The developer of Wildlight has made an application with the St/ Johns River Water Management District for a new portion of the first phase of the new “town” it is building in Nassau County.

Raydient Places + Properties has submitted plans for Phases 1C-1 and IC-2 of the master-planned community to build 257 homes, 44 of them townhomes. Connelly & Wicker is the engineer.

Phase 1 of Wildlight includes 1,000 homes and 500,000 square feet of restaurants and shopping on about 261 acres plus nearly 350 acres of preserve.

In all, Wildlight is planned for 3,000 homes and millions of square feet of commercial development on 2,900 acres.

“Phases 1C-1 and 1C-2 are still part of Phase 1 of Wildlight,” said Charles Adams, vice president of community development for Raydient Places + Properties.

“The first lots we built were around Wildlight Village. As development progresses, we are starting to build lots on Phases 1C-1 and 1C-2, which is essentially the area around Wildlight Elementary School,” he said.

“Phase I of Wildlight is projected to offer a variety of homes ranging in price from $195,000-$400,000. To date, Dream Finders Homes and D.S. Ware are the residential builders for Wildlight,” Adams said.

Wildlight recently opened its “StoryCenter,” which serves as the welcome center providing information about the development.

Construction has begun on the first model home by D.S. Ware. 

Anticipated home prices in Phase 1 will be $175,000 to $400,000.

Just east of Interstate 95 on Florida A1A, 20 miles north of Jacksonville, Wildlight includes a mix of homes, townhomes and rental apartments with shops and restaurants, a new elementary school and a system of trails and pathways intended to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
