Florida Trends' June Issue features a Special Report titled Business Portrait of Tallahassee in which not one , but two of Genesis's projects are highlighted for their positive impact on the community.
The Gaines Street Corridor Project, on page 8 of the report, is given as an example of the City of Tallahassee's efforts to attract young professionals to Tallahassee's Midtown area. These improvements have already fostered a new mixed-use residential project along the corridor.
As the oldest paved street in the City and a once bustling industrial area adjacent to the railroad, Gaines Street had been in decline for a number of years. This project consisted of a 1.5 mile four lane roadway with existing businesses and historic warehouse buildings lining the street. The objective of the project was to create a sense of place by improving the corridor with expanded sidewalks, significant streetscapes, on-street parking, landscaped medians and two vehicle use lanes.

Capital Cascades Park, a community centerpiece in Tallahassee, mentioned on page 8, is cited for is amphitheater, amoungst the other amenities it offers.
Forming a gentle bend in the southeast corner of Tallahassee's downtown, Capital Cascade Park will ultimately provide significant stormwater management facilities that will abate the existing flooding problems along the St. Augustine Branch and provide a beautiful setting for a world class park.
