A 5.74 acre site and this mixed use project brought to life developments on Madison Street; Tallahassee’s first-of-its-kind living, dining and entertainment complex. The Collegetown complex is ideally located to become the heart of game day festivities for students and alumni.

A Ground level parking lot provides for 150 on-site, tenant parking spaces; and, 78 metered, public parking spaces were also part of the project.
The complex is anchored by a three story restaurant and entertainment building on the corner of Madison Street and Woodward Avenue, near the main FSU Campus. Madison Social Club occurs on the ground floor, space for a future banquet facility occurs on the second floor and the building is capped off by a roof top pool and bar focusing on FSU’s Doak Campbell stadium.

One, two and three bedroom apartments each have their own kitchen and laundry rooms as well as a dedicated hot water heater and HVAC DX unit.
