• Celebration Pointe Holdings, LLC presents a unique and innovative mixed-use project in the heart of Gainesville, Florida—recently named the number one city on the rise in the nation by nerd wallet. Celebration Pointe is poised to become something extraordinary: a regional destination in a city where the retail landscape has been longing for a true live, work and play environment.

    Building on the success of Alachua County’s award winning Mobility Plan—which has been honored with both the 1000 Friends of Florida Best Communities Award and the Florida Department of Community Affairs Planning Excellence Award—Celebration Pointe offers a dynamic mixed-use environment that is not only Alachua County’s first Green Transit-Oriented Development, but the first project of its kind in the State of Florida.

      Info Tech CEO Dr. Jim McClave: “Our employees are our greatest asset, and Celebration Pointe will provide them with an energy-filled, walkable environment with outstanding retail, restaurants and other amenities literally at our doorstep.”
  • Occupying approximately 225 acres at the intersection of Interstate 75 and Archer Road, Celebration Pointe has begun initial site preparation on what will be comprised of approximately 300,000 square feet of upper-moderate and specialty retail, a significant restaurant and entertainment component as well as Class-A office space. In addition, nearly 1,000 multifamily residential units are being programmed along with a branded hotel. 100 acres of the project are also being set aside as permanent conservation areas.

    Defined by a multi-modal transit-oriented design plan unlike anything else in the market, Celebration Pointe will provide direct access to the University of Florida, UF Health Shands Hospital and downtown Gainesville. The project was conceived to address sustainability and connectivity, while integrating a mix of uses into an urban framework.

    Celebration Pointe will meet the demands of an informed, educated and growing population, providing an economic engine and a lifestyle destination.
