Builders brace for after effects of Harvey and Irma
Developers say that 45 townhouses under construction in midtown Gainesville called The Enclave will be completed in November ahead of schedule. Some fear that the massive rebuilding needed to recover from Hurricane Harvey and Irma will lead to a shortage of workers, higher prices for building materials and construction delays. - photo by Carlos Galarza
The face of midtown Gainesville is changing with the development of 45 townhomes on a 4-acre tract where 13 dilapidated homes — mostly rentals — used to sit. After breaking ground in the spring, and despite numerous rain delays, the project called the Enclave developed by Steve McKibbon and Robbie Robison is ahead of schedule and on track to be completed by November, according to spokesman John Vardeman.
