Bartram Walk


Inspired by coastal architecture found in historic St. Augustine, Bartram Walk is a collection of unique individual retail and office buildings that are architecturally cohesive, positioned in a horseshoe pattern around a central lake amenity.

Bartram Walk is a 36-acre, mixed-use planned development ideally positioned along Florida State Road 13 in northern St. Johns County, Florida. The project has been planned as a community destination consisting of neighborhood local shops, a feature lake, community park space, and quaint landscaped courtyards.

Special attention was given in the design and development of exterior spaces that mold the buildings together while providing a festival atmosphere for patrons. The ELM design team provided planning, architectural and landscape architectural services from the project inception.

The ELM principals know what I’m looking for, but to a greater level of detail. … There’s as much attention put into the site – the archways, entry details, pavers, site furnishings and plants – as into the buildings. They have a vision of the project that goes from curb to curb. If you walk through San Marco or Winter Park and ask someone what makes the place so comfortable, most people can’t put their finger on why. But ELM can create a design that produces that same feeling in a new building, and that’s magic, as far as I’m concerned.
