Welcome to the City of South Daytona

Welcome to the City of South Daytona, a small city with big opportunities. The City and its business districts are centrally located in the Greater Daytona area, with easy access to beaches, entertainment venues, hospitals, and educational institutions.  South Daytona is also located near the crossroads of Central Florida’s High-Tech corridor, Interstate 95 and Interstate 4, and within minutes of the Daytona Beach International Airport and the FEC railway line.

The main commercial corridors in South Daytona include South Ridgewood Avenue (U.S.1), Beville Road and South Nova Road. South Ridgewood Avenue is located within a Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) and is a designated Opportunity Zone. The CRA and the Opportunity Zone designations provide financial incentives for improving your existing building site or developing new commercial businesses here. We have light industrial sites, including the South Daytona Business Park and Landmark Business Park. There are commercial, retail, and industrial development sites available throughout the City.

New development in South Daytona is on the rise with the completion of a 16-bed Assisted Living Facility in June 2020 and the construction of a 256-unit luxury apartment complex with occupancy of the first residential structure and clubhouse scheduled for October 2020. More development projects are in conceptual and site plan review stage as well. Along with the residential growth, other commercial development is sure to follow.

South Daytona City leaders are committed to economic development to strengthen our economy and improve the quality of life. City staff participates in regional economic development efforts with the Port Orange South Daytona Chamber of Commerce, Team Volusia Economic Development Corporation, and the County of Volusia Department of Economic Development. The primary goals are to retain existing local businesses and bring new businesses to the area in a business-friendly environment.
