The District - Well Lived will be developed on the 28.6-acre site of the former JEA Southside Generation Station. The project is being designed by Boston-based Elkus Manfredi Architects. Major urban developments designed by Elkus Manfredi include Downtown Disney, Miami Worldcenter and West Palm Beach’s Cityplace.
Located in the Southbank, it will be accessible from Prudential Drive and Kings Avenue. Access will be enhanced with the completion of the I-95 Overland Bridge project in 2017. This project will include a new full I-95 interchange where Kings Avenue, Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway meet.
When complete, the three phase development will feature 1,200 multi-family residential units, 150,000 square feet of retail and 200,000 square feet of office space.
