3 St. Johns Housing Projects Planned


Mattson, Marcia, The Florida Times Union


Two more developers want to add three more housing developments

to northwest St. Johns County.

"With the World Golf Village opening up and all the employment

opening up, there's a need for housing and services down there,"

said Edward McCue, who represents Cordele Builders.

Cordele plans to put housing and commercial buildings on 152

acres it owns south of International Golf Parkway and west of

Interstate 95.

The company has not determined how many homes it would want to

build, McCue said.

Also, Atlantic Gulf Communities is planning two developments

totaling about 3,500 to 4,000 housing units and commercial

buildings and recreation facilities on 3,200 acres.

Plans are preliminary, said Tom Gillette, senior vice

president.

Most of the land eyed for the three developments would have to

All three have applied to the St. Johns River Water Management

District to establish wetlands boundaries within the properties

-- an initial step toward getting approval to develop.

The most recent applications bring to eight the number of

potential projects that applied in recent months for wetlands

determinations or other water-related requirements.

document it expects to start planning a housing development

within a year on 4,300 acres it owns along the St. Johns River,

south of Fruit Cove.

The various projects would fill much of the vacant land south

of Julington Creek Plantation, a massive community with about

1,000 houses that could grow to 4,150.

County Planning Director Scott Clem sees the push southward from

Jacksonville's Mandarin area, along with the strong economy and

low interest rates, as fueling the flurry of plans.

"The timing is pretty amazing, with the amount of development

interest in the county," Clem said. "I think a lot of things are

just coming to a head right now."

And land is available for sale in the northwest, Atlantic

Gulf's Gillette said, noting land south of Butler Boulevard in

the northeast is not being sold.

One of the Atlantic Gulf developments likely would have 1,500

housing units on 1,300 acres. …
