BBX Capital breaks ground on Beacon Lake


BBX Capital Real Estate recently celebrated the groundbreaking of Beacon Lake, a new community in northern St. Johns County consisting of 1,280 single-family homes and 196 townhomes spread over approximately 630 acres.

“We are thrilled to introduce Beacon Lake to Northeast Florida,” said Bruce J. Parker, managing director of BBX Capital Real Estate. “BBX Capital Real Estate’s goal is dedicated to developing outstanding communities with exceptional quality homes and world-class amenities.”

Located on the south side of County Road 210 between U.S. Route 1 and Interstate 95, the community’s centerpiece is the 43-acre Beacon Lake, which will feature a clubhouse overlooking the water, a crew house and a launch area. Additional features of the community will include a junior Olympic-size pool; a splash park and fun pool; tennis courts and play fields; a fitness center offering aerobics and spinning, free weights and a yoga studio; and a dog park.

Beacon Lake’s builder team is anticipated to include Dream Finders Homes and ICI Homes. They plan to offer a variety of home designs showcasing a coastal vernacular architectural style. Single-family homes and townhomes are estimated to range from 1,800 square feet to 4,000 square feet and priced from the high $200,000s to the $500,000s.

Construction of the Beacon Lake amenity center and model homes, which are zoned for the St. Johns County Public School District, is currently scheduled to begin in 2017.
