Renfroes Project Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Renfroes Project neighborhood homes range from modest, medium-sized ranch homes with nice yards, to definitely upper-end contemporaries on professionally designed, estate-like lawns. The Renfroes Project neighborhood lies south of East 9 Mile Road, between Jernigan Road and Westside Drive in zip code 32514.
Such a convenient location gives the residents of this area easy access to educational and retail sites, many within a short walk. For instance, The University of West Florida is about a mile north, just east of another great neighborhood feature, Scenic Hills Country Club. University Town Center is even closer and features several value stores along with national and local eateries.
Boaters will appreciate the convenience of the many launches, both at nearby Escambia Bay, and a bit farther south along the Gulf. The closest to the neighborhood is Swamphouse Marina on North Davis Highway. Perdido Key and Fort Pickens both offer Gulf access, as does the state park at Navarre Beach.
Pensacola has five colleges and universities, two of which are very close to the Renfroes Project neighborhood. The largest is The University of West Florida, offering both undergraduate and graduate programs. UWF also works closely on environmental and archaeological projects around Pensacola. Pensacola Junior College is nearby, too, with a full range of associates programs, along with technical and vocation certification classes.
Those with an interest in aviation will certainly enjoy the neighborhood’s proximity to the National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola Naval Station. Not only is this the home of the famed Blue Angels, who practice above Pensacola, but the Museum is also home to 150 vintage aircraft and features lots of interactive areas and an IMAX.
As a strategic point for defense, the area around the base has been the site of many forts under different flags since the early 1700s.
