The townhouses in East San Marco are set to lay the foundation stone this year Jax Daily Record | Jacksonville Daily Record
Steve Merten, president of the Toll Brothers Division, said the company plans to lay the foundation for its townhouse project in East San Marco by mid-2021.
Toll Brothers submitted plans to the city on February 9 for a 27-unit parish one block east of the East San Marco mall development anchored by Publix Super Markets Inc. He didn’t say when the project would be completed.
The plans show five townhouse buildings, consisting of four with six units each and one with three.
The 1.03 acre property is bordered by Atlantic Boulevard, Arcadia Place, Alford Place and Minerva Avenue.
“San Marco is one of the top locations in northeast Florida and Jacksonville,” Merten said in an email.
“We felt that our brand (and townhouse design) would complement San Marco by building luxurious townhouses with a low maintenance lifestyle that are within walking distance of St. Mark’s Square, where residents enjoy all the amenities and activities in the area can.”
Toll Brothers build luxury homes and townhouses in 24 states. In northeast Florida, it has opened or developed communities in eTown, Julington Creek, Nocatee, Bartram, Durbin, St. Augustine, and Ponte Vedra.
Four of the 17 developments listed on its website are townhouse projects.
“This development is a real infill development,” said Merten. “We don’t build apartments and we felt that townhouses (low-maintenance and new architecture) were the most suitable product for the region.”
Merten said the price point had not been set. The other townhouse communities in eTown or Nocatee start in the middle of $ 300,000.
With Toll Brothers, buyers can customize their homes in their design studio, Merten said.
The builder’s homes are usually suitable for secondary buyers or customers, he said.
Merten said Toll Brothers homes and townhouses have been selling well thanks to low interest rates and the relocation of remote workers to Florida.
“We’re seeing buyers come to Jacksonville from all over the nation,” he said.
