Hallmark Partners revealed today the design for Beacon Riverside, a luxury condominium tower on the St. Johns River in historic Riverside. The planning, design and construction teams for the building are comprised of members that created the Villa Riva Condominiums and 220 Riverside residential projects in the Riverside neighborhood.
The building embodies the rich traditions of Riverside architecture refined to reflect an updated design with modern features and amenities. Located at 500 Bishopgate Lane, the 16-story building will feature 56 exclusive for-sale residences ranging in price from $600,000 to $2 million. The 2,100 to 4,000-square-foot luxury residences will showcase ten-foot ceilings and spacious terraces offering expansive views of the St. Johns River, the downtown skyline as well as city views of historic Riverside. Private elevators will access upper floor penthouses that will be designed with individual owner input.

Jeff Conn, Co-Founder and Principal of Hallmark Partners, has been appointed chairman of the advisory board for University of Florida's Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies in Gainesville, Florida. The center's mission is to build the best higher education real estate program in the country by focusing on education, research and leadership. The program is recognized each year by US News and World Report as one of the top 10 real estate schools in the US. Each year the program graduates 30 to 35 students who have completed an intense ten-month, in-residence graduate program.
