UF Health Shands Hospital
Stable sources of employment (University of Florida, state government, University Health Care) make Gainesville less susceptible to economic downturns.
The University of Florida
75,000 students from University of Florida and Santa Fe College will spend an estimated $63 million in Gainesville on apparel this year.
Forefront of Technology
Gainesville’s Innovation Hub is driving growth in professional and business sectors, creating nearly 6,000 new jobs in the next five years. Celebration Pointe will be home to the new 60,000 square foot InfoTech headquarters.
Gainesville is growing as a tourist destination, as evidenced by 5.6% growth in the leisure and hospitality industries. Five million annual visitors to University of Florida events spend $233 million annually in Gainesville.
Along Intersate 75
Celebration Pointe sits on nearly one mile of frontage bordering the western edge of Interstate 75, which boasts traffic counts of some 114,000 cars a day. Celebration Pointe’s location west of I-75 puts it in easy reach of the most advantageous neighborhoods: west of I-75 is critically underserved by retail and has the highest population growth, household spending and income in Gainesville.
Bridge over Interstate 75
A new overpass will make Celebration Pointe more connected to all Gainesville traffic, including vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic via the Archer Braid Trail.
Celebration Pointe will center around an energized “Main Street”. The project is located immediately adjacent to a 700 acre open-space conservancy which includes access to Archer Braid Trail, a 6.2 mile walking & biking trail.
Bass Pro will open in Fall 2016, followed by Info Tech, Hotel Indigo and a second office tower. The remainder of the Main Street retail is scheduled for a Fall 2017 opening. Hotel Indigo will serve as Gainesville’s premier hospitality destination; with 137 rooms and located in the center of an invigorated Main Street, hotel guests will enjoy dining, entertainment and shopping at their fingertips. Software giant, Info Tech, will open its world headquarters at Celebration Pointe with over 200 employees enjoying a state of the art office building and amentities.
Future phases include additional Class-A office, luxury residential, and active adult living.
