WE Communities Completes Renovations of The District On Kernan Apartments in Jacksonville, Fla.

Newly renovated District On Kernan community

We listened to our most important audience – our residents—and spent that last year upgrading almost every facet of our apartments and community to provide a complete worry-free environment they deserve.

The nearly $4 million renovation of The District on Kernan– a 360-unit/1,096-bed community at 3601 Kernan Blvd S. – is now complete, bringing significant upgrades to this rapidly evolving community near the University of North Florida.

Fitting for the Jacksonville lifestyle, the renovation includes fully redesigned two, three and four-bedroom apartments featuring new black appliances, contemporary kitchen countertops, new kitchen cabinets, modern lighting and faucet fixtures. Interior renovations also include new low-VOC paint, brushed nickel ceiling fans, upgraded bathrooms (lighting, countertops and vanities), and faux hardwood plank flooring. The District on Kernan apartments – originally built in 1996 – has a range of additional innovative community features, which have also been upgraded for their residents this fall. These enhancements include: controlled resident access and parking, after-hours patrol services, new Academic Business Center (including new touch computers), complimentary and private academic tutoring services, free high-speed internet and cable, free shuttle service to and from UNF and FSCJ and enhanced 24/7 fitness center – including CrossFit equipment.

According to Nelson North, director of property management for WE Communities, which specializes in the administration of student and multifamily apartment communities across the United States, the reinvention of the District on Kernan continues and strives to be the progressive and innovative apartment community in Jacksonville, Fla.

“We listened to our most important audience – our residents—and spent last year upgrading almost every facet of our apartments and community to provide a complete worry-free environment they deserve,” he said. “Our residents will find upgraded finishes throughout their apartments, new appliances and luxury amenities not found in other apartment communities in Jacksonville – including our two resort style swimming pools with barbecues and resident study and relaxation lounge areas.”

Located within minutes of the University of North Florida, Florida State College of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beaches – just a short drive from downtown Jacksonville’s shops and restaurants – The District on Kernan is also pet friendly.
