The Jacksonville Business Journal reported July 22 that Hallmark Partners has begun work on Beacon Riverside, a 15-story luxury waterfront condominium tower near The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Riverside.

The residences will range in size from 2,400 to 5,000 square feet, with prices starting in the upper $700,000s, the newspaper said.

The homes will feature amenities, such as 10-foot ceilings, spacious terraces, full-time concierge service, property management and maintenance, and private dual elevators.

Construction is slated to be completed in spring 2016.

The Jacksonville Business Journal also reported July 22 on another development milestone – Nocatee in St. Johns County is adding two new neighborhoods to meet growing demand in the community.

Nocatee announced the additions of Addison Park and Cypress Trails neighborhoods at Nocatee – which was named the third best-selling master-planned community by real estate advisory firm NCLCO.

Home builders David Weekley and Providence Homes will construct single-family residences priced from the low $200,000s in Addison Park. Lennar Homes and Mattamy Homes will be the builders of homes priced from the low $200,000s in Cypress Trails, according to the newspaper article.
