Spotlight On...
First Federal Bank
Built on conservative yet progressive principles, over the past 55 years, First Federal has increased its business lines to include a mortgage processing company, wholesale lending, warehouse lending, consumer direct lending, and a manufactured housing lending division. This diversity has allowed First Federal to reach more people across the Southeast.
The common thread that runs through all of this is First Federal’s passion to be committed to helping their neighbors and local communities thrive. They offer a range of products and services aimed at giving their customers all the tools they need to live full lives and run successful businesses.
Wildlight
Wildlight is planned to be a 2,900-acre mixed-use development in Nassau County approved for 7 million square-feet of office, commercial, medical, industrial and residential use. Residents enjoy an idyllic way of life in a natural and playful environment with small-town charm, big-city amenities, top-ranked schools and a low cost of living. Wildlight is envisioned as a new town inspired by a character, culture and pattern of living that we call “Florida Lowcountry,” where play is a part of every day and the natural world is a natural part of life. Wildlight will offer comfortable and friendly Florida Lowcountry living 20 miles north of Jacksonville, just east of Interstate 95 on A1A, with easy access to both Amelia Island and the Jacksonville International Airport. New homes from the mid $200s. Approximately half of Wildlight’s total acreage is preserved for conservation, with bike trails, bike lanes, parks and wetlands putting nature close at hand. A robust business district – including a hotel, shops and restaurants – will offer endless opportunities for work and play.
