D.R. Horton filed plans for the Rivergate townhomes at 8159 Arlington Expressway, at a roundabout west of Regency Square Mall.
The city and the St. Johns River Management District are reviewing civil engineering plans for the 190-unit townhome development. It received land use and rezoning approvals in August for medium density residential within a planned unit development.
England-Thims & Miller is the civil engineer.

D.R. Horton said Thursday it could not provide more information.
