D.R. Horton proposes to build an additional 577 single-family homes and an amenity center as part of the second phase of the Cross Creek subdivision in Clay County.

In the first phase, the homebuilder is constructing 421 homes, which are slated to be available for sale this month. The additional sites boost Cross Creek to 998 lots.

Cross Creek is on 970 acres next to Russell Baptist Church in Green Cove Springs, west of the intersection of Sandridge and Russell roads.

The company submitted its second phase and amenity center plans in December to the St. Johns River Water Management District.

D.R. Horton received approval in October 2016 to build the first phase, which comprises 421 homes on 246 acres.

The second phase proposes to place 577 lots on 340 acres to the southeast of the first phase.

The 998 homes offer four widths: 103 40-foot lots; 500 50-foot lots; 205 60-foot lots; and 190 70-foot lots.

Amenity center plans show a 3,400-square-foot pool with zero entry, a separate splash pad, a 2,400-square-foot clubhouse, a tot lot, two shade structures, a volleyball court and two pickleball courts.

Marissa Awtry, the media relations manager for D.R. Horton, said homes are expected to start around $190,000 but pricing has not been finalized.

Documents released as part of the Cross Creek North Community Development District show that infrastructure costs are estimated at $29.8 million, which is charged to homeowners via a master special assessment. Each property owner would pay an estimated $29,935, according to the community development district documents.

Awtry said D.R. Horton plans to build additional phases of Cross Creek over the next several years, but didn't provide details.
