The first apartment community is under construction in Wildlight.
Raydient Places + Properties said Atlanta-based Varden Capital Properties and Tellus Partners will work with Buckhaven Construction Services to develop a 279-unit apartment complex on 12.7 acres in the town under development in Nassau County.
Apartment amenities include a pool, fitness center, clubhouse and dog park.
The apartments will range from one-bedroom/one-bath units at 662 square feet to three-bedroom/three-bath units at more than 1,300 square feet.
Group 4 Design is the architect and will use the community’s Florida Lowcountry architectural design guidelines.
“Wildlight’s apartments will provide another quality housing option for future residents within the Florida Lowcountry,” said Charles Adams, vice president of community development for Raydient Places + Properties.
The first units are expected to be available to lease in 2019. Final construction completion is planned for 2020. Terms of the land acquisition were not disclosed.
The plan for Wildlight includes a mix of homes, townhomes and rental apartments with businesses, shops and restaurants, a new elementary school and a system of connecting trails and pathways intended to promote a walkable community and healthy lifestyle.
The Phase 1 plan is flexible and designed for about 1,000 homes on about 260 acres. In addition, the community will have about 350 acres of permanently preserved open space.
Wildlight is 20 miles north of Jacksonville just east of Interstate 95 on Florida A1A.
