Greenland Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Greenland is a neighborhood in Jacksonville, Florida, conveniently close to the convergence of Interstate 95, Interstate 295, and U.S. Highway 1. A day at the beach is a popular pastime among Greenland area residents, as the coast is just a few miles away to the east. Within five miles to the west is Old Bull Bay.
If you have a passion for fashion, you couldn’t find a much better place to reside than the Greenland area, which is within a half-mile south of four major area shopping centers. The largest of these – The Avenues Mall – offers more than 1.1 million square feet of sophisticated retail space. Anchored by JCPenney, Sears, Forever 21, Dillard’s, and Belk, this indoor mall also offers over 150 specialty stores and several dining options. Southside Square, situated north of The Avenues, offers a Target, Home Goods, Pier 1 Imports, steakhouse, burger joint, and Japanese restaurant. The Shoppes at Southside, located in the middle of these two retail centers, hosts a Best Buy, Sports Authority, David’s Bridal, and Starbucks. Finally, the Avenues Walk, in addition to offering apartment living, features a Wal-Mart Supercenter and a Subway.
Greenland area residents also enjoy close proximity to quality health care, with the Baptist Medical Center South situated roughly two miles to the south along I-95.
As is true of many neighborhoods in Florida, Greenland offers no shortage of natural beauty. In addition to the nearby coast and sparkling bay, Greenland is within 10 miles of several large conservation areas, including Twelve Mile Swamp and Bayard Conservation Area. The Jacksonville Naval Complex is located within 10 miles of Greenland as well, on the other side of Plummers Cove to the west.
