Front Street Retained as Exclusive Broker for Innovation Square’s Newest Tower

Gainesville-based Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group was appointed today as the exclusive broker to market Infusion Technology Center by developer Trimark Properties. Infusion is a proposed 150,000 square foot office tower and the first private development in Innovation Square.

“We are very proud to be a part of this dynamic project” said Nick Banks, Managing Director of Front Street. “Innovation Square has the opportunity to change the business landscape in Gainesville by fostering job growth and innovation right at the doorstep of the University of Florida. Infusion Technology Center is the first private development in Innovation Square, and enables us to create awareness for all that Gainesville and the project have to offer both emerging and established companies.”

Front Street competed with several local and national brokerages in winning the Infusion assignment. According to John Fleming, Managing Partner for Trimark, “We chose Front Street as our marketing partner because they are local, they are specialized and they offer access to decades of relationships with brokers and other industry professionals throughout the southeast.”

Infusion Technology Center is in the planning and approval stages, and will break ground in late 2012. The Class “A” office tower’s site is adjacent to the recently completed Innovation Hub, which was developed by the University of Florida. Infusion will include space for office, high-tech wet and dry labs, research, bio-med facilities and a retail / restaurant component on the ground floor. Front Street will market spaces at Infusion for sale or lease.

Innovation Square is a public-private partnership between the University of Florida Development Corporation and private developers such as Trimark. Located between the university and downtown Gainesville, Innovation Square will encompass, upon completion, in excess of five-million square feet on 40-acres.
