Award winning project.... 5 Thousand Town .... recipient of the 2015 IIDA North Florida Interior Design Award in the Residential category.
The Marina San Pablo Yacht Club, recently renovated by Group 4 Design, now houses the Sales Gallery for Aphora at Marina San Pablo, a new luxury condominium tower near the current Marina San Pablo residence. Our design team preserved the beautiful views of the marina while creating an unobtrusive sales gallery within the club for Aphora. The residents of Marina San Pablo continue to use the clubhouse for community functions and private parties, while Aphora welcomes future residents who are ready to upgrade their lifestyle to the Aphora way of living. By creating subtle changes to the interior finishes and changing the furniture to a more coastal and transitional style, the designers were able to create spaces aligned with the design direction for Aphora at Marina San Pablo.
Aphora will be an ultra-luxury condominium near J. Turner Butler Boulevard and San Pablo Road on the Intracoastal Waterway in Jacksonville, Fla. Sales are underway for the 57 residences and the building, homes and amenity spaces are being designed by Group 4 Design’s architecture and interior design team. Visit Aphora’s website at www.aphoracondos.com or call 904-515-5099 for a preview of the project or to arrange a visit to the newly renovated Aphora Sales Gallery.
Group 4 is super excited to see "Spyglass" moving along. Spyglass will be an apartment project in Baymeadows that will feature a new modern style not present elsewhere in the vicinity.
