ELM Completes Design of RiverTown’s Amenities, Riverfront Park and Phase I of Community


Good things are going on at RiverTown. The environmental design firm of Ervin Lovett Miller (ELM) recently announced it has completed the master plan for Phase I of RiverTown, including the design, construction documents and landscape planning for the community’s amenity center and Riverfront Park. RiverTown is a St. Joe Company community located along more than three miles of the St. Johns River.

Phase I of RiverTown has been designed by ELM to be a walkable residential community with strong ties to the St. Johns River. RiverTown has been created to reflect great Southern neighborhoods of years past with pedestrian friendly tree-lined streets, connected neighborhoods and parks, plazas, river views and recreational amenities.

The planned amenities at RiverTown include an open space trail network throughout the community, all of which lead to the St. Johns River and the community’s Riverfront Park that will be located along the community’s river frontage and accessible to RiverTown residents. The park is planned to feature approximately 58 acres of nature, canopy trees and passive recreational activities, a community dock, fishing pier and waterfront overlook areas. The park is also planned to feature a central event lawn.

An amenity center at RiverTown has been designed to feature a competition pool and a fun pool for families, one championship tennis court with additional tennis courts and play fields. The community’s social club – The RiverHouse – is planned to include more than 1,400 square feet of river view terraces, a 3,450 square-foot clubroom, meeting room, outdoor palm court with bar area, kitchen and restrooms. The RiverTown fitness center is planned to include individual and group fitness areas, pool access, a social director’s office and an approximately 470-square-foot poolside veranda.
