The Continuum is a graduate student housing and mixed-use residential community. Located a few blocks from the University of Florida in Gainesville, The Continuum was developed on the former location of the First Baptist Church of Gainesville and was designed to create the necessary urban transformation between the university and the city’s downtown.
Demolition of the church’s parking lots and education buildings created room for 438 graduate student housing units and 20,000 sq ft of retail space located in three apartment buildings. The project also included a five-story, 641-space precast parking deck. The mixed-use facility incorporates a business center, study lounge, leisure lounge with billiards tables, and fitness center. The structure included precast concrete, cast-in-place concrete, structural steel, and a wood frame.
