When the pros are making the turn for the second nine at the Country Club of Jackson some people will be sitting pretty.
Not any of the players in the Sanderson Farms Championship. The residents of 10 St. Andrews Place.
They will be in the catbird seat, if you will, ensconced in the luxury condominiums of the eight-floor building overlooking the 10th fairway.
The condos will go on sale toward the end of April.
There will be 30 of them, ranging from roughly $1 million to $2 million each, according to Bob Malouf, who is a principal, along with Tommy Couch, in Azalea Development LLC.
But first, 26 of them must be sold before the project can move forward, Malouf said in an interview.
Malouf expressed confidence that sales would be brisk, and said a number of inquiries have already been made, though he declined to reveal how many.
About a month after that threshold is crossed, construction will begin, perhaps starting in the fall and taking 16 to 18 months, said Malouf, a longtime attorney in metro Jackson.
That would put the completion date sometime in 2023, he figures.
Co-general contractors for the project are Probity Contracting Group and Alliant Construction LLC.
The project will be located on about 1.5 acres of the 6.5-acre maintenance shop area.
Each condominium will have a balcony overlooking the 10th fairway.
There will be a mix of sizes, ranging from two to four bedrooms.
Each unit will have private elevator access, with a code that allows entrance only into that residence.
Inside, décor by Nancy Price Interiors and appliances by Wolf and Sub-Zero will welcome residents and guests.
“These are designed to be luxury residences, and not merely apartments,” Malouf said.
The building was designed by Richard McNeel of JBHM Architecture.
McNeel said in an interview that Malouf had a vision for the project.
McNeel said that the architecture of St. Andrew is designed to fit into the country club campus, whose style he called “contemporary Polynesian.”
The design of the building is forward-looking, McNeel said.
For example the parking spaces – located on the first two floors, below the five residence floors – for each unit will accommodate two autos and a golf cart, which can be recharged there, along with the autos if they happen to be electric, McNeel said.
The existing buildings reflect the mid-1960s, when they were built.
McNeel said that the only possible comparable property in Jackson is 1 Barrington Square at 1200 Meadowbrook Rd. in the Fondren area.
In St. Andrew Place, there will be a combination library and bridge room, he said, in addition to a “cardio room.”
On the eighth floor, the roof, there will be a 2,200-square-foot heated and cooled venue for a bar and dining area with a deck.
The largest units are about 4,100 square feet, which includes about 600 square feet of balcony.
All will overlook the serene fairways and greens of the course.
