Chance Partners Completes Final Phase of Construction at RiverVue
By: Chance Partners
"RiverVue is an exciting multifamily development because it truly reflects what today's consumers want most in a home – both within and beyond the walls of their residence," said Chance Partners Principal Judd Bobilin.
The 228-apartment community combines distinctive townhomes, carriage homes, flats and a 16-story tower in a sophisticated environment that offers onsite resort-style amenities, modern conveniences, unique charm and spectacular views of Downtown Jacksonville and the St. Johns River. The community is more than 60 percent leased in six months.
Phases 1 and 2 centered on the renovation of the former Commander Apartments, built in 1961, and the demolition of the St. Johns Village retail center, developed in 1987. The development team fully renovated the iconic 16-story waterfront tower with 88 studio, one- and two-bedroom residences offering stunning panoramic water views from every residence. The brick and the bones of the tower were intentionally left intact, while new materials, colors and textures were used to highlight the overall coastal chic aesthetic.
The team also built two new four-story buildings with 132 residences, two-story buildings with four townhomes and four carriage homes and a parking garage for residents. The transformation features residences designed with unique character, abundant natural light and today's most sought-after finishes. The team created an elegant community environment that highlights RiverVue's natural beauty accentuated by peaceful and active social spaces, a conservation area and more than 1 acre of open green space.
RiverVue caters to the demands for an amenity-rich living environment by offering onsite amenities that promote a healthy and fun experience for residents. They include a saltwater, beach-entry pool, an outdoor oasis with fire pit, a gazebo, hammocks overlooking the water and an outdoor kitchen with gas grills. RiverVue has a dog park and dog spa, an outdoor yoga lawn with free weekly classes for residents and fishing areas along Fishweir Creek. The RiverVue Athletic Club is equipped with cardio machines, free weights and a Cardio Theatre system. The community has a social lounge, a business center, a cyber café and a bike share program.
"RiverVue offers exceptional residences within a dynamic environment that promotes convenience, fun and wellness," said Chance Partners Principal Jeff Rosen. "The community's setting also promotes walkability to the pedestrian-friendly historic Avondale neighborhood."
Chance Partners has received numerous honors for RiverVue including an Award of Excellence in the Re-use/Re-purpose category from ULI North Florida.
