2023 State of Downtown Report
Each year, Downtown Vision tracks and analyzes Downtown’s performance in key indicators of urban revitalization, such as development and investment, residential demand, office market and employment base, transportation enhancements and tourism health to tell the story of Downtown Jacksonville, benchmark trends and support investment efforts.  

The 2023 State of Downtown Report is an 18-month recap of progress and development in Downtown Jacksonville from January 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023, published by Downtown Vision in October 2023.

Corner Lot has four prominent developments that are helping put over 700 heads in residential beds Downtown by the Summer of 2025. Artea at Southbank (pictured above), Johnson Commons, and Jones on Hogan are featured in the report. Corner on Main is just outside of the Downtown districts in historic Springfield. Corner Lot is also bringing one of three new hotels that are currently under construction, in the Home2 Suites by Hilton in Brooklyn, featuring The Players Grille.

Corner Lot Cares
Giving back to our local communities and organizations taking Jax to the Max is one of the tenants at Corner Lot. This month, we were honored to help three local groups working in different areas. Both the Corner Lot and Fun To Watch teams got to see firsthand the difference they are making.
We attended the annual JAZMYN Coming Out Day Breakfast, the MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation 'Champions for Children' Gala and the Sulbacher Center's 'Transformations' fundraiser. Great work by all of those organizations and the people they are helping.
