Yet another behemoth industrial building will soon be added to Jacksonville’s Northside.

Construction will soon begin on a structural steel building that will cover 202,800 square feet at 1511 Zoo Parkway, according to permits approved this month by city building inspectors. The owner is VTRE Development, better known as VanTrust Real Estate.

The $14.5 million "Imeson 200" project will be part of Imeson Park South and one of a number of buildings at the site. At least two more are set for permit approval.
