“Excitement Grows North” with $16 Million Apartment Development on Duval Station Road in Jacksonville
April 9, 2018
“Excitement Grows North” with new apartments breaking ground on Duval Station Road in North Jacksonville. The apartment community is called Duval Station Landing, and is being developed by Dan and Patty Griffin, a husband and wife development team known as First Coast Land Development, Inc. They’ve been building in North Jacksonville since the 1990’s and know the area well:
“We began our development campaign in the Rivercity/Oceanway neighborhood of Jacksonville back in the 1990’s with mobile homes, then commercial in 2003, and multifamily. New developments in the area were scarce at this time and many were skeptical on whether we would be successful in leasing out the properties we developed. This really started a new era of development for the area, and demand has continued to grow for residential and commercial developments on the Northside of Jacksonville with retail and employers coming in such as Amazon and the UF Medical Center. The Duval Station area in particular is one of only a few busy areas left in Jacksonville that hasn’t already seen a lot of new multifamily development.”
Summit was awarded a $12 million contract to build Duval Station Landing, and the project as a whole is a $16 million development. It will be a total of 104 apartments in 5 buildings, spacious one and two bedroom floor plans and resort-style amenities that include a swimming pool, club house, fitness center, dog wash, car wash, business office, conference room, coffee bar, and mail kiosk. The total square footage is 128,126.
A Groundbreaking Ceremony will be held on Friday, April 6th, and construction is planned to be complete in Summer 2019. The architect is PQH Group Design, Inc., and Summit Contracting Group, Inc. is the General Contractor.
