Last Chance to Exclusively Customize Condominium Space at The Palazzo on St. Johns

The Palazzo Model Living Room

There are few opportunities to own new waterfront condominiums in the heart of Jacksonville’s most popular areas. The Palazzo on St. Johns, a unique new luxury community with unparalleled waterfront and marsh views, has been sought after by buyers who are looking for a peaceful, amenity-filled lifestyle in one of the most convenient parts of the city.

For just a few more weeks, until June 1, buyers who purchase a condominium in Phase 3 or Phase 4 of the community have a unique opportunity to further customize their living space – and to receive a $5,000 bonus to apply towards architectural fees. This allows for such things as combining residences to achieve more square footage and putting a signature stamp on the layout of a residence.

“Our residents in The Palazzo love living in the community, and they often rave about the custom touches in their homes,” said Michael Bugg, Principal, The Condo Group Florida.  “This is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity for our buyers, to be able to customize a home personally before the buildings are completed. I would encourage buyers to come visit our models and talk to us about what they would like to see in their residence.”
