Townhomes planned to join mix at E-Town

Development along Florida 9B also includes single and multifamily housing communities.

Townhomes also will join E-Town, where two single-family developments and a multifamily project already are planned.

Plans filed with the city show that 97 townhomes are proposed on 12.71 acres along R.G. Skinner Parkway, although no developer was identified.

The city calculated a mobility fee of $159,441 to mitigate traffic impacts.

Eastland Timber LLC, led by Vice President Jed Davis, is the property owner. England-Thims & Miller Inc. is the civil engineer.

 A map shows the townhomes are designed among 13 seven-unit buildings and one six-unit structure at the end of R.G. Skinner Parkway south of Baymeadows Road East and east of Interstate 295. 

R.G. Skinner Parkway will be extended as E-Town Parkway.

Two single-family home communities and a multifamily development already have been identified for the Davis family property planned for residential and commercial uses along I-295 and Florida 9B.

The residential builders bought the land from Eastland Timber LLC, led by Jed Davis.

The PARC Group is developing E-Town on property owned by the Davis family.

The bulk of the land is east of Florida 9B and I-295, while there is some west of Florida 9B.

A St. Johns River Water Management District permit filing shows that the 1,478-acre mixed-use project will include 25.6 acres of commercial property along with much of the developable property dedicated to residential use. 

The first three projects identified are:

• Multifamily residential at 11241 E-Town Parkway. Property owner Eastland Timber LLC seeks a zoning exception for 17.58 acres of vacant land at the address, east of Florida 9B and south of E-Town Parkway. No developer or project details were listed. A site plan shows four apartment buildings, with two on each side of a roundabout.

• David Weekley Homes bought 111.28 acres for $6 million and plans 143 homes to be developed as a joint venture between David Weekley Homes and ICI Homes. They expect models to be under construction before the end of the year.

• Toll Brothers, through Toll Southeast LP Co. Inc., paid almost $4.9 million for property along R.G. Skinner Parkway. The city has determined a mobility fee calculation of $271,399. Records indicate that 113 to 115 homes are planned on 62 acres of a 133-acre site.
