Riverfront Plaza, formerly the site of the Jacksonville Landing, is an open green space on the bank of the St. Johns River in the heart of Downtown. This space is managed by Jax Parks, the City of Jacksonville’s Parks and Recreation branch and is available for event permitting for large and small events.
The Future of Riverfront Plaza:
On January 20, 2021, the DIA released a Request for Proposal for the selection of qualified design firms and their consultants, who would participate in a design competition for the development of a vibrant and iconic public space on the premier waterfront site in Downtown Jacksonville now dubbed Riverfront Plaza, formerly The Jacksonville Landing. After a seven-month process, a tremendous amount of public engagement and three outstanding designs, the Perkins&Will design team was named winner of the Riverfront Plaza (FKA The Landing) Design Competition. Perkins&Will scored the highest among the final three teams, followed closely by Agency Landscape + Planning and OLIN, respectfully.
