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.

- Site Work Beginning for Bridge over I-75Celebration Pointe has begun site work on a five-lane, $12 million bridge that will span I-75 and feature a dedicated mass transit lane. Once complete in 2016, it will connect the neighborhood to the most significant points of interest throughout the Gainesville-Ocala region.
- Hotel Indigo Bringing Boutique Style to GainesvilleBoutique chain Hotel Indigo will open a 120-room property in the middle of Celebration Pointe. The InterContinental Hotel Group’s banner will bring a unique style to a neighborhood that has garnered attention for its urban style, pedestrian friendly atmosphere and abundant green space.
- Bass Pro Shops to Anchor Celebration PointeThe outdoor retailer Bass Pro Shops is coming to Gainesville, opening an 80,000-square-foot anchor at Celebration Pointe. Their latest location will sit amongst more than 100 acres of permanent conservation area along the western portion of the Celebration Pointe property.
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.
Boasting a half mile of frontage on I-75, the 225-acre Celebration Pointe development presents a compelling combination of demographic strength and outstanding access, located in the heart of Gainesville-Ocala’s most successful retail corridor and surrounded by North Florida Regional and UF Health Shands Hospitals, which employ more than 14,000 people.
