Downtown Jacksonville is home to more than 1,100 businesses, including three Fortune 500 companies.

Downtown workers are as unique as the businesses they support, but they hold at least one thing in common: they are part of companies smart enough to call Downtown home.

Downtown is a great place for business. Among the reasons:

Downtown Jacksonville offers the most affordable Central Business District commercial space in Florida. Rates for retail and office space are also competitive with Northeast Florida suburban locations. And, in addition to a low tax burden, there are a number of state and local incentive programs available.

Downtown is easily accessible from two major interstate highways, a 19-minute drive to the airport and Beaches and offers the most transit options. Nearly 44,000 parking spaces are available Downtown, with monthly rates as low as $15.

84% of Downtown workers reported they like their Downtown workplace, citing Downtown’s vibrancy, authenticity and amenities. There are more than 200 restaurants, bars, retailers and service providers that are walkable in the Downtown core.

An urban environment encourages productivity and a healthy lifestyle. Downtown offers several gyms, nearly three miles of Riverwalk and pedestrian-friendly bridges to help employees keep in shape.

Downtown Vision, Inc.’s website hosts information on available retail space, business incentives, urban developments proposed and under construction, demographics and statistics, and more.

It’s time to be part of Downtown. What are you waiting for? Consider this your invitation.
