A muted pipeline has pushed vacancies to record lows in West Side, helping to contribute to the heightened rent growth throughout much of the cycle. Similar to the North Side Submarket, West Side is a logistics and distribution center in Jacksonville. This has produced a large sector of blue-collar workers that are employed by many of the industrial tenants on the West Side.
Centrally located in the Jacksonville market, West Side benefits from being near neighboring submarkets with major corporate hubs. Southside Submarket’s major employers like Deutsche Bank are within a roughly 30-minute drive of the West Side Submarket. The Naval Air Systems Command’s Fleet Readiness Center Southeast is located at Jacksonville’s Naval Air Station (NAS Jax). With about 3,000 civilian employees, 1,000 military personnel, and 1,000 contractors, the center is the largest industrial employer in northeast Florida and one of the largest employers in Jacksonville. Median income in the submarket stands around
$50,000/year, slightly below the metro average. However, West Side contains Jacksonville’s wealthiest neighborhood, Ortega, located along the St. John’s River near Downtown. Outside of this neighborhood, higher incomes are positioned near I-295 and the Henry H Buckman Bridge, which provides residents with ease of access to the city’s largest employment nodes.
