ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. -- Beaches Habitat for Humanity has big plans on the drawing board that include 78 homes being built along Mayport Road.
The organization this week submitted plans to the city of Atlantic Beach detailing what is envisioned for 201 Mayport Road.
"Most of our opportunities have been buying vacant lots and here and there or older homes and fixing them up," said Brian Wheeler with the Genesis Group, which is involved in the permitting process.
The planned development is just east of the flyover that takes traffic to Mayport Road and the Navy base.
The vacant land that was once apartments has been a community eyesore for years. The property is seven acres in size with most of homes envisioned being duplexes or triplex housing.
The permitting process that has just started would put construction starting late next year.
The 78-home complex would be the largest project that Beaches Habitat has done to date.
