McGarvey to develop Ocean Ridge in St. Augustine Beach


McGarvey Residential Communities is developing Ocean Ridge, a new community in St. Augustine Beach that the company says will reflect a commitment to conserving Florida’s natural resources.

“For the past 17 years we have been known as a significant steward for preserving the distinctive beauty that lies in the splendor of St. Augustine Beach’s native features, while creating desirable neighborhoods,” President Jay McGarvey said. “Ocean Ridge will be no exception.”

Located on Anastasia Island at Mickler Road and 11th Street, Ocean Ridge will blend a Florida beach-style architecture in a neighborhood with lake views and a private swim club located blocks away from the beach. Riverside Homes, Landon Homes and SH Design are creating new floor plans and designs as well as offering semi-custom and custom homes for the pristine single-family home sites.

“From its inception, the original intent and design for the community was to create a unique, environmentally sensitive neighborhood,” McGarvey said. “The three builders in the community share that vision for Ocean Ridge.”

With an oak canopy and hilly topography, Ocean Ridge will offer residents the benefits of treed lots and sea breezes while maintaining the innate beauty of one of the last planned communities in St. Augustine Beach, he added.

McGarvey’s other St. Augustine Beach communities include Sea Colony, Sea Grove, Anastasia Dunes and Beach Haven in Flagler County, all of which the company says were created with a desire to respect open space, maintaining the topography and landscaping with native plant material.

“As a company, we are dedicated to building communities that will be here for years to come, that both celebrate and maintain as much of the original character of the land as possible with graceful landscaped streets, native grasses and trees, and spaces to relax and gather,” Chief Financial Officer and Development Partner Dinah Robertson said.
