Nocatee has been designed as a complete, sustainable new town to balance work and recreation, in a walkable livable community. The master developer is The PARC Group, Inc., a developer of residential communities in Northeast Florida. The PARC Group has been named Developer of the Year for the past seven years by the Sales and Marketing Council of the Northeast Florida Builders Association.
