Corner Lot Development Group working to build community of 108 townhomes named Bachara.
The company developing Annie’s Walk is planning to build additional townhomes connected to the North Jacksonville community but under a different name.
Corner Lot Development Group of Jacksonville submitted plans to the St. Johns River Water Management District for a community called Bachara with 108 townhouses at southeast Gillespie Avenue and Airport Center Drive, near Interstate 95.
The community would be built directly south of Annie’s Walk, a 103-unit townhome subdivision that the developer sold to AV Homes in May, said Corner Lot Chief Operating Officer George Leone. AV Homes was acquired in late September by another national homebuilder, Taylor Morrison.
Maps included with the submitted site plans show that Bachara would be connected by the same roads in Annie’s Walk, which are called Bachara Way and Annie’s Place.
In addition to being connected to those roads, Bachara also would have an entrance off Gillespie Avenue.
However, Leone said Annie’s Walk and Bachara may be separate communities with the different names since Annie’s Walk already was sold to the homebuilder. He said Corner Lot has not chosen a homebuilder for Bachara or established price ranges.
Annie’s Walk, which was announced in January, is designed to be an affordable neighborhood with prices from $160,000 to $189,000, said Corner Lot CEO Andy Allen.
Most of the units will have three bedrooms and there will be open recreation spaces, but no central amenity.
The engineering consultant for both projects is Connelly & Wicker.
The site plan shows that Annie’s Walk will have the 103 units in 16 buildings, while Bachara will have its 108 units in 14 buildings.
