Apartments, Housing, etc.

Developed by University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute Patient Services Department. rev. 8/1/2014.

In this local housing guide, we have identified apartments, condos, houses, hotels, and other accommodations that provide comfortable residences for our patients. The housing options included are listed by their location and convenience to the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute. While there are many other places for you to stay in Jacksonville, we recommend that you first explore availability of accommodations listed here since most have special rates and amenities for our patients.

Please note that we do not arrange housing. This list is merely a guide which we hope you will find useful to locate a suitable place to stay. Please contact the proprietors directly and always tell them you will be treated at the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute to ensure the best rate.

Although we do our best to make sure our current housing information is up-to-date, please note that prices and listing availability are subject to change, and we recommend that you get a written lease. Thank you!

Area One. Near Florida Proton

Downtown & historic neighborhoods close to Downtown
5 - 15 minute commute to Florida Proton

After decades of neglect, restoration to Downtown and its three historic neighborhoods began in earnest less than twenty years ago. Springfield, the last of the three neighborhoods to be fully revitalized, can boast that more than 1,700 of its 1,800 historic homes have been restored, and hundreds of new homes and apartments are being built. Compared to Historic San Marco and Riverside, both of which are all but finished, Springfield and Downtown are still rough around the edges. Of the 25 or so houses and apartments which house our patients, none are in "apartment complexes," and they change regularly.

Historic Springfield (est. 1869)

Springfield is Jacksonville's oldest neighborhood and home of Florida Proton. The entire square mile of Springfield is on the National Historic Register. Mostly restored, preserved and renovated, The Historic District runs roughly from 1st Street (Downtown) to 12th Street, and nine blocks east from Florida Proton's N. Jefferson Street. The University of Florida Medical School, UF & Shands Hospital, Florida Proton, the VA Clinic and Public Health Department sit on a large medical campus in Springfield's northwest corner.

Most Springfield rentals are within a mile of Florida Proton and just a mile or so to downtown restaurants and entertainment, the river, the gym, the sports complex, the main library, etc, which make it a good place to live for many Florida Proton and UF & Shands staff. Reasonable rental rates reflect the neighborhood's residual rough edges and the genuine kindness toward our patients by local residents.

Third and Main Apartments

Located just 1 mile from UF Proton Therapy Institute, these brand new, high-end apartments cater especially to our patients. Thirty-four units of various sizes are furnished with fully equipped kitchens, stainless steel appliances, flat screen televisions, DVD players, satellite TV, wireless Internet, W/D, and comfortable, new furniture. Amenities include gated parking, fully equipped gym, business center, social room, live-in property manager (listed below), and two cafes on the 1st floor. Third and Main has pet friendly options as well, and is just 1/2 a mile from a popular dog park.

Downtown offers a top symphony, theaters and museums, pro-football and baseball, major medical facilities, excellent universities and a strong business base.

We have found wonderful housing on the Northbank of the river, close to Florida Proton and great restaurants.

Historic Avondale, Riverside & Ortega

Riverside and Avondale are two of the best restored and prettiest neighborhoods in Jacksonville. On the river, with beautifully detailed houses, gardens on every street, stately churches and schools and spacious parks, it is in every way pleasant. Riverside is also one of the best downtown areas to eat, shop and pick up groceries. Publix Super Market sits in a small shopping area with a variety of restaurants, coffee shops and services like dry cleaner and barber. All this is just down the street from historic "Five Points," the site of even more restaurants, unique and edgy upscale boutiques, a series of beautiful parks and the St. Johns River.

Ortega is on the St. Johns River just south of the historic Riverside and Avondale areas. The neighborhood is bordered by the St. Johns River on the east, the Cedar River on the north and the Ortega River on the west, making it an "inland island." The neighborhood features early 20th century homes and giant, mature oaks. It is almost all residential, with a tiny square known as "Old Ortega" housing a small collection of restaurants, boutiques and pharmacy. The neighborhood is also home to the historic and exclusive Florida Yacht Club and Timuquana Country Club.

Chelsea Lofts

Located just a couple of blocks from Five Points entertainment district, leave your car behind and walk to unique restaurants, shops, cafes, well-groomed parks, the river, theater, museum and more. The Chelsea Lofts is modern in design and features upscale, loft-style units on three stories.

Area Two. South & East of the St. Johns River

15-35 minute commute to Florida Proton

Jacksonville, in terms of square miles, is the largest city in the United States. Fortunately, only a million people live in this large area so, as cities go, it's not overly crowded. The quote "suburbs" of Jacksonville can offer many accommodations patients might be used to. Most of the properties are newer in developed communities. All of the major malls are on the east side of the river including the largest outdoor mall in Jacksonville the "Town Center." If you are a golfer, this is where you want to be. Make sure you look into Deer Creek Country Club and ask about their great monthly membership rate.

Whether you decide to spend your time living at the beach or taking weekend and day trips out to the beach, it's worth the drive at least once.

Area Four. North of Florida Proton

Near Jacksonville International Airport
10-15 minute commute to Florida Proton

Jacksonville's dynamic and efficient airport is north of Florida Proton. This area is also near the cruise ship port, Mayport, The Jacksonville Zoo and Budweiser Brewery. A new outdoor shopping center recently opened off of Airport Drive, on the East side of I-95. A mostly working class area with few frills, the neighborhoods are generally quiet and slower paced than those closer to the city.

Other Places to Stay.

Patients occasionally find seasonal condos at WORLD GOLF VILLAGE down by St. Augustine. The commute is 40 to 45 minutes. But, to play at the King & Bear or the Slammer & Squire, some find the drive worthwhile.

RV Parks

There are three RV/camping parks in the Jacksonville area. All are highly rated in general, and by our patients in particular. Pecan Park and Flamingo Lake are the closest to Florida Proton and are located about 10-15 miles away. Hanna Park is another possibility located near the beach. In order to stay more than two weeks at Hanna Park, you will need a letter from the doctor explaining the reason for an extended stay and will also need to fill out an extended stay form available from the Park that needs to be approved by the Hanna Park board. This might be something you want to get worked out the first two weeks of your stay so you have no problems after the two weeks are up.
