WILDLIGHT, FL. – Feb. 16, 2021 – Del Webb, the nation’s leading builder of active adult communities for those 55 and older, has announced a new community, Del Webb Wildlight, coming to Nassau County near Amelia Island within the master-planned community of Wildlight.
“We are pleased to welcome Del Webb to Wildlight as the community’s first neighborhood for active adults,” said Wes Hinton, Vice President of Wildlight. “Del Webb’s strong brand recognition for quality design, resort-style amenities and close community connection makes it the ideal fit for Wildlight and our Florida Lowcountry lifestyle. As the gateway to the state of Florida and one of the fastest growing counties in North Florida, Nassau County and Wildlight offer a perfect launching point for this best-in-class active adult builder.”
Located just north of Jacksonville and south of the Georgia line, Del Webb Wildlight will include up to 660 single-family and villa homes. Del Webb will build on 33- to 65-foot-wide homesites and offer 16 consumer inspired floor plans ranging in size from 1,343 to 3,339 square feet. Development is currently underway with models projected to open in early 2022 and new homes starting in the $200s.
“We are excited to partner with Wildlight to expand our Del Webb brand into Nassau County,” said Tony Nason, Vice President of Operations of PulteGroup’s North Florida Division. “With the increasing active adult demand in Northeast Florida, Wildlight’s proximity to Amelia Island’s world class beaches, the Jacksonville International Airport, and the Florida state line makes it the perfect location for our next Del Webb community.”
Del Webb Wildlight residents will enjoy the active-adult lifestyle with approximately six acres of recreational areas that include a 12,000-square-foot amenity center designed for group activities and gatherings, a resort-style and lap pool, tennis and pickleball courts, a dog park and more. Del Webb Wildlight will have more than 10 miles of walking trails winding through the community, linking the neighborhood to other parks, amenities, the YMCA, and neighborhood restaurants in Wildlight.
Wildlight is a master-planned, mixed-use community offering plenty of opportunities for exploration and recreation. Wildlight homes and community amenities are designed using Florida Lowcountry (FLOCO) inspired architecture, with sweeping porches and window transoms to maximize views of the community’s lakes, natural wetlands and wooded areas. Wildlight is a natural gas community and the first Gigabit community in Nassau County, providing the area’s fastest internet. The community is on State Road 200 between I-95 and U.S. Highway 17 in Nassau County, conveniently located 12 miles from Amelia Island and 12 miles from Jacksonville International Airport.
PulteGroup has two additional popular age-restricted Del Webb communities in Northeast Florida. The communities, which offer active-adult living and a variety of amenities, include Del Webb eTown and Del Webb Nocatee. For more information, visit www.delwebb.com.
