R.G. Skinner Land Trust
Community Design & Regional Planning
Genesis designed and permitted the first Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) in the City of Jacksonville. The overall project encompasses approximately 350 acres and includes 1,563 dwelling units at a gross residential density of 5 dwelling units per acre. A mix of housing types is provided, including single-family detached units, rowhouse multifamily units, and second story apartments above town center shops.
In addition to residential uses, the approved plan proposed 205,700 SF of retail uses, 245,400 SF of office uses, and 34,300 SF of public and civic uses. Residences, shops, workplaces, and civic buildings are located in close proximity and reinforce the identity of the neighborhood development. The design also incorporates physically defined open spaces in the form of plazas, squares, greens, and parks to provide places for formal social activity and recreation.
