The construction of Capital Cascade Park and Gaines Street Revitalization Project is proceeding forward at a quick pace. Both projects were designed by Genesis Group and will feature major infrastructure improvements when completed. The projects continue to receive a lot of attention throughout the community. The article in Florida Trend emphasizes the excitement being generated by the projects.
From the Florida Trend article:
Two complementary projects are helping to reshape Leon County. Capital Cascade Park is the centerpiece of a $30-million project to recapture the natural beauty of an historic site despoiled decades ago by industrial usage. The 24-acre park, with a 4.25-mile greenway, will include biking and walking trails, an amphitheater and landscaped greenspace, and a cylindrical fountain recalling the original waterfall. Also under way is the $34-million Gaines Street Revitalization project - a mile-long stretch of Gaines Street being rebuilt as a pedestrian-friendly corridor between universities and downtown, meant to boost new-urban neighborhood redevelopment featuring public art displays, storefronts and live/work spaces.
