Award Winning Planning
Celebration Pointe is the 1st transit-oriented development (TOD) approved under Alachua County’s award-winning Mobility Plan. While the plan includes many innovative elements, translating those policies from concept to reality in the form of an actual development has been a challenge. Viking and the Celebration Pointe team have taken a collaborative approach working with county staff over the last four years to transform the vision into a successful, innovative venture. It is one of many reasons why Celebration Pointe has been able to obtain approvals in one of the toughest communities in Florida for new development. Alachua County is known to have the most stringent environmental protections in Florida and has historically been a slow growth community with some of the toughest land development regulations in the State. Celebration Pointe is the first large-scale project approved in the community since Haile Plantation was approved almost 25 years ago.
