Introducing River City Marketplace
River City Marketplace
Located at I-95 and Airport Rd, River City is within walking distance of a CSX rail line that could be a logical terminal location for a starter commuter rail line. An express bus (perhaps AirJTA) could serve the airport-to-rail corridor with stops at hotels and the marketplace along the way.
While not the mall that developers originally intended, River City Marketplace is still the largest shopping center to be constructed on the Northside and will introduce an array of retail destinations that previously only existed locally across the river or in Orange Park.
When completed, this 425 acre mixed use project, will include a 125 acre shopping district, 900 residential units, 300 hotel rooms, and 133,000sf of light industrial space. The shopping center, developed by Ramco Gershenson, will bring 1.13 million square feet of retail space to the Northside and is expected to attract residents as far north as Nassau County and Georgia.
Announced tenants include Super Walmart, Lowes, Petsmart, Circuit City, Michaels, Old Navy, Office Max, and Wallace Theaters (18 screen megaplex).
