About the Town Center


Tioga Town Center is an award-winning 23-acre mixed-use lifestyle center featuring over 30 businesses, and 184 luxury apartment homes. As a mixed-use development in Gainesville’s most consistently growing area, Tioga Town Center takes pride in combining urban style with small town charm.

Tioga Town Center fully embraces the invigorating mix of living, shopping, working and dining with numerous retail stores and restaurants, Class A office space, health & fitness center, education, and luxury residential apartments. All of this and more combine to make Tioga Town Center the modern, award-winning center it is. Pedestrian-friendly streetscapes and pleasing architecture seamlessly flow with the needs of the contemporary consumer, such as ample parking and convenient access.

Dedicated to outstanding quality in design and construction, the center presently includes over 120,000 square feet of retail and office space, as well as The Flats at Tioga, which offer 40 luxury apartments, in addition to 144 brand new construction apartments in Phase II of Tioga Town Center. This new development added two new four-story apartment buildings with additional ground-floor commercial space, additional parking, a pool, clubhouse, and playground. Tioga Town Center is also the gateway to the Town of Tioga, a 500-acre master-planned community, which is the fastest growing area in Alachua County.
