Did you see this recent article in the Sun, “UF buffing up Innovation Square to spur development”? It’s a great piece that demonstrates the momentum that we’ve been talking about with our friends and colleagues.
That momentum will work to assist UF in achieving preeminence and it will lift greater Gainesville up, beyond being a college town, to become a premier university city.
"Innovation Square is an important part of UF’s drive to preeminence. In order to compete with the universe of innovation districts around the country, UF enlisting JLL and Front Street will enable the message of Innovation Square to be spread to the potential users and developers who will find value in creating something at one of the country’s premier research universities." - Lee Nelson, director, Office of Real Estate, University of Florida.
Opportunity is knocking for businesses that can benefit from close proximity to a major research university. Needless to say, we’re excited to be a part of this local project with global reach.
With UF, JLL and Front Street all working together we can’t help but feel like anything is possible. Renovations to 720 at Innovation Square are already underway in the lobby and we’re hard at work with the existing office space, connecting companies with growing opportunity at Innovation Square.
“This isn’t a passive effort," noted Keith Crutcher, Managing Director of Front Street Property Management. "We’re actively working with everyone involved, including prospect businesses, to maximize the potential for this prime location.”
If you look around, you’ll see that there’s a lot happening in greater Gainesville. Change is inevitable, but it can happen to you or you can make it happen. We chose the latter.
Front Street has a great team working on 720 at Innovation Square, but it’s the synergy we achieve, working with others on a shared goal, that will truly bring Gainesville to the next level. We have the chance to rise up as a thriving university city, with districts such as Innovation Square where we can live, work and play. That’s what we want for our community and why we’re working to make it happen.
Of course, working with UF and JLL to usher in the next chapter for Innovation Square is just part of what we’re doing to help guide our community. We’re specialized, connected and INVESTED, and absolutely positive that working together, we can achieve more for the place we call home.
The momentum is building and we want you to be a part of it. Keep it going by telling your friends about how exciting it is in greater Gainesville; just click the share button below. For more information on this listing, click here.
