Almost 35 of 80 units in a $10 million Apopka senior living facility will be occupied during the first week of April after the developer spent nearly 30 days accepting and processing leasing applications.
Brixton Landing, located at 442 E. 13th St., Apopka, was developed by Wendover Housing Partners, an Altamonte Springs real estate development, investment and management company.
Although Wendover has concentrated on processing applications during the last 30 days, interested tenants have been calling Wendover for up to a year, according to Lynn Edmondson, regional manager for Wendover.
Why such a flood of interest in Brixton Landing?
“I think the need is there for affordable housing for seniors, and I think there’s a need in this area for that,” Edmondson said. “I think that’s what’s drawing people. Also, our reputation with Wendover and other people know the type of product we build, the service and the apartment communities we put together that they want to live here.”
Tenants will move in during the first week of April, but Brixton Landing won’t have a ribbon cutting until this summer, said Terry Cummins, marketing manager Wendover.
Brixton Landing boasts amenities such as a fitness center, a theater room, a library, a business center, a pool, a gazebo with a grill and a gardening area.
Built to Florida Green Building Coalition certified green standards, all units come equipped with a full-sized washer and dryer, cable-ready features, an island with kitchen storage and an emergency call system.
Altamonte Springs-based Roger B. Kennedy Construction started building Brixton Landing in summer 2016.
Priced below Apopka’s average rental rate, Brixton Landing has one and two-bedroom homes for senior households on a restricted income.
Brixton Landing will have a regular schedule of activities for residents.
