The Strand is one of the most exciting new places to live in downtown Jacksonville. This 28-story, 295 condominium residences offers a sophisticated lifestyle at an incomparable value that provides it all. Life on the river. The best the city has to offer in entertainment, shopping and dining within walking distance. Nearly all of the residences have views of the St. Johns River.
The Strand features 14 creatively designed floorplans, including one-, two- and three-bedroom residences. Chic metropolitan decor reflects The Strand's vibrant city setting and its dazzling city views. Kitchens are contemporary with cherry Shaker cabinets and some glass- accent cabinets, all with brushed-nickel pulls. Kitchens feature General Electric appliances. Master bathrooms also feature cherry cabinetry and 42-inch soaker tubs. Floors throughout the residences are ceramic tile and carpeted.
The building boasts an impressive grand entry and two-story lobby with striking river and city views from vast windows. Off the lobby, a library with equally stunning views and a cozy fireplace provide an opportunity to relax. One of the building's most exciting features is a resort-style lounge deck, pool and spa overlooking the St. Johns River, the Main Street Bridge and downtown Jacksonville. A state-of-the-art fitness center keeps fitness enthusiasts inspired with sweeping views of the river and downtown during workouts. Other amenities include men's and women's locker rooms, sauna, steam and massage room, club room with billiards and coffee bar, business center and conference room, 24-hour concierge service, covered controlled-access parking and controlled-access entry.
The Strand is just east of the Main Street Bridge on Jacksonville's Southbank, with the great eateries, nightlife and shopping of fashionable San Marco just outside its door. Neighborhood restaurants are the best the city has to offer, including Morton's, Ruth's Chris, bb's, Bistro Aix, The Wine Cellar, Pom's Thai Bistro and Matthew's, just to name a few. The shops of San Marco Square, from high fashion to humidors to housewares, offer something for everyone.
Situated on the Riverwalk, The Strand is convenient to the downtown water taxi and skyway. In addition to the dining, boutiques and watering holes of San Marco, The Strand puts the cultural attractions, events and sporting venues of the city within easy reach. Whether it's a Jaguars game at EverBank Stadium, special showing at Jacksonville Museum of Modern Art or The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, drinks at The Jacksonville Landing, antiquing in Avondale or an event at The Florida Theatre, there's plenty to keep a social calendar full and exciting.
And there's even more. The Museum of Science and History, Theatre Jacksonville, The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, The Times-Union Performing Arts Center, Jacksonville Public Library, Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena and the San Marco Theatre provide many diversions.
The Strand is part of American Land Venture's St. John's Center, which also includes The Peninsula, a 234-unit luxury condominium tower with an anticipated completion of winter 2007. The Peninsula will feature retail space for shops and a restaurant. The two buildings will be connected by an outdoor courtyard featuring an integrated series of fountains and water features. The public space will include a covered plaza along the riverfront. A 75-slip marina on the St. Johns River also will be built handling vessels up to 100 feet. The result will be a waterfront urban neighborhood that enhances and promotes an active city lifestyle.
