In the second quarter 2014 Metro Study report, World Golf Village was ranked in the top ten communities for annual construction starts with 86 homes under construction. Two of World Golf Village’s premier communities, The Cascades and Heritage Landing, are building out their remaining few homesites and The Residences’ new condominium phase, La Fontana at the Residences, will begin construction of a new building of 13 condominium homes in September.

We are all very happy to see that the World Golf Village area is growing again! You’ve probably noticed all the construction going on in the King & Bear, the Cascades, the Residences and the communities surrounding us. I analyze the Northeast Florida market statistics every month to see how our area is improving over time and I wanted to share the positive information I found. We have some really great things happening in and around WGV in 2014!

First, let’s look at what’s going on around our community and then we will look at what’s happening in WGV.

If you’ve been by the World Commerce Center recently, you’ve probably noticed all the construction going on. Mattamy Homes is building a community called Segovia, which will be a new townhome project of 220 homes.

You would be hard pressed to find a better example of dedication to community than Shelby Heinemann. A resident of Heritage Landing since 2004, Shelby has become a fixture in the World Golf Village scene. In fact, if you live here or have kids in the area’s schools, you have likely seen her busily helping out at school, showing properties to potential new residents, or smiling and waving at neighbors. For Shelby, it’s these seemingly small gestures that add up in a meaningful way.

Shelby has been a Property Manager with the Davidson Companies since May 2012 and boasts almost seven years of experience in the Property Management field – most of that experience garnered in World Golf Village. A mother of three, she is also an active education advocate within St. Johns County Schools and a Davidson Cares Board member. Davidson Cares is an organization that offers support for local schools, including Mill Creek Elementary, Wards Creek Elementary, Palencia Elementary, and Pacetti Bay Middle School.
