SOUTHEAST: MARCH 2018
URBAN UPDATE – THIS MONTH WE UPDATE THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT OF TALLAHASSEE, WHICH WE DEFINE GEOGRAPHICALLY AS THE AREA WITHIN LEON COUNTY SOUTH OF U.S. HIGHWAY 90 AND EAST OF MONROE STREET OUTSIDE OF THE DOWNTOWN.
The Southeast quadrant of Tallahassee is home to a diverse population with its growth driven by the ongoing development of Southwood and the presence of the city’s primary shopping district surrounding the Governor’s Square Mall and along Apalachee Parkway. Due to the presence of quality employment opportunities along with excellent retail and restaurant venues, this area has emerged as one of the city’s most desirable destinations for living. As a result there is an uptick in residential development, both single family and quality multi-family communities for general population (non-student oriented) and senior-assisted living. This update features a number of brand new and developing apartment communities that are sure to continue the growth of Tallahassee’s population moving forward.
Below you will find snapshots of project progress as of March 2018 and descriptions of the projects below each image along with links to the respective project pages for additional information. Enjoy.
