Infinity Hall to Create Infinite Student Creativity

The new Infinity Hall on 2nd Ave. will be the first academic residential community of its kind in Gainesville. The building is five stories, 97,000 sq. ft., and contains 312 beds for innovation academy students. The innovation academy community will feature new entrepreneurial opportunities, encouraging an environment that allows UF students to commercialize their inventions. Infinity Hall is located at a convenient location in innovation square, which allows easier access to local entrepreneurs.

In addition to four residential floors, the building will include meeting rooms, an entertainment room, and an open space on the ground floor organized to inspire new ideas. Infinity Hall residents will have access to design equipment, including 3D printers, laser cutters, and metal milling machine. Students will benefit from the university’s innovative resources and the facility’s “live-learning concepts.”

The key to building such a successful project was due to an honorable partnership between the University of Florida and Signet Development. Signet developed and financed Infinity Hall, and will own and manage the property at the project’s completion. Construction began in March, 2014, and a year later, workers reached the structure’s full height. The project’s expected completion date is this summer on July 31, 2015.
