Located along the UF/Shands corridor of Newberry Road, Town of Tioga in 2009 seems to be weathering the choppy economy better than most.
According to a spotlight article on the Town of Tioga which appeared in the August 28, 2009 edition of the Gainesville Sun:
“Despite the recession, new retailers and restaurants have cropped up in short order to replace those that have closed. Second- and third-story office space is nearly full.
The Flats apartments that opened last fall are 98 percent full, while in Gainesville many complexes are struggling with their worst occupancy rates ever.
The KidWorks preschool expansion was full before its recent opening and has a waiting list to get in.”
Based upon the principles of Smart Growth, Town of Tioga offers walkable neighborhoods and pedestrian-friendly access to shops and restaurants. The neighborhood is zoned for Hidden Oak Elementary, Kanapaha Middle School, and Buchholz High School. Because school zoning is always subject to change, prospective residents should contact Alachua County Public Schools Zoning Office at (352) 955-7700 to verify school zoning information.
According to the latest Home Sold statistics available through the Gainesville MLS, the median sales price for homes sold in Town of Tioga during 2009 is $355,000.
