Railroad Village plans to expand its community in the near future with a new affordable housing development. Railroad Village’s plan for a new housing development projects 200+ affordable units in an “Urban Lifestyle for Locals” concept. The idea behind this new housing is to provide Tallahassee with an affordable urban lifestyle available to all. Among the advantages of this concept is the lifestyle it promises to create – over 200 units for people to live, 25,000 square feet of working and gathering space, and outdoor activities including parks, ponds and trails. Additionally there are plans to add a new fire station/police sub-station built right beside the new community.
Railroad Village has lofty goals to be a community centered on a “live-work-play” lifestyle. How do you think it will play in the landscape of the Capital City?
