A local developer has started construction on a 303-unit community located in the Florida Panhandle. MH Deer Moss Creek LLC has broken ground on The Enclave at Deer Moss Creek in Niceville, Fla. The community is expected to open to a first round of residents in 2024 and is scheduled to deliver in the first quarter of 2025.

The developer tapped FaverGray as the project’s general contractor, while HEDK will serve as architect and Meeks Design Groups will be tasked with landscape services. The project team also includes Jenkins Engineering as civil engineer and Jordan & Skala Engineers, handling MEP services.

The Enclave at Deer Moss Creek will have its units divided amongst nine three-story buildings and a pair of two-story buildings. The community’s amenities will include a 7,935-square-foot clubhouse, a pool, mail kiosk, outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, gas fire pits, two dog parks and two playgrounds.

The developer is also looking to improve the community’s surrounding area with several site improvements for water, storm and sewer utilities that will be connected to existing public utilities. The plans also call for hardscaping, landscaping, irrigation, asphalt paving, concrete sidewalks and ponds. Located on an 18-acre site at 1000 Deer Moss Loop, the community is a short commute to the area’s beaches, including Henderson Beach State Park and James Lee Beach.

Growing demand in the Florida Panhandle

Located in Niceville, Fla., The Enclave at Deer Moss Creek falls in a stretch of northwestern Florida between Pensacola and Tallahassee. Those two cities rank among the top 10 cities or units under construction in the state, contributing to a rise in construction starts in the region. Recently, Housing Trust Group and a nonprofit group broke ground on a 107-unit community in the nearby Crestview, Fla., and a joint venture between Landmark Properties and Atlantic American Partners revealed plans for a 702-bed student housing project in Tallahassee, Fla.

FaverGray has extensive experience in the Sunshine State. Earlier this month, FaverGray broke ground on a 234-unit in Lutz, Fla., that’s closer to the Tampa metro. The company was also tasked with building a 295-unit community in Jacksonville, Fla., breaking ground in September.
