Ralph Conti, principal and managing member of Atlanta, Georgia-based RaCo Real Estate, and Svein Dyrkolbotn, a principal of Gainesville, Florida-based Viking Companies, are co-developing Celebration Pointe, a 1 million-plus-square-foot, mixed-use development in Gainesville, Florida.
Within striking distance of one of the largest student body populations in the U.S. and a major Southeast U.S. medical campus, Conti and Dyrkolbotn wanted to create a place that combines unmatched shopping, dining, entertainment, Class A office space, luxury residential and a highly engaging public space. Messrs. Conti and Dyrkolbotn believe the time is right to unveil a project like Celebration Pointe, which will not only serve the Gainesville area but all of the north central Florida region, an area sorely lacking such a destination.
