A resort hotel bearing the Margaritaville brand may be coming to Jacksonville Beach. The city’s planning and development department is reviewing the proposed eight-story, 211-room hotel.
The Margaritaville hotel would have an internal parking garage and a ground-floor restaurant and would connect with an oceanfront boardwalk.
An Ormond Beach-based developer, Manoj Bhoola of MSB Hotels IVV, LLC, wants to build the hotel on a vacant lot along the ocean between 6th Avenue North and 7th Avenue North in Jacksonville Beach. No timetable for construction has been announced.
City planning director Bill Mann said the proposed Margaritaville resort would be “a great addition to our downtown area,” according WJXT-Channel 4 in Jacksonville.
Mann also said the developer would need a building permit from the city and a coastal construction permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. [News4Jax.com] — Mike Seemuth
