Genesis is the prime consultant for a Traditional Neighborhood Development for Beaches Habitat for Humanity in Atlantic Beach, Florida. Genesis is providing master planning, regulatory approvals, and graphic design services. Upon approval of the development by the City of Atlantic Beach, Genesis will provide civil engineering, detailed landscape architectural services, and construction administration.

Habitat for Humanity Site Plan - Mayport Road

The site comprises 7.2 acres and is located in the south central portion of the City of Atlantic Beach (COAB) on the east side of Mayport Road (SR A1A), south of Cornell Lane. The applicant, Beaches Habitat, is seeking to rezone the property from Commercial – Limited (CL) and Residential, General, Multi-Family (RG-M) to the Special Planned Area (SPA) zoning district in order to create a Traditional Neighborhood Community.

201 Mayport Road will be a maximum 80-unit residential development, providing a mix of housing opportunities to include single-family units, duplex, triplex and quadplex buildings in which units will be sold fee simple. Amenities include scenic corridor landscaping, a community park and common open space. The homes will be arranged in a Traditional Neighborhood Design with rear lane/alley access and buildings fronting on the scenic corridor or the main loop road with the community park. All homes will feature front porches and sidewalks that lead through the neighborhood and Mayport Road, creating a walkable community.
