Luxury oceanfront condos coming to Jacksonville Beach


Sales are now underway on what may be one of the final, oceanfront condo developments of its size in Jacksonville Beach.

Azure – a nine-story luxury boutique community being developed by Related Group – will feature 26 residences with prices beginning at $2.3 million. And while the sales gallery was slated to open at 1401 1st St. South in early October, representatives say that 50 percent of Azure’s units are already sold nearly two years ahead of its anticipated June 2023 opening.

“With thousands of people moving to Florida every day, Jacksonville’s evolution into a true luxury destination has accelerated exponentially,” said Related President Jon Paul Pérez. “The Related team has been raising the bar for residential living for over 40 years, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring our unique development approach to booming Jacksonville Beach.”

Featuring contemporary architecture by Arquitectonica, Azure will capitalize on its oceanfront views with a glass façade and cube-shaped structure inspired by artist Piet Mondrian. Similarly, the building’s interiors will also reflect a fine-art motif, with museum-quality modern art gracing nearly every room. Pieces within Azure’s collection, representatives say, will be hand-curated by Related’s team of art experts.

“Azure is unlike anything else in this market, showcasing Related’s legendary attention to detail and emphasis on best-in-class design,” said Michael Hammon, senior vice president of Related. “From the expansive units to its resort-style amenities, Azure establishes a new standard of living in Jacksonville Beach. It’s a project that will blow away expectations and will never be replicated.”

Ranging from two-bedroom, 2,400-square-foot units to five-bedroom 6,500-square-foot residences, Azure’s 26 units will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, private elevators and high-end finishings. Each chef’s kitchen, for example, will come standard with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, bespoke quartz countertops and custom-designed Italian cabinetry.

The master suites, meanwhile, include spa-inspired bathrooms equipped with a double vanity and free-standing tub.

Wired for wellness

Azure’s amenities also include DARWIN, a “Home Wellness Intelligence Network” that uses proprietary algorithms and sensor technologies to monitor and calibrate air, water and light quality to enhance energy, sleep and overall wellness. Additional wellness-minded offerings include a fitness center, steam room, sauna, massage room and an oceanfront pool deck with poolside bar, fire pit and spaces for private social gatherings.
