Residential Sub-division Proposed for 84 Acres of Undeveloped Land on East End of St. John

As the Love City development boom continues, an 84-acre undeveloped tract of land on the eastern-most tip of the island is the latest proposed site for a residential subdivision.

Flamboyant Realty Services Inc. submitted an application for a major Costal Zone Management permit to subdivide parcels 6A-1, 6A-1-1 and 6A-1-2 Estate Hansen Bay number 6, East End Quarter, into at least 31 lots with at least 62 units.

Parcel 6A-1 is planned to be divided into 19 lots, parcel 6A-1-1 into eight lots and parcel 6A-1-2 into four lots, according to the application on record at the Department of Planning and Natural Resources St. John office.

Although Flamboyant Realty, owned by Robert and Karye Carney, submitted the application, the owner of the land is Mark Davies, a resident of Holgate, New Jersey. Robert Carney is listed as having power of attorney for Davies in the application, which was prepared by Jaredian Design Group.

Davies paid Massachusetts-based Privateer Bay Limited Partnership $1 million for a perpetual easement through the established development to the new proposed sub-division.

The new sub-division will be serviced by one central roadway with three spurs to access all of the lots. The road will be 12 feet wide in most areas, with “strategically located 18-foot sections and 13 staggered pull-offs to allow for two way traffic,” according to the application.

The proposed development will also consist of culverts, swales, retaining walls and underground utilities. Construction is expected to last 16 weeks, according to the application.

A CZM public hearing regarding the project will be on Tuesday,  January 16, at 6 p.m. at the Cruz Bay Legislature building.
