New apartment complex planned on Fleming Island

FLEMING ISLAND – NAI Hallmark, a leading commercial real estate brokerage and property management firm in Jacksonville brokered the sale of 11.371 acres of land located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 17 and Radar Road. The transaction was brokered by managing partners Keith Goldfaden and Christian Harden, SIOR on behalf of the seller, Fleming Island Business Park III, LLP.

The buyer, Bristol Development Group based in Franklin Tennessee, purchased the Property with plans to develop an upscale apartment community. Located at the northwest corner of U.S. 17 and Radar Road, the property is situated within one of Northeast Florida’s wealthiest zip codes.

“We received an incredible amount of interest in this property from developers across the country given it may be the last available multi-family site in all of Fleming Island,” said Keith Goldfaden, managing partner of NAI Hallmark.

Goldfaden added, “Clay county continues to experience strong growth and this new apartment community will help fill a crucial void for multi-family housing.

For more information regarding the sale or any questions relating to land sales, call NAI Hallmark at (904) 363-9002.

Applications for property tax exemptions due by March 1

CLAY COUNTY – County Property Appraiser Tracy S. Drake wants to inform the citizens of Clay County that the statutory deadline to apply for property tax exemptions is Monday, March 1.

Homestead exemption applicants must have legal or equitable title to the property as of Jan. 1. Applicants must also provide two documents to establish proof of permanent residency (i.e., updated driver’s license or identification card, voter registration card, vehicle registration, utility bill, etc.) and the social security numbers of all applicants (including spouses) is required. Applicants who are not U.S. citizens must provide a copy of their permanent resident (green) card. Applicants without permanent residence status should contact our office for eligibility details. Mobile home owners should also bring the title(s) or registration(s) to the mobile home.

Applications may be filed at the main office in Green Cove Springs located on the second floor of the Administration Building, the Orange Park branch office located at 1518 Park Ave. or at the Tax Collector’s branch office located at 7380 State Road 100 in Keystone Heights.

Once the initial application has been filed – and granted – the exemption will be automatically renewed each January and a renewal notice will be mailed to you. If you still live in the home and qualify for the exemption, no action is required - keep the renewal notice as your receipt and continue to enjoy the benefits of lower taxes. It is your responsibility to notify the Property Appraiser if your eligibility for exemptions has changed.

Florida law provides for a number of ad valorem property tax exemptions, classifications and assessment reductions which will reduce the taxable value of property. The property owner must qualify as of January 1 of the current assessment year. For more information, please visit, or contact our office at (904) 284-6305 or (904) 269-6305 to speak with an exemption specialist.
