Jacksonville, Florida: Giant Can of 7-UP

Formerly a giant can of Canada Dry Ginger Ale, this 30-foot-tall thirst-quenching goliath changed its brand identity in 2002.
Address:
Bowdendale Ave., Jacksonville, FL
Directions:
Just south of I-95 exit 345, but you can get a better view if you take exit 345, drive west on Bowden Rd, turn left at the first stoplight onto Richard St., drive south until it ends, then turn left onto Bowdendale Ave. and drive until it ends. The can will be off to the right.

Giant Can of 7-UP

You can also see this from I-95. It's right by the road on the righthand side if you're heading southbound.

You must bypass the buildings on the right to have a view which gives a better sense of proportions of the 7-Up storage tank/can. Excellent publicity!

Christina and the can. Giant Can of 7-Up

The local bottler (SEABEV) built the can in 1978. It sits adjacent to I-95 between University Blvd, and Bowden Rd. It stands 62 feet tall and is shaped to the dimensions of a real soda can...only MASSIVE!

The can is actually a water tower that hold 65,000 gallons of water in treatment for the high speed bottling lines located in the production facility on the same site. More than 325,000 gallons of water pass through the can each day to produce soft drink brands like 7up, Canada Dry, Sunkist, A&W, Hawaiian Punch, and Diet Rite for our consumers in Florida and Georgia. The can was repainted in 2003 from Canada Dry to 7up to celebrate the addition of 7up to our beverage portfolio.

I've made a handful of work trips through the area lately and I've been dying to get my photo snapped in front of this roadside oddity.

Giant Can of 7up

I wanted to update the prior information on the giant 7up can. The local bottler (SEABEV) built the can in 1978 and it sits adjacent to I-95 between University Blvd, and Bowden Rd. The can is easily visible to all I-95 traffic. It stands 62 feet tall and is shaped to the dimensions of a real soda can...only GIANT!
