Accelerate the Development
of New Ideas
Innovation Square is a 40 acre urban master plan for a modern live/work/play research and innovation community. We plan to develop over five million square feet of office, research, and hi-tech space with residences, retail, hotel and open space that connect the University of Florida with downtown Gainesville. By fusing the private sector with the University of Florida, through access to cutting edge research and information, we intend to create opportunities to collaborate with talented researchers in a place that is recognized for transferring new ideas to the marketplace.
