"I am thrilled to see the redevelopment and revival of The Gardens just across the street from my longtime home on Wessell Drive. The new owners are well-respected and have a true heart for Gainesville. This in-town neighborhood will certainly be a high-quality addition to Gainesville."
Formerly owned by garden and nature enthusiasts, the 22-acre valley that is now The Gardens was cherished as a nature enclave in the city. On selling the property, the owners stipulated that development place great emphasis on environmental preservation.
Owner and manager McKibbon-Robison has been faithful to that trust with the conserving of old-growth hardwoods and a spring-fed creek complemented by nature-enhancing landscaping and family oriented, park-like features. The streets were engineered to match the flow of the valley’s topography with limited sight lines. Further, The Gardens has zoning concessions and variances that likely will never be duplicated in the city of Gainesville.
As with other communities developed by McKibbon-Robison, the pledge to fulfill all promises and bring all plans to completion is solid. That commitment is strengthened by the fact that the developers have their homes and family roots in the area. Their reputations are fully invested.
