GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - It’s a big step forward for a controversial development in an historically black Gainesville neighborhood.

A state administrative law judge has ruled in favor of the developers of the Seminary Lane apartment complex, a group of residents claimed the city’s approval of the plan in the spring violated Gainesville’s land development code.

The judge disagreed, with one exception, he found that one part of the development is too tall to be within 100 feet of the nearby historic district, but is allowing the developer to modify their plans.
