Begun in the fall of 2019 at Melrose Apartments, the redevelopment of Midtown Village (formerly Melrose Apartments) is nearing completion, as the community center is almost finished and pavilion/recreation area is in underway. (See photos at right)

As this campus nears completion, the redevelopment continues at other campuses such as Rainey Street, Summit Street, Mill St. and others. All phases of the project are scheduled to be complete by the end of Dec. 2020. 

The 200 units of Midtown Villages are now modernized with energy efficient appliances and HVAC, as well as new plumbing, wiring, floors, lighting, flooring, wall treatments and many other amenities.

Midtown Villages: A new, affordable apartment community in the Midtown area of Gainesville!

Midtown Villages
formerly the apartments at Melrose, Summit Street, Butler, Collins Circle, Rainey Street, Mill Street – are being restyled, updated with modern amenities and introduced as 'Midtown Villages.' 

Spread across these six locations, Midtown Villages offers a total of 200 units, from studio size to five bedroom apartments, completely refurbished. Rent is income-based, and is calculated at a percentage of income, rather than being flat charge.

Plus, there is no minimum income level needed to apply for residency. 

Centrally heated and cooled, Midtown Villages are completely reworked with plumbing, wiring, wall treatments, ceilings, floors, appliances, counter tops and a total makeover for bathrooms. Additionally, the project brings lush landscaping and even new facilities such as an office and community center (Melrose). 

The application process opened Jan 2, 2020, and remains open as construction continues in five phases. The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2020.

The first phase began in Fall 2019 at Melrose, and continues throughout the year into later pohases. The project concludes at Butler and Collins apartments.

Additionally, a new community center will be built at Melrose, as well as a mainentance shop, new soccer fields and other recreational perks.

The E and F buildings are the first to be renovated in Melrose, and other buildings will follow. Here is a look at the order of buildings to be renovated in Melrose.
