Riverside

Riverside, Florida and its adjacent neighbor, Avondale, are deeply intertwined, making it difficult for even locals to tell where one ends and the other begins. Many in the area consider the pair to be one continuous neighborhood rather than two and refer to the entire area as simply, Riverside-Avondale. In 2010, The American Planning Association recognized the community as one of the top 10 neighborhoods in the country. Situated along the banks of the St. Johns River, immediately southwest of downtown Jacksonville, Florida, the neighborhood was originally platted in 1868, from a portion of the Dell’s Bluff Plantation. Jacksonville annexed the property in 1887.

Riverside’s population exploded at the start of the 20th century when The Great Fire Of 1901 destroyed most of downtown Jacksonville, displacing many of its wealthiest residents, who resettled along the banks of the St. Johns River. Among the new residents were many architects with diverse backgrounds and styles, many of whom were hired to design and construct the new mansions, and bungalow plantation homes for downtown Jacksonville’s recently resettled movers and shakers. The architectural mash-up which resulted has become a defining feature of the community and a source of pride for its current inhabitants. It is not uncommon to find grand plantation mansions cozied up next door to modest bungalows with Craftsman, Prairie School, and Colonial Revival styles interspersed throughout the neighborhood.

The Riverside-Avondale Preservation, a non-profit group formed in 1974, works tirelessly to ensure that the unique historic diversity of the area continues to shine and is not diminished by excess urbanization or neglect. The preservation’s advocacy efforts were the catalyst behind the creation of Jacksonville’s first official historic district. Riverside’s Historic District spans 6,870 acres and is home to 2,120 historic buildings. The district was officially added to The National Registry Of Historic Places in 1985. The Riverside-Avondale Preservation has played a large role in providing for the modern sustainability of their shared community. The Riverside Arts Market is an open air market open to the public every Saturday, rain or shine. The market places a strong emphasis on the importance of supporting local vendors by purchasing from within the community instead of ordering goods from elsewhere. Shopper’s can enjoy the ever-changing, diverse variety of products from local artists latest works, to the local farmer’s freshly picked produce. A rotating line-up of local talent adds to the festival atmosphere by providing entertainment for the crowd from the market stage. The 2016 US Census Bureau reports Riverside’s current population is 5,967 residents with a median age of 36 years old. The median income per capita is $40,216, 35% higher than the national average. The population density is significantly higher than average at approximately 2,758 people per square mile. For comparison, Jacksonville has roughly 1,146 people per square mile. As of October 2018, the median home value in Riverside is $232,800, 1% higher than the national average. The average monthly rental cost is $938 is 1% lower than the national average. High population density,reasonable rent, pleasant year round climate, abundant nightlife, and proximity to historic and natural landmarks have all contributed to the district’s robust rental market. The most recent census data reported that 64.3% of Riverside’s population are renters, which is 77% higher than the national average. A property management agency will be able to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current and future rental opportunities available in this vibrant district.

There’s also a low number, under l percent, of residents not fluent in English in contrast to the City of Jacksonville at 3 percent. The neighborhood’s median age of its residents is just over 44, in contrast to Jacksonville’s at 35.7, and is undoubtedly one fact that results in its lower percentage of families with children under 18 at 36 percent, as opposed to that of Jacksonville at 42 percent.

It was also an astonishingly 75 percent lower than the national unemployment rate. The median list price for a home in the neighborhood is $325,000, which amounts to $232 per square foot, and which has shown signs of decreasing. This could be, in part, because the median home value is only $255,900, which is in the middle range of homes in the Jacksonville area. Many upscale homes feature swimming pools of varying designs. Homes remain an average of 92 days on the market. Most of the homes in the neighborhood, however, are rentals; and the median rent is a relatively high $2,600 per month.
