Jacksonville is the 14th fastest growing city in the country. It’s strategic location, intermodal hub, strong economy, low construction costs and pro-business environment make it one of the most attractive areas in the Southeast. The Port of Jacksonville is well positioned to create major economic growth for the area, and it is currently the leading port in vehicle exports in the United States. The overall industrial market has over 98 million square feet of industrial product within three major submarkets (Airport, Westside, and Southside), which account for 92% of that total.
EastGroup owns approximately two million square feet in Jacksonville, which is equally distributed between the Westside and Southside submarkets. Our Westside customers tend to be more bulk users (some port related) and our Southside tenants tend to be more our core business distribution users who benefit from the close proximity to Interstate 95.
