Stretching into northern St. Johns County, in three years, Jacksonville's fourth interstate highway will open to traffic, spurring additional development in what is already one of the fastest growing areas in the state. Here's a look at five major developments that will benefit from the accessibility this highway will offer.
1. Davis/9B Parcel
The first phase of SR 9B opened a few months ago and a major project connected to this stretch of highway is already underway. The PARC Group is constructing and extension of R.G. Skinner Parkway and building a new interchange on SR 9B. Making 839-acres accessible, this project allows for the development of two single-family residential subdivisions. Eventually, the roadway will serve as much as 800,000-square feet of warehouse space, 1,500 single family residential units, 1,600 multi family residential units, 350 hotel rooms, a 10-acre park, 320,000 square feet of office space and 1,070,000 square feet of commercial uses.
