Site work is underway at RiversEdge: Life on the St. Johns, a development of homes, retail, restaurants and public park space on the Southbank of Downtown Jacksonville.

After roughly eight years, two project name changes and a new developer, construction finally is underway on one of the largest residential, retail, office and public space developments on the Southbank of downtown Jacksonville.

Preston Hollow Community Capital is leading the much-anticipated, resort-like development of RiversEdge: Life on the St. Johns — previously known as The District: Life Well Lived and before that, Healthy Town.

The project calls for 950 residential units, 147 hotel rooms, 200,000 square feet of office space, 134,000 square feet of retail, a 125-slip marina and more than four acres of public park space.
