   “We consider Monde Group a creator of place and a sponsor of culture,” explains Monde Group Founder & Managing Partner Blake Jackson. The careful selection of the words Monde and Esplanade reflects the company’s values. “Both words are French. Monde – meaning people, society and world. Our properties celebrate the potential of those three components and the power of innovative design. Esplanade represents this place as a path along the river and the French explorers that discovered it.” That’s the vision of each Monde Group project: providing residents with quality design, impeccable service and world-class amenities. 

   The Sylvana in the Esplanade District of North Little Rock is the group’s most ambitious development to date. “We’re pleased to introduce Sylvana – lady of the forest – to Central Arkansas as the second development in the district. It’s out of a dream, but it’s very real.” Inspired by Florida beach neighborhoods along 30A, the Sylvana is phase two of this 41 acre planned community and exudes an undeniable chic appeal. Sylvana will include 167 apartment homes – all with private balconies or patios – and a rooftop bar overlooking the Esplanade District, Arkansas River and Little Rock skyline. A swimming pool, hot tub, grilling area, lush gardens, fitness center and secured parking are additional amenities. 

   “Our developments offer a sense of place and memorable experiences. It’s magical when people come together to share their lives in an atmosphere of unity, harmony and friendship,” Blake notes. “We take that responsibility to heart. The spaces we create will last much longer than we will, so it’s important to do them right. They inevitably will become our legacy.”  

   Monde Group is a development firm that specializes in real estate, architectural design, marketing and management. This unique interdisciplinary business model brings together the talent + expertise of the Jackson family whose combined skills achieve greatness. As a result, Monde Group plays a pivotal role throughout the development process providing complete design, planning and vision to each project with a combination of practicality and artistry. 

   This multi-phase, mixed-use district represents a bold plan for the future of Central Arkansas including single-family residences, high-rise residential offerings, restaurants, bars and a boutique hotel. “We are always mindful of the MONDE mantra – helping people make the world a better, more meaningful place. We do this through imagination, design and social planning as we build responsibly and create extraordinary places.”
