“Vista Brooklyn is located in one of the premier submarkets within the Jacksonville MSA,” said Whitson Huffman, chief strategy and investment officer. “Within walking distance to many restaurants and points of interest, and situated one mile from downtown Jacksonville, the community is highly attractive to millennials and residents looking for a walkable lifestyle.
