SH Design Homebuilders are currently building 31 single-family homes in the Avalon development. Avalon is located near the JTB/A1A interchange.

Very nice.

Look forward to Trader Joe's. I didn't realize their stores were so small. It's about a fourth of the size of the Whole Foods in Mandarin.

Maybe MJ should consider doing these Construction Updates quarterly rather than monthly.

Perhaps. However, the number of projects won't change. The largest difference would be visual progress for the reader and there would be new projects we'd learn about later, rather than earlier.

Yeah thats how they keep their prices low. Their success stems from a very small, but excellent, selection of products.

Looks like the Beaches are really poised for growth!
