The Convergence, Balancing a High-Tech Workplace with Quality of Life
Concept Companies and The Roberts Companies recently broke ground on The Convergence, a 420-acre development in the City of Alachua. Anchored by Momentum Labs, the development will be located adjacent to Progress Park and is designed as a hub for major science and technology research companies. The development will feature a mixed-use sustainable community with residential housing adjacent to high-tech businesses as well as miles of adjacent nature trails, sports facilities, and community recreation amenities.
“Our goal is to create a collaborative community where people can come together and work on their projects, live in the same place, and really do extraordinary science without sacrificing lifestyle,” said Brian Crawford, CEO of Concept Companies. “We’re estimating approximately 1,000 households and as much as three thousand square feet of commercial space. That commercial space is mixed-use, so there’s predominately research type space but also community space for retail and fitness centers,” said Crawford.
