A Jacksonville-based land developer submitted plans Thursday for Anabelle Island, a proposed subdivision of 773 single-family homes in Clay County.
Curtis Hart, owner of Hart Resources LLC, intends to develop the community on about 364 acres southwest of Sandridge and Russell roads between Asbury Lake and Fleming Island.
Hart said the project was initiated about 2006, then placed on hold because of the recession. The property was sold in 2012 to Triple B Ranch LLC, led by William Block.
Plans for the subdivision, southwest of Black Creek, were submitted to the St. Johns River Water Management District requesting an environmental resources permit. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Clay County Development Review Committee permit and review have been completed.
The property is within the Lake Asbury Master Plan Area of Clay County, which requires a variety of lot sizes. Hart said the lots will range from 60 to 100 feet wide. Hart plans to sell the lots to homebuilders.
Hart said the property’s existing $2 million lodge on a lake will be converted into an amenity center.
He anticipates construction will begin in the first quarter of 2020.
The project civil engineer is Jacksonville-based North Florida Engineering Services Inc.
