Strand and Peninsula height

Recommended Posts

I was checking Auchter site and accidently looking in pictures noticed that Strand is actually 27 floors ON TOP of garages and lobby.

I wonder if this is accurate or maybe mistake in drawing,you can count roughly floors and they come up to 27 ,same with Peninsula which I got something like 30+ floors but drwaing is under angle so it can hide other floors.

The Peninsula:

2 floors of mezzanine

7 floors of garage

27 floors of residence

36 total just as it's supposed to be.

The Strand is 28 as it's supposed to be.

I do think they just goofed on the identities as many web sites are not actually run by their company but a 3rd party and errors like this are somewhat common online.

So the Peninsula will be a few feet taller than the Riverplace Tower?!

It looks like Auchter is relatively new to the residential tower market. That entire skyline is commercial.

Jacksonville is relatively new to the residential tower market. Nearly our entire skyline is commercial!!! ;) (Before Berkman, we didn't have a single residential over 200ft.)

^ Good point

I wonder why they have pretty much remained in the Jax market? The only tower I see out of the area is the 1500 building they are building in Miami.

Of course, I would much rather them focus on Jax instead of getting distracted with out of town projects.

That will be truly awesome seeing the Peninsula, a residential tower, standing toe to toe and/or challenging and surpassing Riverplace Tower in height. Two monoliths on the Southbank! WOW!

Add the 3 35 story towers and 2 28 story towers from the SanMarco Riverwalk Village and the 48(?) story tower(s) at Riverpointe and Southbank will rival Northbank.

In my opinion it will surpass the Northbank, not in number of towers but in density and number of talls.

Just for opinions sake, Im really not too fond of the massive garage under the peninsula. I think the red brick color makes it stand out too much and it takes away from the actual tower portion of the building. Jus my thoughts :whistling:

The only density measure it will soon surpass is population. The Northbank is and should always remain more dense in all other aspects.

Yeah, but the land area available for these monoliths to be constructed on the Southbank is extremely small and limited; therefore, you will have more skyscraper density, crowded skyscrapers (judging on what's already planned and proposed), for the amount of land available to host these talls.
