Rendering of a new home at Cottages at Jax Beach
A rendering of one of the six new homes offered in Cottages at Jax Beach.

Here’s some noteworthy new development happening just a block from the ocean in Jacksonville Beach. It’s called The Cottages at Jax Beach, and it’s a cozy little 6-home enclave just north of Atlantic Blvd, off at 9th Avenue North, between Third Street and the ocean. It’s kind of a rare thing, a departure from the older resales, and condominiums that proliferate the area. 


Why do I need a realtor to help me buy a home from a builder?
There comes a time where you just have to set the record straight. We love builders. Builders love us. We bring them lots of business.


Pulte is pre-selling the new Bayberry Townhomes in Bartram Park
Pulte commands a lot of ground in Bartram Park, with sold out communities like Greenbriar, which has been a huge hit with townhome buyers. 
They've got new townhomes pre-selling in the Bayberry community, just down the boulevard. Townhomes range form 1,440 to 1,514 square feet, from $159,990 to $170,990. They're three bedrooms, two and a half baths, the community is gated, and Pulte will surely have a lot of incentives right from the start.

They’re floating an urban park design concept with the streetscapes, porches and winding sidewalks you might see in San Marco or Riverside.

The great thing about living in Riverside, (just one of the great things), is that you can make it whatever experience you want it to be: quiet, bustling, noisy, tranquil, family, single, whatever. Nightlifers or homebodies all have great reasons to call Riverside their home. Beacon Riverside is just one new addition to the this recipe for great Jacksonville living.
Beacon Riverside is a luxury high rise being developed by Hallmark Partners Inc. Plans are to build the 16-story luxury condominium tower in the heart of Riverside at 500 Bishopgate Lane near the Cummer Gallery.  It's just a few blocks from the super popular Five Points shopping, dining and drinking district, now sporting a brand new Hawker's Asian Street Fare restaurant. Beacon Riverside will top out at 14 floors above two levels of parking and contain 55 units, most of which will range from 2,200 to 3,900 square feet. Four larger units will be situated on the 14th and 15th floors — two units per floor, 4,500 square feet each. The grand penthouse on the 16th floor will be 7,500 square feet. Hallmark is targeting empty nesters who are looking to downsize and move to an urban environment.
