Jacksonville, Fla.—Hines has broken ground on Southside Quarter, located at the intersection of I-295 and J.T. Butler Boulevard in Jacksonville.
The 105-acre, mixed-use development will offer retail, office, and residential space, as well as a hotel, to create a live, work, play environment. Office sites in the first phase include up to two 125,000-square-foot buildings, offering lake views, ample parking and walkability to future residential and retail components.
Southside Quarter will focus on connectivity, walkability, pedestrian-friendly pathways, a central lake amenity and ample green space. Hines is working with RTKL Associates, a local engineering firm, ETM and the City of Jacksonville to develop a master plan that will add character to the existing community.
“With the Quarter, we will create a timeless and true mixed-use destination,” said Lane Gardner, Hine’s Jacksonville-based managing director, in prepared remarks. “It will be the place to be for people, tenants, residents and neighbors to meet, gather, live, work, relax and enjoy life.”
