Genesis teamed with the non-profit organization, Boys Town North Florida, Inc., and Architects: Lewis + Whitlock, to create ART Town, a retreat for children and families located in the Tallahassee area. The project was recently completed, and ART Town hosted its grand opening in late January 2016.
ART Town at Boys Town of North Florida is a renovated single-family home, located at 2335 Trimble Road in Tallahassee, Florida. It is a retreat that accommodates individualized or group assistance, therapeutic life support resources, and encouragement to children and families that are facing a wide variety of challenges or situations. ART Town, which stands for art, resources, and training, provides a professionally supervised central location where children and families can experience personal growth in a welcoming environment. ART Town offers art classes, computer skills training, counseling, and guidance for children and families.
Genesis donated civil design and permitting services for the project which is bounded by Interstate 10 on the north, Trimble Road on the west, and Boys Town on the east. The renovated facility is an accessory building to the non-profit, Boys Town. Improvements to the site included the addition of a handicap parking space, building access ramps, sidewalks, driveway reconstruction and expansion, a stormwater management facility, landscape buffer enhancements, landscape special design, and demolition activities.
