This historic district of Gainesville is a mixed neighborhood of classic old homes and newer apartments and condominiums. The Fifth Avenue neighborhood is one characterized by revitalization. New commercial construction is occurring, along with the preservation of older structures, which lends this neighborhood its historical status.

The Fifth Avenue neighborhood is considered to be the area located north of University Avenue between downtown Gainesville and the University of Florida. Its most important historic street is no doubt Pleasant Street, which is home to a number of historic houses, which have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Among the neighborhood renewal projects ongoing in the Fifth Avenue neighborhood are the development of a heritage trail with descriptive signposts, improved landscaping, and revitalization of building facades within the community. The regeneration effort has already led to an improvement in streets and lighting.

Another revitalization project is the restoration of the historical A. Quinn Jones House, which was once the home of the leading African-American educator. This house will be the trailhead for the Fifth Avenue-Pleasant Street Heritage Trail and site of the Legacy Project.

The Fifth Avenue neighborhood is also home to the annual Fifth Avenue Arts Festival. This two-day celebration in May features live music and dance performances, food, crafts, and events for children. Springing from the festival was the creation of the Cultural Arts Coalition (CAC), which today offers a variety of events year round, from theater performances to summer programs for at-risk youth.

In addition to neighborhood restaurants, retail spaces, and entertainment offerings, Fifth Avenue residents are close to downtown Gainesville, the University of Florida, and the Shands Health Care System.
