Gainesville addiction facility gains approval
Construction to turn the Residence Inn on the corner of Southwest 13th Street and Williston Road into a drug addiction and eating disorders facility will now begin. Planning Project Manager Craig Brashier says Shands and the University of Florida are now able to move forward after the unanimous approval of the proposal last night.
Brashier says Shands’ main goal is to create a campus lifestyle and a way for participants to stay on site and not worry about transportation.
