Corner Lot and JTA Break Ground on Transit Oriented Artea at the Southbank Multifamily Development


Corner Lot and the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) broke ground today on Artea at Southbank, a new $93 million transit-oriented urban multifamily development located in Downtown Jacksonville’s urban core. Designed for an urban professional lifestyle with private workspaces, weekday happy hour service, and Ori Living Pocket Offices, Artea is conveniently located close to the JTA Skyway and provides convenient access to downtown employment centers, sporting events, dining, and entertainment venues.

“We’re excited to partner with JTA on a transit-oriented development that will bring people, a workforce, and an energetic, vibrant environment to Downtown Jacksonville’s urban core,” said Andy Allen, Corner Lot CEO. “Jacksonville is in the midst of a transformation, and with Artea, the new pedestrian-friendly bridge, and the opening of 1937, San Marco is on fire!”

The four-story Artea will offer 340 luxury apartment homes with studio, one, and two-bedroom floor plans and balconies. External features will include a saltwater pool, clubhouse, 24-hour fitness center, indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge, three courtyards, and a multilevel covered parking garage. Internal amenities will include a modern urban interior design scheme with wood-style flooring, quartz countertops, upgraded stainless steel appliances, front loading washer and dryers, modular closets, and walk-in glass showers.

Aligned with Corner Lot and Corner Lot Living’s mission of responsibly changing the landscape and developing projects that meet the needs of the community, Artea is scheduled to be complete in Summer 2025. The additional residential inventory will help address Jacksonville’s housing deficit and meet the strategic regional vision of Downtown welcoming 10,000 new residents. Other Corner Lot transit-oriented developments include Johnson Commons in historic LaVilla, Jones on Hogan in Downtown’s Urban Core, and Corner and Main in historic Springfield
