Downtown Residential

More People Living Downtown

Riverwalks and bridge loops offer scenic views and unique exercise opportunities. Diverse housing options fill historic buildings, and new construction offers luxury amenities. Numerous dining, culture and entertainment offerings are walkable. Centrally located, Downtown provides quick access to Interstates 10 and 95, and 22 miles of beaches are a 20-minute drive away.

The number of residents in Downtown Jacksonville has nearly doubled in the past five years and is set to double again. This demand for the lifestyle is driving residential growth, putting Downtown on track to quickly surpass 10,000 residents. Currently, the projected growth means Downtown’s 7,500-plus residents will grow to more than 16,000 people calling Downtown home. 

Residents cite entertainment and events, culture, restaurants, city living/atmosphere and walkability as top reasons they enjoy living Downtown.
