The St. Johns Town Center is an upscale super-regional open-air mall in southeast Jacksonville, Florida. It opened its doors on March 18, 2005 with over 100 stores, many of which were new to the Jacksonville market at the time.[1] The 200-acre (0.81 km2) mall is located at the intersection of J. Turner Butler Boulevard and the Interstate 295 East Beltway. Key tenants are Anthropologie, Apple, Microsoft Store, Nordstrom, Dillard's, Williams-Sonoma, Lucky Brand Jeans, bebe, P.F. Chang's, Maggiano's Little Italy and The Cheesecake Factory. It is one mile away from the University of North Florida.

Expansion[edit]

228,000 sq ft (21,200 m2) was opened to the public October 26, 2007. It consists of about 40 retailers and 4 restaurants. Some of the tenants of this expansion include Abercrombie kids, Aldo, Barnes & Noble, Betsey Johnson, Brooks Brothers, Clarks, Coach, GUESS, Juicy Couture, Lacoste, Louis Vuitton, MAC Cosmetics, Pottery Barn, Swarovski, Talbots, Tommy Bahama, Urban Outfitters, and West Elm. In 2008 True Religion, Cole Haan, Kate Spade, The Capital Grille, J. Alexander's and Mitchell's Fish Market were opened.[2]

On November 23, 2015 Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed at the St. Johns Town Center for the grand opening of the Microsoft Store.[3] In October 2014 Nordstrom opened its first store in Northeast Florida at the St. Johns Town Center.[4]

Luxury condominiums were established in 2006 behind the St. Johns Town Center as part of further expansion. Additional apartments were also built since the center opened.

Thanks to the center's success, additional retail complexes in its adjacent vicinity have been constructed since its opening, with several others under development as of 2016, as well as a TopGolf facility. In addition, home furnishings retailer IKEA announced plans to open a store less than one mile from the center by the third quarter of 2017.
