Durbin Creek Crossing secures national tenants for the new St. Johns County mixed-use development

Colliers International's Nancy Sumner and Katy Figg will serve as leasing advisors.

Ponte Vedra Beach-based developer The Ferber Co. has started signing up tenants for Durbin Creek Crossing, a 70-acre mixed-use development in St. Johns County.

The property is located along Race Track Road and the State Road 9B interchange near Pavilion at Durbin Park.

The community will encompass up to 400 multifamily units and up to 250,000 square feet of retail space spread between 10 outparcels. Site plans also show a 6.5-acre pond and 22 acres of wetlands.

The retailers that have already signed include Aldi, ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, First Florida Credit Union and Tire Kingdom.

"Once ALDI locked-in, our leasing momentum attracted additional outparcel concepts that together with the multi-family community are creating an attractive mixed-use project for the northwest sector of St Johns County," Ferber Vice President Tom Mundy said in a statement. "Negotiations are underway with other national retailers, and we’re hoping to name additional tenants soon.”

The company expects to lease remaining space for quick service, fast casual or sit-down restaurants as well as medical offices. Colliers International's Nancy Sumner and Katy Figg will serve as leasing advisors.

Ferber expects to announce a residential partner in the next few months.
