Another apt. complex in the works in Gainesville

By Ken Stanford Reporter
GAINESVILLE - Plans are in the works for another apartment complex in Gainesville, the second to come to light in less than a month. In addition, a new assisted living facility is also on the drawing board.

Swann Drive Villas, LLC, plans a 26-unit apartment complex on 3.4 acres on Swann Drive near Pearl Nix Parkway.

The site now contains four mobile homes which will be removed, according to the applicant, whose rezoning and annexation requests will be heard by the Gainesville Planning & Appeals Board May 13 at 5:30 at the city Justice Center on Queen City Parkway.

Earlier this month, plans were revealed for a 90-unit apartment complex in Midtown across from the city's public safety complex/justice center.


Beehive Homes of Gainesville is proposing a 38-bed assisted living home on two acres on South Enota Drive near Enota Circle.

According to the rezoning application, it would be constructed in two phases: 19 beds for assisted living residents and 19 beds for "memory care" residents.

This application, too, is scheduled to be considered by the planning and appeals board on May 13.
