WILDLIGHT, Fla.—April 25, 2024—Wildlight, a master-planned mixed-use development
in Nassau County, today announced that The Church of Eleven22® will establish a
Wildlight campus. This marks the first location of The Church of Eleven22 in Nassau
County.


Located on the south side of state road 200, across from Crosstown Boulevard, the
campus will feature a spacious sanctuary and worship center spanning 40,000 square
feet, accommodating 1,000+ Wildlight residents, locals and visitors. Construction is
scheduled to begin this summer with a targeted completion date set for 2026. Ahead of
the official opening, a mobile campus is expected to launch in the fall of 2024 to serve as
a temporary worship center for the community.


“The Church of Eleven22 is excited for the incredible opportunity to expand into Nassau
County within the growing community at Wildlight. At Eleven22, we are a movement for
all people to discover and deepen a relationship with Jesus Christ,” expressed Jay Owen,
Eleven22 Executive Director of Communication & Digital Discipleship. “We have been
blessed with incredible favor from God and how He continues to move in us and through
us at The Church of Eleven22. We are excited for the build-out of this campus and look
forward to creating a place of worship for both residents and visitors alike.”


“Welcoming The Church of Eleven22 to Wildlight signifies more than just the
establishment of a physical campus; it represents our commitment to fostering a
flourishing community,” added Wes Hinton, vice president of Wildlight. “We believe that
the inclusion of Eleven22 will enrich the fabric of Wildlight while creating more
opportunities for connection.”


The new Wildlight campus will join 13 other Eleven22 locations across northeast Florida
and southeast Georgia.

Scherer Construction is leading the design build project. The architect is Basham & Lucas
Design Group.


Wildlight’s newest neighborhood, Hawthorn Park, doesn’t have a pond. It has three. But that’s not the only nature you’ll find here. This enclave by Pulte Homes backs to a preserve and has trail connections right outside your front door. And if you want to stroll to sushi or the hair salon, or bike to a craft beer at Mocama, you can do just that, because those trails will lead you to the Village Center

Want to experience even more of the great outdoors? Whistling Duck Pond will be opening nearby soon (hint: start looking for a kayak or canoe). And Four O’clock Park, Coin Toss Park and Waterbug Park offer even more ways to spend your days — from sports courts and an event lawn to bocce ball and a playful pool. Even the furry family members of the four-legged kind have their own opportunity to expend some energy, at their very own off-leash area. If you’re thinking that sounds like a pretty perfect place to live, well, you’re absolutely right. 

New homes … and a new kind of home

Hawthorn Park has two kinds of single-family homes by Pulte Homes. New-to-Wildight bungalows, with front porches and alley-load garages (many with homesites facing the pond). And the Village Homes, with thoughtful features like family-friendly gathering spaces and oversized kitchens. Whatever stage in life you’re at, or whichever floorplan you prefer, you’ll find the home that suits you best in this exciting new neighborhood.

March 9th was a big day. As in big fun. A big run. And a big donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County. 

Let’s start at … well, the starting line. Where over 923 runners participated in our second annual Run Wild 5K, new 10K and Family Fun Run. The course took place on the trailways and through the neighborhoods of Wildlight, where mile paces were met and personal records were set. And spectators had a great time lining the streets and cheering on friends, family — and complete strangers, too. 

Across the finish line (where runners 21+ were greeted by a finisher beer from Mocama Beer Company), there was a lot more fun waiting. Like food trucks with crepes and refreshing Italian ice. A local vendor marketplace. A kids’ zone with rock wall, face painting, balloon animals and more. Massages for the runners. And live music by The Band Be Easy for a little post-run dancing. 

A big shout-out to everyone who participated — and helped Wildlight raise $3,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County. The volunteers who made everything run (pun intended) seamlessly. And our top men’s and women’s finishers: Eden Kendall (24:24) and Cayden Driggers (19:29) in the 5K and Marin Bograd (45:00) and Zach Wrobel (40:43) in the 10K. (Check out the full list of participants and finish times here.) 

We’ve included some of our favorite pics from the day. But if you want to see more (or see what you missed), you can find more photos here and a video here

After two years of successful races, we’d say we’re sufficiently warmed up for another Run Wild next year. Stay tuned!

Northeast Florida is growing quickly. And since some of our new neighbors may be unfamiliar with how to prepare for hurricane season, we thought it might be helpful to pull together a few helpful facts and resources. 

When is hurricane season?

The Atlantic hurricane season stretches from June 1 to November 30. But tropical storms and even a few hurricanes have formed in every month of the year. 

How many storms occur during that time?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) offers an annual hurricane prediction for the Atlantic basin, which includes the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. On average, Florida is affected by a tropical storm or hurricane once every three years.

What are some ways I can stay prepared?

Nassau County Emergency Management has a whole webpage dedicated to hurricane preparedness, including ways to prepare far ahead of time and what to do when a storm is approaching or has made landfall. And Wildlight’s very own Home Owners Association has put together an extensive Disaster Preparedness Guide that covers everything from floods to fires. Another excellent resource is this disaster supply kit checklist from floridadisaster.org.

How can I stay up to date on hurricanes and tropical storms?

First, NOAA has a webpage that tracks every storm in the Atlantic. So you can see what’s brewing days before it gets close to Florida. And Nassau County has set up the opt-in AlertNassau service that will send you the latest updates on storms and other emergency situations via text, voice or email.

Why does northeast Florida experience so few hurricanes?

Northeast Florida has had fewer hurricane strikes in the last century than many other places in Florida. In fact, since 1851 (when people began to keep track of storm data) the region has been affected by a hurricane only once every six or seven years, with only one Category 3 storm and no Category 4 or 5 storms. Why so few? It’s a simple matter of geography. If you look at a map, you’ll see that the Atlantic coastline dips northwest, forming a sort of protected bay around the Jacksonville region. Just another confirmation that your decision to move here was a good one. 

Is Wildlight designed to withstand a hurricane?

Over the past decade, hurricane-resistant home design has advanced significantly. And Wildlight is one of the beneficiaries. All our homes are built to the latest standards for hurricane resiliency. And the community itself has been designed to manage large amounts of stormwater, greatly reducing the chance of flooding. 

No community or homebuilder can guarantee absolute invulnerability to storm damage. But with the steps we and our builders have taken, combined with Wildlight’s location on elevated land a few miles inland, you have a lot to feel good about. 

One last piece of advice

Keep in mind that you live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Like every other place, we sometimes have to contend with the extremes of nature. But just take some steps to prepare, take a deep breath, and go enjoy a sunny Florida day.

Actually, make that good things at The Horizon. Because Del Webb’s newest amenity, Horizon Club, is going to have everything you need to make your days even more delightful. Exclusively for use by residents of our gated Del Webb 55+ neighborhood, Horizon Club is where relaxation meets activation — and this 16,000-square-foot space has room for it all. (Even dogs get their very own park.) 

Start your day with yoga on the event lawn, or soak in the sun by the resort-style pool. (Want to get a few laps in? There will be lanes for that, too.) For the fitness-minded, a fully equipped workout center will feature top-of-the-line machines, weights and equipment. And outside, pickleball and tennis courts will serve up some fun for beginners and more seasoned players alike. Green thumbs (or those striving to be) can hone their skills in the community garden. And an arts & crafts room will provide an outlet for creativity — whether your passion is painting or pottery. 

There will be plenty of other spaces to gather as well — like an event ballroom for bigger get-togethers and an outdoor firepit for impromptu happy hours. Speaking of happy hours … the onsite bar and grill just might become your new favorite hangout (if, of course, you don’t want to head to Wildlight’s Village Center for a burger, tacos or sushi). And the best part? This is just the start of what Horizon Club will have. 

With all this space to play, relax and meet new friends and neighbors, don’t be surprised if you feel like every day feels like a little vacation — there’s even plenty of golf cart parking.

WILDLIGHT, Fla. (Dec. 6, 2022) – PulteGroup, one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, has announced plans for its newest neighborhood, Hawthorn Park, coming soon to the Wildlight community, a master-planned mixed-use development in Nassau County.

The new construction single-family home community will consist of 25 50-foot homesites and 49 bungalow-style homes with rear-loading garages. Hawthorn Park at Wildlight will embody the community’s overall Florida Lowcountry and coastal aesthetic. Development is underway and sales are anticipated to open in mid-2023.

“We are thrilled to be building on our success at Forest Park and proud to announce our next community at Wildlight, Hawthorn Park,” said Tony Nason, PulteGroup’s Northeast Florida Division President. “With Wildlight’s superb location, excellent local schools and outstanding recreation offerings combined with the value Pulte offers, we expect strong home buyer interest at Hawthorn Park.” As Wildlight’s newest neighborhood, Hawthorn Park is truly unique. Surrounded by three ponds in close proximity to the trail system, residents will have plenty of opportunities to bike, kayak and birdwatch. And although it may feel like a private sanctuary, it’s still a short bike or golf cart ride away to Wildlight’s village center with a variety of restaurants and services, including a new Publix.

“We really value our partnership with PulteGroup and are excited about the future.” said Wes Hinton, vice
president, Wildlight. “Hawthorn Park will be a unique addition to their existing Forest Park and Del Webb communities that have been so instrumental in shaping the residential landscape here at Wildlight.”
Hawthorn Park is a welcomed addition to Wildlight’s initial phase, consisting of 2,900 acres with a mix of residential homesites, multi-family apartments, an expansive town center including a new Publix, top rated schools, and UF Health and YMCA facilities already in place. Miles of trails, creative parks and amenities, and almost half of the community dedicated to green space create a healthy and vibrant environment for residents.
