Plans to redevelop a section of the South Jacksonville Presbyterian Church property into the Park Place at San Marco apartments was approved Feb. 25 by City Council.

San Marco-based Corner Lot Development Group, led by Andy Allen, and Birmingham, Alabama-based Harbert Realty Services want to develop the 2.87-acre project at 2137 Hendricks Ave.
