Villa Riva is a four-acre condo development located on the St. John River in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The 13-story condominium building consists of 64 units above one level of structured parking. Ranging in size from 2,000 to 3,500 sf, plan types include a three-bedroom, three-bath unit; a two-bedroom plus den, 2 1/2 bath unit; and a three-bedroom plus den, 3 1/2 bath unit. A fourth super luxury penthouse unit variation is located at the stepped upper tower levels. All units enjoy terrace decks with sweeping views across the wide expanse of the St. Johns River and the step-back on the 10th through 12th floors creates the opportunity for roof top terraces.
Six 2-story luxury townhomes form the neighborhood edge of the development. The townhomes face the Riverside/Avondale Historic District and their scale, architecture, and materials respond to the design of the existing historic residences nearby. While the primary entries face the development, the front porches respect the urban street presence and link them to their neighbors. The 1,600 sf open plan of the first floor living spaces flows to a large kitchen and attached garage. The 3-bedroom 1,500 sf second floor begins at an open stair and foyer and features a spacious master suite with a deck overlooking the river beyond the condo tower.
