St. Augustine, FL, March 19, 2024 – The Douglas Company, an award-winning general contractor, is pleased to announce that construction is underway on the first phase of Southpointe at Westminster St. Augustine, a Life Plan Community in St. Augustine, Florida. Developed by Westminster Communities of Florida, this phase of Southpointe will be comprised of 36 modern townhomes. The groundbreaking ceremony was hosted at the end of January and was well-attended by excited future residents.

Stewart & Conners Architects, PLLC  designed the 72,036 square-foot community expansion, which will boast the option of elevators and finish selections for residents in its two-story townhomes. Nestled into World Golf Village and surrounded by the beautiful pines of the Mill Creek area, Southpointe at Westminster St. Augustine will be a serene oasis for residents while retaining proximity to beaches, shops, and restaurants. Amenities for the Life Plan Community will be a focus for a later project phase. Construction on the townhomes is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2025.

“We are excited to be working with the owner, Westminster Communities of Florida, in the beginning stages of what is sure to be a world-class community and an incredible addition to the Historic Coast,” said Harrison Inman, project manager for The Douglas Company.
