About: Development of the Sandalwood neighborhood began in the spring of 1960. Designed to provide residents with an ideal balance of work and play, Sandalwood is located approximately halfway between Jacksonville city center and its nearest beach, which is roughly six miles east of the neighborhood.
The primary concept for Sandalwood, developed by Pearce-Uible, included 500 houses. To give the neighborhood an exotic ambiance, all of the original streets were named after Pacific Islands. Mindanao Drive, Hawaii Drive East, and Kusai Drive are three of the original roadways. Two more streets, Majuro Drive and Luana Drive, were added to the neighborhood in 1969.
Nearly half of the houses in the modern Sandalwood neighborhood are quite new. The original properties from the 1960s are located in the northern half of the area, while newer houses extend to the southern part of the neighborhood. Several educational establishments call the area home, including Sandalwood High School, which was established in 1971.
