A Jacksonville moving company and a Jacksonville developer submitted a preliminary site plan with the city to build Highland Chase, a neighborhood in western Duval County proposed for 458 single-family homes.

The community is planned on 196 acres at southwest Garden Street and Jones Road. Plans show 360 homes on 50-foot lots and 98 on 60-foot lots.

The land is owned by Highland Chase LLC, a subsidiary of The Suddath Companies, a company that specializes in worldwide corporate employee relocations, household moving, warehouse and logistics management and specialized transportation services, according to the firm’s website. 

Suddath is based in Downtown Jacksonville on South Main Street.

The plans submitted to the city’s Development Services Division were signed by James G. Barnett, Suddath’s vice president and treasurer, a member of the firm’s board of directors and a manager of Highland Chase LLC.

The project applicant is GAI Consultants of Jacksonville, off Riverplace Boulevard. The GAI agent representing Highland Chase is W. Scott Land.

Barnett and Land did not respond to requests for comment.
