Greystone Luxury Apartments

Project: Greystone Luxury Apartments
Location: Gainesville, Florida
Owner: Trimark Properties
Project Size: 28,409 SF
Completion: July 2013

Located in the College Park / University Heights Redevelopment Area (Gainesville CRA), Greystone Luxury Apartments is one of the many luxury student apartments in Gainesville, FL developed by Trimark Properties. The project is located on a 2/3 acre parcel, which had five dwelling units, three of which remained as part of the project. The two new buildings are wood frame construction with structural steel and are clad with a mix of stone veneer and cementitious lap siding, and feature an architectural shingle roof. Eleven covered parking spaces are located below the second floor units, accessible from SW 9th Street, along the building’s east elevation.

The project had a very tight construction schedule (305 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 congested roads (SW 7th Avenue / SW 9th Street) to the north and east, an alley to the south, a neighbor to the west, and 3 dwelling units on-site.
