Why Downtown Jacksonville

Join us as we build up Downtown.

Southern and metropolitan, Downtown Jacksonville is the centerpoint of the city for the 1.5 million people in the Jacksonville MSA. It is the heart of Northeast Florida’s arts, history, business, innovation and civic engagement, and welcomes people from all walks of life. Geographically central to the region, Downtown covers nearly four square miles and sits at the junction of Interstates 10 and 95.

Office and residential towers flank nearly six miles of beautiful waterfront along the St. Johns River. With a daytime population of 56,000, including nearly 7,500 calling Downtown home, employees and residents cite walkability, culture, entertainment, restaurants, river access and the city atmosphere as the best things about the Downtown experience.

Excluding water, Downtown makes up just 0.4% of Duval County yet generates almost 3% of the county’s taxable value. Downtown Jacksonville offers unique opportunities unmatched by other major Florida cities, and investors are taking note. Since the beginning of 2021, $500 million in projects have been completed. Additionally, $1 billion in projects are under construction, and another $658 million are proposed. 

All of Downtown now falls under a singular Commercial Central Business District (CCBD) zone to allow for a dense mixture of uses, while eight distinct districts offer unique histories, amenities and senses of place. 

We invite you to see why Downtown Jacksonville is unmatched in opportunity and learn the ways we can support your investment in Downtown.
