A few facts about Riverplace Tower

Mailing Address
Our new mailing address is 1301 Riverplace Boulevard, Suite 1100, 32207. Because mail is delivered to a central mailroom on the concourse level for daily pick up, we’ll use our new permanent address starting Oct. 14. UPS, Fed Ex and courier deliveries should be made to Suite 1000 while we are working on the 10th floor.

After-hours building access
To enter Riverplace Tower before 6 a.m. or after 6 p.m., you must sign in at the security desk on the first floor. They will walk with you to the elevator and swipe a key card that will take the elevator to the 10th floor, or they will escort you to the floor.

Security escorts after hours

Riverplace Tower typically has two security officers on duty at all times. If you’d like an escort to your car after hours, simply make your request at the security desk in the lobby. You might have to wait a few minutes for a guard to return, but you will be escorted to your car, whether you’re parked in the garage or the surface lot.

Smoking areas
Riverplace Tower is a smoke-free building but smoking is allowed on the Riverwalk behind the building, on the front sidewalk or across the street.

Food
The tower features two options where you can grab a quick bite or snack: the Southbank Grille and YCT, a sandwich/sundry shop. Both are on the concourse level. Look for food reviews of both in the near future.

Elevators
Riverplace Tower has 8 elevators. It takes 33.87 seconds to get from the lobby to the 11th floor.

Riverplace Tower structure
Riverplace Tower has 28 floors, is 433 feet tall with 420,000 square feet of Class A office space. Construction started in 1966 and completed the following year. It was the tallest building in Florida until 1972 and the tallest building in Jacksonville until the Independent Life building (now the Wells Fargo Center) was built in 1974.

The tower doesn’t have interior columns; its structural support consists of the central core and the columns and beams outside the building. Each side of the building has two exterior vertical columns and horizontal beams that cantilever 42 feet to the building’s corners where glass meets glass, without column or wall.
