Last summer MWBa ran a student design competition for the proposed development at the corner of University Avenue and 14th Street. The competition was a success but SC Ventures purchase of the property fell through. Shortly afterward, chef and restauranteur, Meir Zuchman bought the property. MWBa has recently begun design of the renovation for Mr. Zuchman. Construction is scheduled to begin in November 2013 and complete in May 2013.

When renovated the 8000 square foot building will contain up to 7 suites for restaurant or retail tenants. Interested? See Seth or Nick about the listing at Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group.

MW Bender Architecture, LLC, organized and ran the University at 14th Design Competition, sponsored by SC Ventures I LLC, and Gainesville Real Estate Management Company, Inc. The goal of the competition was to challenge University of Florida School of Architecture students to engage with the space and activity surrounding the campus by offering the unique opportunity to design, develop, fabricate, manage and build their design under the supervision of an architect. Nine entries were received. Winners were announced May 24, 2012.
