University of Florida purchased the Gulf Side Motel in July, 2015. The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) began renovations to fit the needs of the Nature Coast Biological Station. The two story building has been demolished and is now a three story facility with a wet lab, aquarium and office space. The other side of the motel will be renovated to include dorms and a meeting area for researchers. See Photo Gallery Here
