Construction of San Marco luxury apartments to begin by year’s end

Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year on The Hendricks at San Marco — a 133-unit luxury apartment project in historic San Marco.

The $31 million project includes a four-story apartment building, three-level parking garage and amenities such as a fitness center, clubhouse and a resort-style swimming pool, William “Bill” Ware, vice president for development services at Harbert Realty Services, stated.

The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023, Ware said.

Going up at 1520 Alford Place, the apartment complex will be next door to South Jacksonville Presbyterian Church — a landmark since 1939 at Hendricks Avenue and San Marco Boulevard.

The church sanctuary and steeple at 2137 Hendricks Ave., will remain intact as the building will continue serving as the worship center.

The former fellowship hall and education building and three smaller structures are being demolished. The church previously sold that 2.09-acre tract to help pay for mounting maintenance costs.

“Demolition is almost complete. Construction will commence immediately thereafter,” Ware said.

As planned, there will be 104 one-bedroom, 22 two-bedroom and seven studio apartments.

Single and married professionals, as well as empty-nesters, are the target audience for the upscale apartments, he said.

In general, Ware said the price range will be $1,500 to $2,500 a month, depending on the size of the unit.
