Those who choose to live/work at The Lofts San Marco have the best of both worlds: proximity to Jacksonville’s burgeoning urban center and a location in one of the city’s most popular destination neighborhoods. The Lofts are within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and entertainment venues in revitalized San Marco Square, a landmark fashioned after the Piazza San Marco in Venice. The Kings Avenue Skyway Station is convenient as well, providing a quick monorail ride across the St. Johns River to the heart of downtown Jacksonville.
The Lofts offers unparalleled advantages, minutes from Downtown Jacksonville, Jaguar Stadium, and the Riverside/Avondale neighborhoods and restaurants. The San Marco Library and Southside Tennis Center, with lighted clay and hard courts, are just blocks away. JIA and the Beaches are each less than 20 miles away.
San Marco has a number of parks of various sizes and purposes; the San Marco Preservation Society lists fourteen within its boundaries. There are two more in the Southbank: Treaty Oak Park, home of one of Jacksonville’s oldest live oaks, and Friendship Fountain Park. Other amenities on the Southbank include the Museum of Science and History (MOSH) and the Southbank Riverwalk. San Marco is served by an elementary school, a middle school, and the Southside Branch Public Library.
