Lowe Destination Development Southeast, a subsidiary of the renowned national real estate company Lowe Enterprises, will soon be developing Sawmill Creek, Palm Coast’s premier master-planned community. Sawmill Creek is designed to protect and blend with its unique natural surroundings including Hulett Branch, 138 acres of hardwood wetland preserve that meanders through the middle of the 1,000 acres. In the late 1700’s, Sawmill Creek was the site of a water-powered sawmill that was the primary provider of wood for construction in and around historic St. Augustine.
The community will include approximately 1,350 homes and a wide variety of amenities including a 15,000 square foot residents’ club. Preliminary plans for this facility include a super pool, heated lap pool, spa, fitness center, billiards room, media room, multi-purpose space, internet café and covered entertainment area.
Additionally, residents will have access to the community’s golf practice facilities and 18-hole golf course designed by top PGA TOUR player and area resident Jim Furyk. In keeping with the theme of Sawmill Creek, the golf course will be built in harmony with nature and will be built according to Audubon International Silver Signature Program. The golf clubhouse will feature a tavern/grille with a seating capacity of 150. (click) Resident's Clubhouse
Construction will begin in early 2009, with the first residents moving into Sawmill Creek in 2010. The resident’s club, golf course and clubhouse will also open simultaneously.
The parcel has entitlements for 25,000 square feet of retail space and 25,000 square feet of office space, which will be incorporated into the Village Center at the main entrance to the community. Sawmill Creek will provide a five-acre park site to the City of Palm Coast, complete with fields, playground equipment, access to trails and restroom facilities. A 25-acre school site at the southern end of the property, intended to be used as K-8 school, will be dedicated to the Flagler County School Board, with plans to open its doors in the fall of 2010.
