Southside, home to The UNF

The Southside area has recently been spotlighted as the latest up and coming sections of Jacksonville.  Development has remained very strong in many areas of Southside. Most noted would be The Saint Johns Town Center (a multiplex of retail, business, restaurants and luxury living) for those who enjoy an urban feel with virtually unlimited access to all of your shopping and lifestyle needs. Tesla Motors is planning to open a showroom here! This is one of the latest expansion initiatives that continue to define Saint John's Town center as a leading edge central retail and business center.

This area continues to grow with many new projects that are slated for development for 2016 and beyond.

Additionally, many business parks and regional hubs have opened in the area making it a draw for businesses and employees who desire the mix of working/ living lifestyle.

As a result of the many business parks, countless rental communities and condominiums have been built during the past several years to accommodate the growing demand to reside and work in this area.

Southside is also home to The University of North Florida's main campus.  UNF now considered one of Florida's leading schools and students from our the county and internally attend the university.  As a result, the area has a thriving student population with both campus housing and multiple apartment communities that were build specifically to accommodate the growth in population as the school has grown.

Lastly, Southside has been an established area of the greater Jacksonville area for decades.  You will easily find housing of all types in this large and diverse section of the city.  Many subdivisions were built in the 1950's-60's as Southside was being developed. 
Today, it is easy to find several of these established communities, most of which are still well maintained. Many buyers seek out older homes like the ones located in Southside as they have a certain character that buyers are looking for.  Their are also some homes that require remodeling and be an excellent investment choice as well. 

Southside is an excellent choice to call home.  Please do not hesitate to call me to learn more.
