The Menlo at eTown


THE PROJECT: Catalyst Development Partners broke ground in January 2019 to build a new 332-unit, 7 building, 4-story Class AA apartment community within the Jacksonville master planned community of eTown as the exclusive multi-family offering. First unit delivery is scheduled for early 2020 with final completion of all phases of construction by August 2020.

THE CATALYST: Within eTown, the PARC Group is developing several planned neighborhoods with approximately 1,400 single family homes from the Mid $200s beyond the High $300s. Community names for those subdivisions within eTown pay homage to innovators to include: Del Webb, Kettering, Marconi, Edison and Nobel. Catalyst Development Partners is the exclusive multifamily developer at eTown and will deliver a luxury apartment community with 332 units across 13.5 acres. Plus eTown will contain over 125,000 square feet of retail as part of phase one development, including various planned restaurants and shops with a grocery anchor. Consistent with the spirit of innovation branded at eTown, it was a priority the name of our multi-family development complement the single family home communities named after Edison, Marconi, Del Webb, Kettering and Nobel. The influence for the name stems from the origins of Menlo Park, the site of Thomas Edison’s first laboratory which is revered as one of the greatest historic thought-incubators amongst inventors. With that rationale, THE MENLO positions our luxury multi-family project with contemporary association to the neighborhoods in development within the eTown master community. 

The Menlo offers one, two, and three-bedroom apartments ranging from 678 to 1,360 square feet. Apartment finishes include: gourmet kitchens with table-sized islands, quartz counters, subway tile backsplashes, wood-inspired plank flooring, stainless steel appliance package, contemporary lighting, walk-in showers, spacious closets, full-size washers and dryers, plus balconies and outdoor patios to maximize views from most units.

The Menlo community will offer residents well-appointed and ultra-high end amenities, including a 24-hour Fitness Club with interactive cardio equipment and top of the line cross training equipment; indoor Yoga/Spin room with Fitness On Demand classes; comfortable co-working spaces for collaborative meetings; media, entertainment, gaming opportunities; and onsite coffee café. Outdoor resident amenities feature a resort style pool; Summer kitchens with gas grill stations, pub-style dining areas; fire pit with cozy seating; outdoor retreats and entertainment areas, plus a sports court, dog park and pet grooming spa.

PROJECTED RESULTS: The Menlo has already received strong demand from interested prospective residents who anticipate the opening of this luxury community in January/February 2020. The Clubhouse is scheduled to open in January 2020 with first resident move-ins scheduled shortly thereafter. From I-295, The Menlo is located just off exit 9Bat 11390 Square Street; Jacksonville, Florida 32256.
