Local government and private businesses are coordinating their efforts to revitalize Gainesville. Three distinct areas, approximately 91 acres total, will be renovated. Innovation Square will be a multifunctional area that will combine the convenience of working, living and finding entertainment on Southwest Second Avenue. Another area located on Southeast Fourth Avenue will be called the Power Center. A third area, aptly named Depot Park, will include a renovated train station, a playground, a museum and other recreational activities.

Those involved in the projects and pushing for their advancement feel that the revitalization will take some time, but they are confident that it will become a reality. Other recent projects, such as new apartment buildings, the new Criminal Justice Center, and the growing downtown center of Santa Fe College, make these new projects look promising. Many private businesses, including Trimark Properties and Gateway Development services, support the projects and feel confident that the redevelopment of these areas will attract people who want to live, work and ultimately become consumers in these areas. The influx of businesses should increase available jobs in Gainesville and entice residents of all ages.

The revitalization is likely to increase the population in these areas of Gainesville, as well as improve commerce. If you are considering starting or purchasing a business in the Gainesville area, the redevelopment may help you to attract customers.  Our attorneys at the Law Office of Knellinger, Jacobson & Associates have years of experience in business law.
