Hopefully, you have all heard by now that the zip code 32204 for Riverside and the 5 Points area has been ranked as the number 6 haven for Millennials in the country. According to RENTcafe.com, our neighborhood is on the same list as Los Angeles, Manhattan, and Portland, Ore. Of course, this is fabulous news for Jacksonville. Traditions Realty was recently contacted as a primary resource by Florida Times-Union for information concerning rentals in Jacksonville’s 32204 zip code. Riverside and Brooklyn are rated 6 in the top trending millennial favorites. RENTCafe.com, a nationwide apartment search website, followed trends for the last 5 years based on the U.S. Census Bureau ACS populations for 2011-16 of the 30 biggest U.S. cities. Why Riverside and Brooklyn? Historic homes, hip restaurants, and breweries helped to create an urban feel in a walkable neighborhood. Landlords began upgrading their units as soon as the rents began to rise. Apartments with old appliances, dated paint colors, and little original appeal were left behind in the new pricing structure. The Riverside Arts Market became a weekly event that drew thousands under the Fuller Warren Bridge for live music, food, organic fruits and vegetable, and artwork. The area has also started making the most of its parks. Memorial Park, located on the St. Johns River, draws different groups of folks for exercise, geocaching, fishing, and picnics. The area has long been known for its diversity in age, economics, education, and race. The millennials come to visit the neighborhood and want to stay.
