condo communities, offers homebuyers a diverse array of beautifully
appointed homes in meticulously restored historic school buildings.

lifestyle for residents who enjoy cultural ambience with modern
"I like that I live in a building that is unique to everything
around it," said homebuyer John Hoffman, who recently purchased one
of the 68 residences that comprise The John Gorrie. "All too often,
people end up buying the home that looks exactly like their
neighbors, with no personal style or appeal."
There are plenty of options for homebuyers at The John Gorrie,
where available homes include studios, one- and two-bedroom
condominiums, and two-story townhomes ranging in size from 800
square feet to 1,800 square feet and priced from the low $100,000s.
The diversity of floor plans and pricing was one of the draws for
Hoffman, who chose his home specifically for its size and
affordability. His one-bedroom, one-bathroom flat features the
original hardwood floors from a classroom and eight-foot windows
that overlook the majestic oak trees adorning the school's
landscape. "With the window shades up during the day it almost
feels like I live in a tree house," said Hoffman.
Great lengths were taken to modernize the buildings to today's
housing standards. Residents enjoy contemporary amenities including
a custom-designed fitness center, elevators, private gated parking
and a resident reading room featuring Wi-Fi internet access. The
restored original private courtyard provides residents with a
tranquil outdoor gathering space. Modern luxuries in all residences
include stainless steel GE appliances, CaesarStone countertops,
gourmet kitchens and pedestal sinks in bathrooms. "The building has
the feel and appearance of classic styling but is completely and
thoughtfully modernized," said Hoffman.
Located at 2525 College Street, residents are within walking
distance of cozy neighborhood restaurants, local boutiques and
charming storefronts. Residents also enjoy close proximity to the
banks of the St. Johns River, oak-canopied streets and a sampling
of the area's most marvelously maintained parks. The community is
minutes from downtown Jacksonville, cultural landmarks such as The
Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens and national sporting venues. "My
best advice for homebuyers is to find an area or neighborhood that
you really enjoy first with the right mix of things that are most
important to you," said Hoffman.
