Avenue and Plymouth Street. In addition, a three-story, 97,200-square-foot self storage building would be added on an existing surface parking lot at the intersection of Plymouth Street and Nelson Street.
