FirstService Residential Selected to Provide Lifestyle Management Services for Community Development District in St. Johns County
The Marshal Creek CDD oversees the infrastructure and operations for the Palencia community, which is home to more than 1,600 residences. Located along the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine, Palencia is one of the largest master-planned communities in Northeast Florida.
FirstService Residential will manage the amenities and lifestyle programs for the 1,450-acre community.
“The Marshall Creek CDD board spent considerable time this summer interviewing, reference checking, and doing site visits with several property management companies in Florida,” said Howard Hoffman, chairman of the board of supervisors, MCCDD. “We decided to partner with FirstService Residential because of their depth of resources and extensive experience running communities like ours. We are very excited about what the FirstService Residential team will be able to accomplish and we look forward to working with them to continue improving the lifestyle of Palencia residents.”
Residents enjoy a host of world-class amenities, including The Village Center, located in the heart of the community, featuring tennis facilities with Har-Tru courts, an aquatic complex complete with three resort-style pools and water slide, a fully equipped fitness center, and a championship golf course.
