The Landings offers modern 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartments in a great location, plus extras like a computer room, a 24-hour fitness center and a free tanning bed.
The location can’t be beat because it’s just 2.5 miles from the University of Florida campus. By car, you’d take SW 13th street north, then exit onto either NE State Rd 24, Museum Road, or W University Avenue. The nearest bus routes are the RTS #13 and the #128, both of which stop in front of The Landings on SW 13th street. They both take about 20 minutes to arrive at the eastern side of the UF campus.
The Landings is also an easy drive to the VA Medical Center and UF’s College of Veterinary Science; both are just under two miles away. Take SW 13th street north, and then exit west onto SW 16th Avenue. This same route is also walkable and would take about 45 minutes.
Around the same distance away, about two miles directly north, is the Broward Outdoor Recreational Complex, which offers basketball courts, a roller hockey rink, sand volleyball courts, tennis courts and a skate park.
The spectators and athletes will both appreciate the convenience of having Ben Hill Griffin Stadium nearby; it’s located just west of SW 13th Avenue and University Avenue. When there are no home games scheduled, the Mark Bostick Golf Course is a couple of blocks farther west along University. For those interested in improving their swing, this 110-acre course is nicely landscaped and the driving range is open seven days a week.
The Gainesville area has plenty of nature preserves and parks for hikers, bikers, photographers and nature lovers. The Landings is located right next to the Sweetwater Wetlands Park, which has 125 acres of pristine ponds and wetlands.
The indoor activities in Gainesville include shopping, museums, and theatres. The Oaks Mall, which hosts a Macy’s and is across from a KMart, is just a 17-minute drive away.
There are also a handful of restaurants within walking distance of the complex: Howard Johnson’s and IHOP are open late; and Gator Suyaki and Twisted Peacock offer a more international menu. And you’ll never become bored with the variety of restaurants along SW Archer Road, such as Chuy’s Tex-Mex, Pollo Tropical Caribbean, and the Bonefish Grill to name a few. Even better, they’re right next to Regal’s Gainesville Cinema 14, near the intersection of SW Archer Road and SW 34th street.
The Landings is a great place to chill out after you’ve spent the day exploring Gainesville.
