Jacksonville: A City On The Move


Florida Trend magazine spotlighted the city in a Community Portrait profile, showcasing area's key strengths and assets

The recent Jacksonville Community Portrait in Florida Trend magazine shows the city’s promising signs as it moves to a new era of urban development, business success and long-term sustainability. 

Continued momentum in logistics, financial services, health care and life sciences, manufacturing, tourism and real estate all contribute to the city’s optimism for success. The publication calls these industries the “economic backbone” of the city, along with Jacksonville’s large military presence. It also emphasizes the city’s stable business base that is not dependent on one sector for success.

Florida Trend’s publisher, Andy Corty, commented in his overview, “Jacksonville is a great place to visit – and also a great city in which to live, build a career and raise a family. It’s a city on the move."
