Raydient Places + Properties is on a mission to create places with purpose.
That’s why we push further. We break convention, challenge the status quo and strive to build places with a purpose.
Through exhaustive market research, meticulous attention to financial feasibility and process, stewardship of the land and environment, inspired design and master planning, we go one step beyond the expected to create the extraordinary.
Whether it’s a country property destined to be a family homestead, farm or ranch, or a community that brings people together, with higher quality schools, healthy living and abundant opportunities for recreation and enjoying the outdoors, we know each place we create has an important purpose to fulfill.
What We Do
Raydient masterplans, develops, builds, markets and sells “places and properties” ranging from multi-use communities and industrial parks to rural homesteads and recreational lands.
We are the taxable subsidiary of Rayonier, a leading timberland real estate investment trust with assets located in some of the most productive timber growing regions in the U.S. and New Zealand. The majority of that land will always be used for forestry activities. But when the real estate market demands a higher and better use for a property, our team steps in to transition that timberland for its future purpose.
Start with a purpose
Every place is built on a cause and that’s to improve the way people live.
Everything we do gives back to our landscape and our communities.
Be people centered
Create places that are human scale and that facilitate people finding and
pursuing their passion. "Built for you." That matters to us.
Think big, act small
Pursue the big ideas and execute in small but powerful steps. Leave room
for flexibility and change.
The best places and the best ideas are simple ones. Keep asking: "can we make it simpler?"
Cut through the jargon, hear between the lines, give people what they want even if they can’t articulate it.
The truly great ideas are durable. Create places that sustain and regenerate and get better over time.
Enduring places are authentic and made of natural and indigenous ingredients. Our places are planned and developed as a natural evolution of the region’s ecosystem and
quality of life.
Be forward leaning
Pursue innovation in everything we do. Don’t just do it like we did it before, do it for now. Don’t be afraid to fail. Try new things. All breakthroughs begin by provoking
Our craft requires both vision and action, art and science, magic and logic, creativity and technical expertise.
Commit to comfort
Our places are not built for ego or status but for comfort and connections.
"Plus" what we do continuously
Always ask: how can we improve, how can we make it better?
Be honest and trustworthy
And constantly remember – our relationships and approach to business are honest and built on trust – all business is personal.
Raydient’s community-building business includes residential and mixed-use developments. Our premiere community, Wildlight, is a 2900-acre mixed-use development in Nassau County, Florida. In creating communities, our team is intent on shifting the emphasis from buildings to man-made and natural environments that in tangible ways bring meaning, happiness and fulfillment to people’s lives.
At Wildlight, we are creating and perfecting the Florida Lowcountry style and vernacular. It is simple, comfortable, organic, welcoming, playful and sometimes a little quirky! This 2900-acre mixed-use community is truly a place to work, live and play, with beautiful homes; picturesque parks and trails; and a state-of-the-art K-5 elementary school, restaurants, shops and an urgent care facility among its amenities, with many other businesses coming online soon.
Port Gamble encompasses 318-acres total, including a 120-acre developed townsite and 1.4 miles of waterfront on the scenic shores of Hood Canal just outside of Seattle. We are seeking interest from developers, builders, investors, and potential partners, for Port Gamble, a historic town in Kitsap County, Washington.
Arborwood is a 374-acre property approved for 750 single-family homes. The project will add more than 100 acres to the adjacent 800-acre North Kitsap Heritage Park. Arborwood residents will live “in balance” with access to nature and endless trails, all a short distance to a walk-on Kingston/Seattle ferry just 1.4 miles away.
Rural Land Sales
Our rural properties team understands the importance of having a place to call your own, with room for your boat or R.V., neighbors out of view, and maybe even space for livestock and an extra large garden. We also offer larger properties that are ideal for recreational uses like hunting or family estates. With country land for sale in the Southeastern United States from Florida to Texas, there’s something for every rural land need.
The Raydient rural land sales team takes a lot of the legwork out of finding the best rural property for a future homestead, farm ranch or recreational site. Our Rural Places have easy access, road frontage and we often add culverts for driveways. We even do the work of ensuring a clear title before the property goes on the market, making buyers that much closer to their dream homesite or getaway.
Commercial and Industrial Development
Raydient has a select number of properties in key locations for industrial and commercial development. Our team has the expertise to identify properties with ideal features for distribution, such as rail access and proximity to major ports and highways. We work with local stakeholders to promote economic growth and development.
