Riverfront Jacksonville project spans Northbank Downtown

The site plan starts at the former Jacksonville Landing site and ends near TIAA Bank Field.

Here are the maps and project descriptions from the “Downtown Jacksonville Northbank - Conceptual Master Plan Development Program Map” and a news release from the developer.

The proposed Riverfront Jacksonville project spans the St. Johns riverfront from the former Jacksonville Landing site to southeast of TIAA Bank Field, more than 1.5 miles.

1. Building One: A sustainable split-level, mixed-use building will house 120,000 square feet of next-generation commercial office space with ground-level restaurant and retail space. An open corridor design will provide views of the river along Laura Street.

2. Building Two: A 14-level condominium tower will add 100 custom units to Downtown’s housing inventory, with panoramic views of Downtown and the St. Johns River. The building will include a state-of-the-art wellness center and retail spaces at the plaza level.

The space will feature flexible design elements, virtual technologies and adaptive spaces, alongside retail and entertainment orientations on the ground level and rooftop spaces that are programmed to enhance the visitor experience.

8. Building Eight: A 27-level/410-unit residential tower with a mix of apartment and condominium units will anchor the east end of the site. Another 50,000 square feet of retail spaces are envisioned at the plaza level.
