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.

5. Durbin Creek National, LLC. (Bass Pro Shops)

At maximum, Gate Petroleum's 1,624-acre Durbin Creek National project is expected to result in 2.8 million square feet of office space, 2.3 million square feet of entertainment and retail space, 350 hotel rooms and 999 multi-family residential units over a 20-year development period. Bass Pro Shops is one major tenant already announced for this development. The national chain plans to open a 104,000-square-foot Outdoor World west of I-95, SR 9B on 40 acres, south of Race Track Road. It will include a 14-acre lake that would be managed for trophy bass and youth and community events.
