Thompson Thrift will be developing Terrassa, a 324-unit luxury community in St. Augustine, Fla., a Jacksonville submarket. The company plans to break ground on the project this month, with completion scheduled for the fall of 2026.

Terrassa is part of the redevelopment of the former St. Augustine Outlets, an almost 100,000-square-foot retail center that was demolished two years ago.

Upon delivery, this will be the developer’s 17th Florida community. Thompson Thrift 2024 Multifamily Development LP will provide project equity.

Terrassa will rise on 14 acres at 500 Outlet Mall Blvd., close to Ford’s Garage Restaurant and the St. Augustine Premium Outlets. Downtown Jacksonville will be within 35 miles, while downtown St. Augustine will be some 8 miles away.

Common-area amenities are to include a fitness center, a swimming pool, courtyards, community grilling areas, a pickleball court, a dog park and a pet spa with grooming station. The project will also feature a social hub with billiards, a coffee bar, private focus rooms and a work area with printing station.

Earlier this month, the company announced the development of The Landing at Lemay, a 344-unit luxury project in Fort Collins, Colo. This project is scheduled to break ground this month as well.

In June, the firm opened The Depot, a 300-unit community in Raymore, Mo., a Kansas City suburb. Work on the development started in 2022 and was nearly 30 percent leased upon its opening.
