The Floridant/10105883

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Floridant -- The Skinner family joined two highly regarded home builders, ICI Homes and David Weekley Homes, and City of Jacksonville leaders to celebrate the groundbreaking of Seven Pines, a new master-planned community in Jacksonville's Southside near the St. Johns Town Center and just south of the University of North Florida.

"The groundbreaking is an important milestone for the Seven Pines community," said Mori Hosseini, Chairman/CEO of ICI Homes and the managing partner of the Seven Pines partnership. "Our new Southside Jacksonville development is one of the most notable new projects in Northeast Florida, and we are thrilled construction of our brand new master-planned community is underway."

Seven Pines is located at the southeast quadrant of the I-295/Butler Boulevard interchange on the southern extension of Kernan Boulevard south of Butler Boulevard. The name, Seven Pines, pays tribute to the seven Skinner brothers who have a long and deeply rich family history with the property and the city of Jacksonville.

"While the location speaks for itself, we are enthusiastic about the plans for Seven Pines, which we believe will create a unique experience for our future residents and a lasting legacy to the Skinner family," said David Weekley, Chairman of David Weekley Homes. "The community design will bring Seven Pines residents closer to nature while creating a strong sense of community."

The property is the last large parcel of land owned by the Skinner family's original holdings, which included the St. Johns Town Center and the University of North Florida, and will be designed and developed consistent with the family's vision. Once completed, Seven Pines will include approximately 1,600 single-family homes, apartments and more than a million square feet of commercial and retail space.

Seven Pines will have distinctive new home designs in walkable neighborhoods, a vibrant village center, plus parks, trails, lakes and green spaces. Plans for the community include a 34-acre Central Park with a lake and a variety of architectural styles and home sizes in interconnected neighborhoods, built by both ICI Homes and David Weekley Homes.

Central Park will showcase the spirit of Seven Pines, creating a vital community destination accessible by all interior roadways. Two miles of multi-purpose trails will circle the lake, with other trails and sidewalks throughout the community connecting the residential neighborhoods and amenities. There will be markers within the community honoring and paying tribute to the Skinner family heritage.
