ABOUT THE COASTAL
The Coastal is a local magazine in Jacksonville, FL, that provides interesting stories and updates on the past, present, and future of the First Coast area. Our popular weekly article series, Building Up Jax, is posted each Saturday and recaps the most significant development news from around the Jacksonville area. Other features include our Jax Evolved article series, where we highlight creative re-uses of historic buildings.
The Coastal was founded in late 2015 by Jacksonville resident Nathan Woods with the goal of providing detailed coverage of everything that makes Jax an amazing city. The magazine launched on December 1, 2015 and has grown steadily since then, reaching hundreds of thousands of Jaxsons and also expanding to offer a paper edition.
