Archstone Luxury Apartments

Project: Archstone Luxury Apartments
Location: Gainesville, Florida
Owner: Trimark Properties
Project Size: 26,288 SF
Completion: July 2011

Located in a Community Redevelopment Area, Archstone Luxury Apartments at Southwest 1st Avenue is one of the many luxury student apartments in Gainesville, FL developed by Trimark Properties. The project included construction of two, 3-story luxury student apartment units, off-street parking, and renovations to three existing houses on the property. The new buildings are wood frame construction with architectural shingles, cementitious lap siding, and stone veneer.

The project had a very tight construction schedule (260 days) from the owner’s Notice to Proceed (NTP) and the contractual substantial completion date. Complicating the schedule was a dense, urban in-fill site bounded by narrow two-lane roadways to the south and west, a one lane alley to the north, and a 6’-0” masonry wall at the eastern property line, which was less than 10’-0” from the face of the new building.
