The Jacksonville Planning Commission recommended approval Sept. 3 for The Julington, a 260-unit apartment community along the east side of San Jose Boulevard about a half-mile north of Julington Creek in Mandarin.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reported that the developer, Rise: A Real Estate Co. from Valdosta, Georgia, applied to the city to amend the land use and rezone 8.98 acres at 12375, 12387 and 12421 San Jose Blvd., across from the HarborChase of Mandarin senior living facility and an office park.

Rise, with Ordinance 2020-0473, seeks a small-scale land use amendment to change from community/general commercial, about 0.39 acres and residential-professional-institutional, about 8.58 acres, to residential-professional-institutional with a site-specific land use policy to allow the proposed apartment use. Companion Ordinance 2020-0474 would rezone the property from commercial office and PUD 2005-0233-E, which approved the former San Jose Car Wash on the 0.39-acre portion of the mostly undeveloped property, to PUD.
