Welcome to Downtown Jacksonville!
Great cities have great Downtowns. Since 2000, nearly $2 billion in Downtown development projects have been completed. In 2013 alone, nearly $10 million in development projects were completed, with another $470 million under construction.
Downtown Jacksonville serves as a hub of community life for nearly one million people. It offers an ever important location for people from all walks of life a welcoming destination to meet and enjoy concerts, parades, special events, and the marvelous St. Johns River. It is truly the economic, social, and cultural hub of Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida region.
Jacksonville’s commitment to the arts happens Downtown. Our cultural centers include the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts, the Museum of Contemporary Art, LaVilla School for the Arts, the Museum of Science and History, the Florida Theatre, and the Ritz Theater, as well as popular galleries and immediate neighbors Cummer Museum and the Riverside Arts Market are all essential elements of civic life.
