San Marco- San Jose.....

 

San MarcoOne of the city's most desirable places to live, San Marco is seeing a mini housing boom of its own.

Home Street Lofts on Hendricks Avenue offers luxury loft apartments in the converted, historic building that once housed a seminary. These lofts offer charming brick interior walls, 12-to-19 foot ceilings and exposed beams all within walking distance of great jobs, exquisite dining and the St. Johns River.

Venture further into San Marco and you find an eclectic mix of architectural styles and uses. Whether you're looking for expansive riverfront homes, quad-style apartments or historic bungalows, you'll find it in San Marco.

Shopping in San MarcoIn the heart of San Marco lies some of the city's best shopping and dining around San Marco Square, which is guarded by the ornately-designed bronze lion sculptures on the square. Named after the Piazza di San Marco in Venice, Italy, San Marco is an established neighborhood that has it all.

Huge changes are underway in San Marco as the St. Joe Company and Regency Centers, two Jacksonville-based companies, team up to develop one for the largest mixed-use developments ever in Jacksonville history. Plans call for developing a four-block area along Atlantic Boulevard and Hendricks Avenue and building luxury apartment homes, condos and commercial space to create a pedestrian-friendly center.

This six-story development will offer 35-two and three-bedroom townhomes and condos and another 125 one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units, parking garages and ample parking. Space is also being set aside for a 30,000 square foot grocery store and another 27,000 square feet of retail space.

Epping ForestTravel south along Hendricks Avenue from San Marco and you come to the aria known as San Jose, home of the riverfront community of Epping Forest. The center piece of Epping Forest is the expansive 15,000 square foot building originally built as the summer home for magnate Alfred Il DuPont. With 58 acres, Epping Forest includes a yacht club, a fitness center and walking paths.
