Nocatee already has a water slide, lagoon pool and a slow-moving lazy river — all of which you can see from a 330-foot zip line that soars above.

Now developers are adding a four-story spray playground, where party-goers will be sprayed with water while sliding, climbing and playing, according to a news release.

The facility also will feature a large deck, food court and park.

The PARC Group, developers of Nocatee, says the playground is the first of its kind in Northeast Florida. Construction will begin in the summer and is expected to open in summer 2018.

The playground will be between the community park and swim club, on the western side of Crosswater Parkway.

LandSouth starting work on Broxton Bay

LandSouth Construction has begun work on Broxton Bay, a 324-unit apartment complex on the Northside.

The $32 million project will have five floor plans in one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes that range from 833 to 1,400 square feet, according to a news release.

They will include stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

Amenities include a pool, recreation room, fitness center and cabana area with a fire pit and gas grills.

There also will be nature trails along lake shorelines and conservation areas on the 34-acre site.

RCM Acquisitions of Atlantic Beach is the developer and Forum Architecture and Interior Design of Altamonte Springs is the architect.

“The developer has a philosophy of tailoring its multifamily communities to each property’s distinctive location and Broxton Bay will be no different. It will feature thoughtfully designed lifestyle amenities, floor plan options that will mirror solid construction and quality finishes,” said Joe Passkiewicz, senior vice president of development for LandSouth Construction.

Record fundraising for fifth clay shoot

The fifth annual Clays for a Cause raised $53,000 — more than in the previous four years combined — to benefit St. Augustine Youth Services and Seamark Ranch.

More than 200 people took part in the clay shoot presented by MasterCraft Builder Group.

In its first four years, the event brought in a total of $50,000. This year’s $53,000 total far exceeded the goal of $25,000, according to a news release.

The event started as a small holiday party to thank the company’s trade partners, vendors and consultants after MasterCraft’s first year in business.

“There were only six of us at MasterCraft so we decided to have a fun day of shooting clays with everyone instead of having a company holiday party,” said MasterCraft Builder Group Partner Chris Shee.

The company paid for lunch and the shoot in exchange for a $50 donation. The charitable event has grown exponentially since then.
