College Town


In addition to being the state Capital of Florida, Tallahassee is also the home of two state universities and a big community college, so it can most definitely be called a college town. I took this picture from the top floor of one of the parking garages on the Florida State University campus near the football stadium. CollegeTown is a mixed used development of luxury student housing, restaurants and retail stores located in the Gaines Street entertainment district between FSU and Florida A&M University. The area where it is located used to be quite run down and blighted, but has recovered nicely in the last few years.

A nice view from the parking garage. The town looks rather nice and with students going to school in the area, it helps the community too.

I look back on my college years and I can't help thinking that "luxury student housing" sounds a bit like an oxymoron.

Luxury student housing? Didn't have that in my day, it was always basic or worse!

I like that and I think Ocala should copy the idea. We're trying but our politicos are a bunch of morons.

I like the look of this complex.

So with such a high percentage of students I'm guessing Tallahassee is a pretty cool place Lois!
