This project turned out beautifully.  Not to plug, but I will:

3 Peninsula Units available for rent, high floors and exquisite views.

Varying sizes and prices available.  Message me if you are interested or if you know anyone interested in this  Southbank tower.  As people continue to move in, I think this area will become a great urban neighborhood in Jacksonville.

I'm surprised they went with carpet in the units.

Also, just an FYI.  Many of the units in the building don't have carpeting everywhere.  Owner's had significant options for upgrades including marble, tile, hardwoods, and varying carpet types.

I am doing some contracting work right now inside the peninsula around the 30th floors. the photos don't do justice to the downtown views of Jacksonville. IT is sooo  great, especially during lunch break when I get to sit on the balcony and watch all the cars on I -  95, the Main bridge, seeing the landing and etc. Or just opening the door to the place and seeing all of downtown, right down the hall. The location is really good too, a few steps from the Chart House, few steps from Ruth Chris, this place is bound to be successful.

It would have been nice if Mortons had been part of a structure of this size. I hate that building every time I drive by it. Imagine if it had been part of a highrise hotel.

Well, it's a start. Residences - check. Workplaces - check. Entertainment destinations - need more.

I looked into these, as well as the Strand when they were briefly for sale and Berkman.  Here's the issue - the typical HOA fees are between 33 and 50 cents per sqFt, depending on the development.  Do the math - 1,000 sqft, between $330 and $500 a month.  That's a lot of wood.

i bought in SMP when these were for sale so I looked into as well.  I know that the bottom floor 1BR with no view of the river at all was going for like $285k.  ridiculously high.

Those are some crazy HOA fees. Does that include property tax? That would make it more reasonable.

Not on the unit itself, it wouldn't.

Absolutely stunning photos.  Didn't seem to be much activity around though; are there residents actually living in it or moving in yet?  It reminds me of a cruise ship on land.  These photos stand out virtually from all others.......great work!!!!!!!  Beautiful building.  A toast to one of the new skyscrapers in the skyline and to the new tallest on the Southbank!  Now let's get the St. Johns built for another new tallest on the Southbank.

Beautiful photos.  I'm so jealous of whoever is moving in there.  What a huge plus for downtown to have another new residential building.  People should be flocking to it and retail shops should be fighting to get space.  And it's complete just in time for football season to begin.  Lucky residents.

I work in the Peninsula. Yes there are people already in there. Mainly affluent people though. Yes there are things to do. It is located between the Chart House and Ruth Chris, across the street there are a bunch of eating places too like Sake House. This place is bound to be a success once it is all complete.

There are a lot of units for sale in the Peninsula and I think prices have come down.  Probably most of these units were bought by investors when the market was hot and now they are hating life. 

Same situation at SMP, but the amenities are not near as nice.  Of course HOA is much lower at SMP.

Lots of renters in the units as the owners pray for a turnaround in the market.
