Housing plans filed for Southside Quarter development by Hines


With permits pending for apartments, Hines’ Southside Quarter development also is in review for single-family homes and condos.

The city issued a concurrency reservation certificate last week for 135 units — 46 single-family homes and 89 condominium units — on 11 acres.

Southside Quarter is under development at southwest Interstate 295 and Butler Boulevard, south of St. Johns Town Center.

Hines, based in Houston, owns the property through S-15 Land Holdings LLC. Founded in 1957, Hines is a privately owned global real estate firm.

The 46 single-family homes are shown along Park Village Drive. The condos, which appear to be townhouses, are shown along I-295 and around the single-family housing. An amenity center is in the middle.

A plan shows the housing site north of the apartments, which Hines is developing. The civil engineer and agent is Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc.

The certificate refers to the project as “DWH Southside Quarters S-15.” S-15 refers to the Hines group that bought the land.

DWH refers to David Weekley Homes, a Houston-based company founded in 1976 that operates in 23 cities.

The builder has history with Hines. For example, Hines announced in 2015 that construction began on the first phase of its 500-acre Asturia mixed-use community in Tampa. The first phase included residential lots for David Weekley Homes and Ashton Woods Homes.

David Weekley Homes also has history in Northeast Florida. Its website shows 19 communities in the area.

Hines and David Weekley Homes did not provide information Monday in response to requests for comment.

Hines announced in February it broke ground on the newly branded Southside Quarter, a 105-acre mixed-use property along Gate Parkway at I-295 and Butler Boulevard.

Some parcels are available for retail, high-density single-family residential, commercial, hotel and office uses.

Hines also released preliminary designs and site plans for the first two 125,000-square-foot Class A build-to-suit office buildings that are available for corporate tenants.

Hines said then that more announcements were pending for the residential and other sites. It set up the site to provide more information.

In early February, Hines submitted building plans to the city for a proposed 306-unit apartment community on 11 acres. That project signaled the first construction at the site.

The $44.2 million construction job features six four-story, 51-unit apartment buildings at 7385 Park Village Drive. It also includes three garage buildings, a clubhouse and other amenities.

Hines paid $20 million in October for the Southside Quarter site. The Duval County Property Appraiser’s Office calculated the size of the purchased site at nearly 69 acres.
