Luxor Club apartments approved by the city

Luxor Club apartments in Flagler Center in South Jacksonville received city approval. Abe Fort, director of development for project owner Fort Family Investments, said in December that clearing had begun toward construction of the 464 apartments and the first should be ready in January 2019.

Permits show a construction cost of almost $34.6 million for the 25 apartment buildings on 39.82 acres at 13800 Egrets Nest Drive. Flagler Center is south of Old St. Augustine Road between Philips Highway and Interstate 95. It is just north of St. Johns County.

 Fort said Luxor Club will comprise one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units.

He said there will be 15 three-story buildings of 28 units; two three-story buildings of 18 units; and eight two-story carriage houses in which the first floor comprises four garage spaces and the top floor is a single two-bedroom, 2½-bath apartment.

In the carriage houses, one of the garage spaces will be dedicated to the upstairs tenant and the other three will be leased to other apartment renters. Those total 24 garage spaces.

There also will be 60 garage spaces — four each — on the ground floor of the 15 larger apartment buildings.

There will be a clubhouse, pool pavilion, tennis court, playground, lawn, dog park and pool, pet spa, bike storage facility, car care center and other amenities.

Wells Creek receives mobility fee certificate

The developer of a residential neighborhood off Philips Highway in southern Duval County has received its mobility fee calculation certificate from the city.

Mattamy Homes will pay $325,629 to mitigate the traffic impact of the first phase of Wells Creek, which will comprise 140 single-family homes on 142.2 acres just south of Florida 9B and north of Racetrack Road.
