In an area that most people think of as built out and developed, the parking lots and wooded area owned by the PGA Tour may provide the last, large scale opportunity. In heated discussions, the PGA tour is working for re-zoning and waivers against some popular protest. The PGA tour would like to combine all the parcels into one large 180 acre development. The different parcels do have approval for such projects as commercial use or 684 residential multi-family units (condos or apartments). Most of the disagreement is not about combining the parcels but the waiver of building restrictions such as sign heights and buffers for connecting properties. Further concern are caused by there being no definite plan being made for the final development and non-specific nature of the request.
In the end I believe this would be great for Ponte Vedra Beach if it allowed more restaurants, shopping and other commerce to our area. Something like the St. Johns Town Center comes to mind. We will have to wait and see.
