JX Properties Land behind Future Walmart Site Will Sell at Foreclosure Auction

The 507.8-acre tract was purchased in 2003 for $7 million. BankAtlantic foreclosed last September. The foreclosure auction is scheduled for August 3rd.

Palm Coast, FL – July 10, 2011[UPDATED] JX Properties’ 507.8-acre DRI (Development of Regional Impact) tract located behind the future Walmart on Old Kings Road is scheduled to be sold at a foreclosure auction August 3rd. A Lis Pendens was filed with the Flagler Clerk of Courts office on Sept. 2, 2010 by BankAtlantic, which holds a $7, 070,000 mortgage on the property.
The lender took posession of the property at the August 3, 2011 foreclosure sale.
JX Properties paid Wisne Land LLC $7,000,000 for the three contiguous parcels that make up the tract in December 2003. Subsequently, a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) and a Development Order were approved for a mixed-use neo-traditional neighborhood community. The tract fronts SR 100, running north behind the planned new Walmart location. As planned, a four lane spine road would dissect the development, running from SR 100 to Old Kings Road where it will align with Town Center Blvd. adjacent to the Lehigh Trail. There is a large lake on the property easily visible from SR 100. The property lies within the boundary of the SR100 CRA, which also includes Town Center and property along Old Kings Road.

JX Properties is not BankAtlantic’s only high-value foreclosure sale this year in Palm Coast. The bank initiated foreclosure proceedings against Whitehall Homes at Grand Haven in May 2010. BankAtlantic loaned Whitehall $6,400,000 in 2004 to develop a 96-unit condominium project adjacent to the Grand Haven Golf Course and clubhouse. Whitehall completed development of Phase I of the Riverview Condominiums; four buildings with 12 units each. Construction began in 2007 on two of four units in Phase II, but Whitehall soon abandoned the project, leaving two partially completed buildings on the site. The unfinished project was purchased at a foreclosure sale in April by Ft. Lauderdale-based Heartwood Partners 3 LLC.

    5. The successful high bidder must pay a deposit equal to at least 5% of the final bid at the time of the sale. The deposit must be in the form of cash or certified/cashier’s check per Florida Statutes 45.031. The deposit will be applied to the sale price at the time of payment.

Payments may be made in the form of cash, certified/cashier’s check or wire transfer. All checks should be made payable to the Flagler County Clerk of Court. If final payment is not received by 4:00 p.m., the same day as the sale, the Clerk of Court will re-advertise the sale and pay all cost of the sale from the deposit. Any remaining funds shall be applied toward the judgment. Please note: Doc Stamps are to be paid by a separate payment. (See #7)

    9. The Clerk can issue a Certificate of Title after a 10-day waiting period if no objection to the sale is filed. In order to have the property transferred into your name, you must be able to complete & provide all documents necessary to accomplish this. You or your attorney are responsible for preparing a Certificate of Sale and Certificate of Title to be filed with the Clerk. The Clerk’s office does not prepare or complete any missing information on these forms.

    10.
