Bass Pro Shops Groundbreaking at Celebration Pointe

Front Street was honored to attend the groundbreaking for Bass Pro Shops at Celebration Pointe! The event was held on-site at Celebration Pointe on Thursday, April 14th. Representatives from the project and the community came out to support this exceptional project that's sure to change the face of Gainesville as we know it. 

Occupying approximately 225 acres at the Northwest quadrant of Interstate 75 and Archer Road, Celebration Pointe will encompass outlet retail, restaurant, office, residential, hotel, an entertainment stage, town center, open green space and direct access to the Archer Braid Trail. Future phases will include the development of additional residential units, outparcels and office space. 

The first phase is set to open in Fall of 2016. Anchor tenants include Bass Pro Shops and Regal Cinemas. Hotel Indigo will serve as Celebration Pointe’s premier hotel, with 137 rooms and InfoTech will open its world headquarters with 200+ office employees. Nearly 1,000 luxury apartment units are being programmed. 100 acres of the project are also being set aside as permanent conservation areas.
