The Jacksonville Daily Record reports that Captain Sandy purchased a 7,600-square-foot commercial building on June 7 for $185,000, news that she confirmed herself in a recent Tweet. "SOLD!  Working on the details and plans for my new project in JAX," she wrote in the post. "Need a name for the restaurant & rooftop bar."

While her followers offered plenty of suggestions, she hasn't yet committed to a name. However, she told News4Jax that she is considering "The Chambers" for the second floor. 

Captain Sandy recently opened up to about her specific plans to turn the former firehouse into a restaurant.  “There’s going to be three (floors): the rooftop lounge, the second floor, which will be a private club," she said. "And then the first floor, which will be an open restaurant.” 

In a Facebook post, Captain Sandy explained her choice of location for her latest venture. "Downtown Jacksonville is becoming a Superyacht destination! The history here is rich with a vibrant culture. I am personally invested in this city. My sister created her school for children with autism and has not stopped!" she wrote. "I hope you plan a trip to Jacksonville and discover the beautiful waterways and culture that this vibrant city has to offer. I just bought a 106 year old firehouse downtown to convert into a restaurant with a rooftop lounge. Now the journey begins!"
