Construction has started on a 55,000-square-foot office development in Gainesville near the University of Florida.

The developers, Concept Companies and Gateway Development Services, expect to open the four-story office building in the third quarter of 2018.

The developers will market the office development, called 800 Second at Innovation Square, to “technology, research and innovative ventures of all kinds,” Brian Crawford, founder and CEO of Concept Companies, said in a prepared statement.

The top three floors of the building will have office space. The first floor will have a coffee shop, a bistro and a work studio with a variety of spaces, including furnished individual office suites, co-working and shared offices, and space for meetings and conferences.

It will be part of Innovation Square, a 25-acre, mixed-use development in Gainesville, designed to cater to companies built on the technological prowess of the University of Florida.
