Liberty Square will offer 276 homes starting at $210,000.
A neighborhood of 276 homes will soon be under development near Cecil Commerce Center.
Liberty Square Jacksonville LLC has received a renewal of its mobility certificate of $638,012 to develop Liberty Square northwest of West Meadows Drive North and Chaffee Road South.
Greg Matovina, principal of Matovina & Company, is the manager of the development entity.
Lots will be a mix of 50 and 75 feet wide. Builders will be Dream Finders Homes, New Atlantic Builders and Advantage Home Builders.
Matovina said he expects prices to start around $210,000 and exceed $300,000.
The engineer is J. Lucas and Associates. The development subcontractor is Petticoat-Schmitt Civil Contractors. The entire development comprises 108.2 acres.
The neighborhood will be near the new Amazon facility and other businesses.
“This development is what I would characterize as a ‘brand new area,’ and the reason I call it that is because it is on a brand new connection that runs from Cecil Commerce Center Parkway north of Normandy Boulevard over to Chaffee Road,” said Matovina.
“The main road when you come off Normandy is New World Avenue, which used to dead end a little way past the Amazon facility. The city is now extending it and it will be open shortly to connect to Chaffee Road. We are located in that area,” he said.
Primary entrances will be off New World Avenue, which will border the northern side of the neighborhood.
The first phase is planned to include 115 lots. Infrastructure is expected to be completed in February and model homes opened by midsummer.
