Back in March we first told you about the plan to add a 450-unit apartment complex behind the Colonial Marketplace shops near Fashion Square Mall.
Construction has now begun for the apartment complex.
The new apartment complex will be located at 980 Warehouse Rd [GMap] near the intersection of Maguire Boulevard and East Colonial Drive and behind the Target and just of the Cady Way Trail. The property is currently vacant.
The 20-acre development will consist of a both townhomes and garden style apartments in 12 different buildings.
The apartments will be a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments ranging in size from 646 to 1,371 square feet. The will also offer a three-story, three-bedroom townhouse.
Community amenities will include:
- Clubhouse with a 24/7 fitness facility
- Resident lounge with gourmet kitchen
- Spa room with tanning and massage tables
- Media lounge with complementary Wi-Fi cafe
- Two swimming pools with sundecks, outdoor kitchen and entertainment area
- A serenity garden with fire pit and lounge seating, grilling stations and a children’s playground
- Open green spaces
- Walking trails
- Multiple ponds
- Dog park with amenities for both small and large breeds as well as a dog wash station
The first move-ins are planned for fall 2015.
They apartments will technically be in the corner of the Colonial Town Center neighborhood but very close to Audubon Park and Coytown.
Here’s a look at the updated renderings and you can checkout our previous story for the site plan:
1300 TO 1500 BUCKS IN NYC.. REALLY For a one bedroom.. LOL.. let me know where in NYC .. will move there asap
They will build them, go bust, get bailed out til the next boom. That’s all they know how to do.
What happened to style & amenities?
Moved to Central Florida 1985 to Verandahs apts Wekiva area. 2 master bedrooms each with large walkin closets & bathrooms, dining area + eat in kitchen, vaulted ceiling living room. Large wrap around verandah & front portico. Stairs with landing. Placed flower pots on each step. Palms & orchids on the front balcony. Stylish sort of plantation style, 1300 sq ft. $565
Too bad all of them are too expensive. 1300 to 1500 bucks for a one bedroom is way to high. They must think they are in NYC!
Do we really have this many people moving into Orlando to support all of these apartment complexes?
If these are “Audubon Park” then they should have a better bike/walk connection to Audubon Park. Bike/walk access from Fashion square to Audubon Park right now is super circuitous. Maybe the new residents will complain and get it fixed. It looks like once upon a time there was a cuthrough at Tanager Drive but some office building gated their parking lot and cut it off. Maybe they could create a new connection here (if the park ever opens): https://www.google.com/maps/place/980+Warehouse+Rd,+Orlando,+FLemail@example.com,-81.3475456,168m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x88e77aca2ddad45d:0x49760eba0641d5e7
Are these ones going to be affordable? Because we have plenty of the overpriced kind, where the developers obviously forgot the median income of Orlando.
Feels like rinse, wash and repeat for the housing bubble.
Are Orlando developers physically incapable of creating any sort of attractive high-density housing?
