LandSouth Breaks Ground on $25M Fla. Luxury Community
- May 13, 2016
Jacksonville, Fla.—General contractor LandSouth Construction has launched the construction of Portiva Residences, a $25 million luxury apartment community on the south side of Jacksonville, Fla. The community’s developer is LIV Development of Birmingham, Ala. The architect is Charlan Brock and Associates of Maitland, Fla.
Portiva Residences will offer 260 garden-style apartments across eight four-story elevator buildings on a 10-acre parcel. The community’s nine distinctive one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, ranging from 836 square feet to 1,605 square feet, will offer LVT flooring, granite countertops, solid wood cabinets and stainless appliances.
Common-area amenities will provide resort-like luxuries. They include a large pool, expansive clubhouse, car wash, state-of-the-art fitness room, cyber café and community party room. Located nearby are Dave & Buster’s restaurant and St. Johns Town Center, a bustling mixed-use retail venue.
The construction of Portiva Residences is benefitting from LandSouth’s proprietary integrated construction approach, whereby each service component works together to deliver a seamless delivery system. Each of the components is performance-enhanced with proven procedures, tested systems and the most up-to-date technology.
”Portiva Residences is in a great location within a short drive to some of Jacksonville’s most popular destinations,” noted LandSouth Construction’s senior vice president of development Joe Passkiewicz. “In addition to offering residents a great place to live and relax, the community affords a unique quality of life in this budding area.”
The 18-year-old, Jacksonville-based LandSouth Construction has finished more than 12,000 multifamily units, among them apartments, condos, senior living units and townhomes. The company is also constructing apartments and mixed-use developments throughout the Southeast, in such locations as Boynton Beach, Daytona Beach, Sanford and Lakeland, Fla.; Mt. Pleasant, S.C.; and Lawrenceville, Ga. It is adding senior housing in Bonita Springs, Fla.
“We are proud to have been selected for this exciting project, which will expand options for apartment living in a popular area of Jacksonville,” said James Pyle, LandSouth Construction president. “With spacious interiors, stylish finishes and amenities, the Portiva Residences lifestyle will offer the perfect balance between small-town comfort and big-city convenience.”
