Tamaya Coming to Life – One-of-a-Kind Luxury Community Taking Shape

There is a grand sense of momentum underway at Tamaya, the beautiful master-planned community offering a superb location between the Beaches and Downtown Jacksonville. Construction is progressing quickly on the new grand entrance, the Residents Club and many new homes.

The road leading to Tamaya’s new grand entrance fronting Beach Boulevard is well underway with completion anticipated ahead of schedule. The entry way will lead to a tree-lined boulevard and a magnificent two-story gatehouse that residents and guests will pass through to enter the neighborhoods at Tamaya.

“Immense thought and planning has gone into the development of Tamaya to create a one-of-a-kind community and a special place to call home,” said Don Wilford, Northeast Florida division president of ICI Homes. “Tamaya’s new grand entrance will be a spectacular addition to the community, providing an inviting and warm welcome to residents and guests.”

The design of the entrance way will complement Tamaya’s special surroundings and luxurious Mediterranean-style homes. When complete, Tamaya will feature distinctive homes, stunning natural areas and world-class amenities.

Construction is underway on the $11 million Residents Club, which is certain to be the crown jewel of the community. The Residents Club will be a gathering place for entertainment and get-togethers as well as a place for fitness, wellness and relaxation for Tamaya homeowners. The Residents Club will feature a resort-style pool and outdoor recreation areas, including tennis and an event lawn. The clubhouse will span 10,000 square feet and include nearly 4,500 square feet of interior fitness space. The inside of the clubhouse will house an expansive cardio room and a separate yoga and Pilates studio overlooking a garden and fountain area.

The Residents Club will have numerous social gathering places to enhance the community living experience including a spacious great room with catering kitchen, a club-room, a covered porch and an outdoor patio. The clubhouse has been designed to reflect Tamaya’s Mediterranean influences. It will exude a comfortable elegance with contemporary Italian Renaissance style, highlighting a neutral color palette with striking blue accents, clean lines, wood flooring and luxurious features and finishes. Completion of The Residents Club is anticipated in 2016.

“The Residents Club will serve as the perfect place for families to gather and enjoy the Tamaya lifestyle,” said David Haas, chief development officer at ICI Homes of Tamaya. “It will provide a magnificent lifestyle for the residents of Tamaya – a prestigious community offering many conveniences and an environment that inspires residents to know their neighbors and become friends.”

Beautiful parks and meandering walking paths will punctuate Tamaya’s special surroundings and luxurious Mediterranean-style homes.
