Two new apartment communities, totaling 584 units and construction costs of more than $49 million, are in permitting review for South and North Jacksonville.
The city is reviewing applications for construction of the 260-unit Portiva in South Jacksonville at a construction cost of $24 million and the 324-apartment Lakeview at River City Marketplace in North Jacksonville at almost $25.17 million.

Rimrock Devlin Development LLC bought the 7.3-acre site this year for $2 million and brought on LIV Development LLC as a development partner.
