Northeast Florida and Jacksonville: Unlimited opportunity in a dynamic, fast-growing region.
Businesses and industries looking to grow recognize Northeast Florida as one of the fastest growing regions in the U.S. Jacksonville serves as the vibrant hub of the seven-county region of Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns. A flourishing international trade center and global transportation hub, Jacksonville is a young dynamic city offering an unbeatable location, a pro-business environment, and an abundant, culturally diverse and skilled labor force. Business thrives in the Jacksonville region with the strong support of communities and government leaders dedicated to economic development and job creation. Jacksonville offers the ideal combination: low cost of living and high quality of life. It’s a place where business and pleasure blend beautifully. Rapidly emerging as a leading corporate destination, Northeast Florida is the right choice for logistics, manufacturing, aviation and distribution.
The best choice for life.
The Jacksonville region’s population of 1.5 million is growing at twice the national rate, and it’s no wonder. Sitting on the St. Johns River, just 16 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, Jacksonville is a regional water paradise where 90 miles of beaches are just the beginning: Enjoy exciting sports at every level, college to pro; approximately 70 golf courses and America’s largest urban park system; plus terrific museums and richly satisfying shopping, dining and nightlife; nationally recognized health care (home to one of only three Mayo Clinics) and excellent neighborhoods and schools.
The best location for business.
Jacksonville’s strategic Northeast Florida location means unparalleled global access through both a deep water port and a prime position at the crossroads of three major railroads, three major highways and four airports. Add to these logistical assets a strong manufacturing base, a young dynamic workforce with 21st century skills and more than $317.5 million in infrastructure and utility improvements. The result: An industrial center leading in global quality, speed and access. There is no better place to leverage those advantages than Cecil Commerce Center™, an industrial development offering huge opportunity in more than 4,700 available acres, shovel-ready sites, and multimodal connections that put domestic and global markets within easy reach.
