Plans show the 280-unit project will be built on the former Masterfit Golf site.
England-Thims & Miller Inc. filed civil engineering plans with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the city for Stanmore Wells Creek.
The proposed 280-unit apartment development is along the east side of Philips Highway and north of Wells Creek Parkway.
Houston-based real estate investment trust Stanmore Partners LLC, through Jax Philips Hwy Apts LLC, amended the land use designation and rezoned the property to commercial residential office in September to develop the apartment community.
The 19.13-acre property, currently unused, contained the Masterfit Golf Teaching and Fitting Academy.
The property, at 11723 Wells Creek Parkway, is 1.3 miles south of the Florida 9B interchange along Philips Highway in Southeast Jacksonville.
The area has been transitioning from agricultural to residential and commercial uses with the emergence of the Bartram Springs, Nocatee and Wells Creek subdivisions.
Plans show two apartment buildings and a clubhouse and fitness center with access from Philips Highway and Wells Creek Parkway.
Plans indicate 148 one-bedroom, 112 two-bedroom and 20 three-bedroom units with 467 parking spaces.
Stanmore Partners has developed 40 properties comprising more than 12,000 units exceeding 10 million square feet. Stanmore and Hoar Construction created an integrated development and construction management partnership.
Stanmore developed the Ravella at Town Center, a 306-unit Class A apartment community in The Strand at Town Center.
A representative of Stanmore Partners was unavailable for comment.
