Jacksonville (Southside) Real Estate
Southside is the area of Jacksonville east and south of the St. Johns River, north of the Mandarin neighborhood, inland from the Intracoastal Waterway, and south of Arlington. The new 9A expressway and Gate corridor spawned many new residential communities including condominiums, townhouses and apartments which have attracted many young professionals, making the Southside a fast growing part of town.
One of the Southside’s many assets include the University of North Florida, recently rated the Southeast’s best value in education. The university brings 15,000 students to the area. Playgrounds, ball fields, and hiking and biking trails are enjoyed by the residents, within one of the most extensive park systems in the nation.
The newer modern residential communities with rich amenities, great shopping, dining, and entertainment create a very attractive lifestyle for people of all ages. And the schools and recreation areas make the Southside attractive to young families.
