Chamber’s Economic Development Breakfast keynote topic focuses on Nocatee


Maurice “Mo” Rudolph discussed the impact the Nocatee community has had upon St. Johns County and the Northeast Florida region at a St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Council meeting Jan. 31.

Addressing a full ballroom at the Renaissance Resort at the World Golf Village, Rudolph shared his insights relating to the continued success of the Nocatee community and development throughout St. Johns County. The fourth best-selling community for the last decade, Nocatee has become a competitor in the national home market, Rudolph said. He contributed Nocatee’s success to a strong collaboration between St. Johns County government, local builders, real estate agents, financial institutions and other related businesses.

Rudolph announced the PARC Group’s plans to complete an extension of Pine Island Road connecting Nocatee to U.S. 1 in the second quarter of 2021. A new K-8 school is also planned to be completed in the second quarter of 2021 and open for the 2021-2022 school year. He also discussed commercial development in the Nocatee community, including the new Park Place One at Nocatee office complex by VanTrust and a third office building on the west side of Nocatee Parkway.

Chamber President and CEO Isabelle Renault said, “Nocatee is changing at a rapid pace and it was time for the Chamber to provide an update to its members. Mo’s presentation was informative and gave our members a good perspective on the continued growth in St. Johns County. His presentation was made available for review by our EDC members in the Member Information Center of our website under Resources.”

Randy Bradley, vice president, Northrop Grumman will provide the keynote speech at the next Economic Development Council Quarterly Breakfast on April 17. To find out more about the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce or to become a member visit, call (904) 829-5681, or find them on Facebook at
