Corner Lot Breaks Ground on
Corner on Main Multifamily Development in Historic Springfield
Corner Lot was joined by their partners, a Jacksonville City Councilmember, and representatives from Springfield Preservation and Revitalization on Thursday in celebrating the groundbreaking for Corner on Main, a new urban multifamily development in historic Springfield.
“Corner on Main is a testament to our love for Springfield and our investment in the project is an indicator of our confidence in the neighborhood’s future.” said Andy Allen, Corner Lot CEO. “It’s going to bring a vibrancy to the area that will inspire more progress and redevelopment while also supporting current businesses, restaurants, and nightlife.”
Located at 1100 North Main Street, Corner on Main will occupy a four-acre parcel between 1st Street and 2nd Street at an intersection widely considered to be the Gateway to Springfield. Once complete, the four-story, Class A mixed-use urban development will include 202 market-rate studio, one bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments, ranging from 622 to 1,241 square feet, with more than 6,000 square feet of commercial space to accommodate retail or restaurant tenants. Community amenities include balconies, 24-hour fitness center, two resort-style pools, a courtyard, outdoor poolside workspaces, a modern multi-purpose clubroom, a private conference room, business workspaces, and a fully-screened parking garage with 304 parking spaces.

Luxury interior amenities will include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, designer cabinetry, tiled kitchen backsplashes, full-size washer and dryer, wood style flooring, and spacious walk-in closets. Premium apartments will offer Ori Living Pocket Office technology, electronic keyless entry, and open-concept floor plans. The transit-oriented development is located in close-proximity to the UF Medical Complex, Jacksonville’s much-anticipated Emerald Trail, Klutho Park, and the restaurants and nightlife of Springfield and Downtown Jacksonville. Corner Lot secured a loan from Vystar Credit Union for the project debt and First Coast Real Estate Partners is providing the equity. Summit Contracting Group, Inc. is the general contractor and Bold Line Design, LLC is the project architect. The development is scheduled to be complete in Spring 2025.
