Default South of 466A?

Does anyone know when building will begin south of 466a? We see that the entry gate is now in place. Advantages/Disadvantages to being south?

You may want to read the thread "Open Houses" for some discussion on the topic.

We rode along 466a yesterday and could see restircted entry across from Morse, golf course that appears about ready for the grass to begin, a few building under construction and the infrastructure being developed for what appears to be where a new village will go... but we didn't see any entry gate in place. Where was it?

Default No disadvantages, in my opinion.

Anywhere in TV.

The further south the warmer!

To us, it looked like an entry gate. We did not turn in as we made a left on Buena Vista Blvd. We have put a deposit on a plot in St. James and have a year to build. Just wondering what would be to the right. Thanks!

You know Buena Vista is finished all the way down to 44 where Brownwood will be.

We come in that way from interstate 75.

A disadvantage of being south of 466A is the distance to drive in your golf cart to Spanish Springs town center. I know Brownwood will be south of 466A but it is always fun to visit the other squares.

Thanks. No, we haven't been down there yet. Coming from St. Augustine, do you recommend 75 instead of 301?

For some people this would be a disadvantage, but for others it wouldn't. If you want to go a distance that's further than you want to go in a golf cart, you always have the option of using your auto instead of the golf cart! Each has to chose for themselves if it's a disadvantage or not!

South:
Advantages, well, when they get there, if you want new constuction it'll be the place to go. Likely less overall traffic and quieter. Decent access to the 466A Publix and also to the interstate system/turnpike, if that matters.

Disadvantage, farther to Spanish Springs and the north end.

My wife was off having fun, so Caly and I took a ride out that way last week. Would you believe Caly broke her leash and ran off into the restricted area (bad dog). I had to go find her even though we should not be in there. Once I found her, I figured why not take a few shots for folks not in the area . Not great pictures, but what a beautiful evening in TV!

Thanks, AJ. Nice pictures.
It looks as though those folks will have a better view of sunset than we do in Hemingway.

Nice pictures. Went to an open house the other day. While talking to the salesmen he stated if things keep on pace they'll be selling by August on the South Side.
