For those looking to invest in a new home, Urban Core features a variety of designs to choose from.
Where to Live
As one of the first neighborhoods developed in the city, Urban Core brings out the richest and most opulent architecture in Jacksonville. Most of the residential buildings are single-family, wood-frame houses, containing examples 19th century revival and 20th century bungalow and Mediterranean styles. Laid out along a grid pattern, you’re never too far away from shopping on the Main and Eighth Street commercial centers.
Where to Eat
Main Street is the commercial strip that hosts many of Urban Core’s hotspots. You can get spiced turkey sandwiches from one of the many bars and eateries along the strip, or head over to Eighth Street, where you’ll find endless choices of coffee, pizza, burgers, and other classic favorites. Main Street forms a continuous strip where you can experience more high-end dining.
What You'll See
Younger professionals and retirees generally reside west of Main Street, where majority of the original development sits. Over time, the population has grown younger, with recent college grads moving due to Urban Core’s lower housing costs and more cosmopolitan restaurant options. While it’s not unusual to see the clean-cut look throughout the neighborhood, Urban Core is increasingly skewed toward local musicians and artists looking to practice their craft.
Friday Night Fun
Head to Main Street – the unrivaled social center in Urban Core. Dive bars and independent boutiques abound, and it’s not uncommon to find a local artist hosting a small show in their home. Occasionally, galleries will open their doors to the public, and host internationally renowned artists giving talks on their exhibition.
The Perfect Sunday
Confederate Park is the best place to be on sunny Sunday afternoon. Get a picnic basket and head to the park for a light lunch and beautiful views of the downtown skyline. Living in this community puts you in walking distance to picturesque sidewalk cafés and delicious coffee, where nothing but good conversation and great company abounds.
Historical atmosphere • Locally owned dive bars and coffee shops • Low housing cost.
Locals Don't Love
Low levels of petty theft • Poor public transportation • Vanishing historical presence.
