It appears the Florida developer angling for the right to lead the revitalization of the former downtown mall site may have billed itself as “the one-stop provider of mobile and manufactured homes” in its hometown of Jacksonsville.
“At Heritage Financial Group we are reliable and committed to serving all of your mobile and manufactured home dealer needs,” a mobile home dealers’ website says.
“We strive to offer a high level of service and quality in everything we do,” the advertisement-type website proclaims.
It is not clear if the developer and the mobile home dealer have anything to do with one another. The Jacksonville, Fla.-based Heritage Financial Group, which hopes to win the right to develop the 17-acre former mall site, was the only developer to submit a plan Friday to the Bristol Downtown Development Corp., which aims to choose a firm to lead the revitalization effort by the end of July.
Its conceptual plan includes about 600,000-square-feet of new office, retail space and housing. It also calls for construction of a train station, a dog park, a skating rink, a movie theater and much more.
Another update: The Paradise Valley Mobile Home Community in Jacksonville, Fla. is owned by an Indiana company that has nothing to do with Heritage Financial Group, according to the assessor's records in Duval County, Fla. online here
