Monday through Friday along the road you will see bulldozers, cranes, cement mixers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, framers, landscapers, and more cars and trucks parked in front of the new luxury homes being built. It is a wonderful sight to see but can be a little tricky driving down the road. When the weekend comes, the bike riders are on the road and enjoying the new sights.
Since January, 2012, twenty six new home building permits were issued. Of those, at least 14 are still under some stage of construction. Eleven are oceanfront homes, eight of which are replacement homes, and three are new construction on vacant lots. The square footage of these new homes ranges from 3850 sq. ft. for a guest house/garage, to a whopping 17,097 sq. ft. oceanfront house. This information was from my research of the St. Johns County Building Permits. This does not include the homes that are undergoing some other form of renovation of which there are quite a few. Also not included are the new demolition permits which have been issued for other homes being torn down for newer replacement homes. This summer, there are three more demolition permits that have been issued since June.
