Chris Hughes, Principal of The Praedium Group, made the announcement of the investment firm’s most recent acquisition.
Constructed in 2018, The Point consists of eight, three-story apartment buildings and a clubhouse/leasing center. The Property’s unit mix consists of one- and two- bedroom homes ranging from 580 SF to 1,325 SF, with an average unit size of 960 SF.

Community amenities include swimming pool and shaded pool pavilion with summer kitchen, fitness center, yoga lawn, modern indoor/outdoor clubhouse with fireplace, dog park with dog wash station, and package concierge.
“The Point at Town Center presents an opportunity to acquire an institutional quality, garden-style multifamily community in a desirable location adjacent to Jacksonville’s largest employment hub (Deerwood Park) and dominant retail center,” said Chris Hughes. “We believe Jacksonville is rapidly growing and this location, surrounded by over 9 million SF of office and retail including Jacksonville’s renowned St. John’s Town Center, is ideal to ride the growth.”
Lindsay Schuckman, Associate of The Praedium Group, added: “The Point at Town Center is proximate to many of Jacksonville’s largest employers, including Deutsche Bank, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Johnson & Johnson Vision. Additionally, there are 2,700 specified high-paying jobs coming in the immediate area over the next year, in addition to other unspecified jobs from nearby expansions such as the Mayo Clinic and Deutsche Bank.”
The Point at Town Center is centrally located within Jacksonville between the area’s major roadways, Turner Butler Boulevard (SR 202), Interstate 95, and East Beltway 295. This location provides attractive visibility and connectivity to major hubs throughout the city, including University of North Florida (16,000+ students) and St. Vincent’s Medical Center (3,000 employees), each within 10 minutes of the Property, as well as downtown Jacksonville (15 minutes northwest), the beaches (15 minutes east), and Jacksonville airport (30 minutes northwest).
