The St. Johns River Water Management District is reviewing an application for TriBridge Residential’s proposed first-phase 271-unit apartment project along with a 3,000-square-foot apartment amenity and a 130-seat restaurant and patio at 1 Riverside Ave. in the Downtown Brooklyn area.
TriBridge is the owner through TBR One Riverside Owner LLC.
The site is 18.84 acres. Prosser Inc. is the civil engineer.
Fuqua Development of Atlanta bought the site Feb. 4 and sold property to TriBridge for the apartments and to the city for a city park and restoration of McCoys Creek.
The site is the former Florida Times-Union campus and is being demolished by Pece Of Mind Environmental Inc. of Orlando.
The redevelopment will be called One Riverside.
Fuqua will develop a grocery store and retail space.
Plans filed Feb. 18 show TriBridge Residential’s two apartment buildings along the Riverwalk and St. Johns River.
Building 1000 is connected to the restaurant, which includes patio seating. Building 2000 has a swimming pool along the river. The eight-level, 625-space parking garage is between Building 2000 and a grocery store that will front Riverside Avenue.
A 3,000-square-foot apartment amenity building is next to the garage. There is a proposed dog run near the Riverwalk, in addition to pedestrian plazas and public art.
TriBridge plans 125 more apartments in a second phase.
