North Florida Land Trust has received a donation of 2.48-acres of land in St. Johns County. The property, classified as a trade land, was donated by Inman Park Lofts, LLC. A trade land is a non-conservation property that is intentionally donated to NFLT for subsequent sale. The proceeds will be used by NFLT to help fund its mission to protect North Florida’s irreplaceable natural environment.

“These types of transactions are somewhat unusual but do provide us with unrestricted funds that can in turn be used to save conservation properties throughout north Florida because it is now or never,” said Allison DeFoor, interim president of NFLT. “We will use the money we receive from the sale of this property to fund and forward our mission to protect our area’s most environmentally sensitive lands.”

The property is located along Thompson Bailey Road near the Lennar’s St. Augustine Lake Subdivision which is currently under construction. The property has appraised for $86,000 and is zoned for residential use. Inman Park Lofts, LLC contacted NFLT to inquire about the donation of the property and NFLT agreed to accept the donation.

Those interested in learning more about purchasing the property can contact NFLT’s Conservation Transaction Manager Kim Hall at khall@nflt.org or at (904) 557-7986.
