Kings Avenue Station


Kings Avenue Station was designed to reinvigorate underutilized infrastructure by connecting an established parking garage and transit station to a highly-desirable urban neighborhood to create Jacksonville’s first Transit-Oriented Development (TOD).

For more than a decade, the Kings Avenue Garage and adjacent Jacksonville Skyway System had been virtually unused. Working with the client, city, and transportation authority, ELM created an innovative TOD master plan to transform a vacant parking lot into a vibrant mixed-use infill development, continuing the renewal of an emerging urban neighborhood.

The first phase of the plan consisted of two hotels wrapping a central courtyard and pool.  As the design architect for the hotels, ELM facilitated approvals from the city and transportation authority, and provided site planning and landscape design services.
