While several plans are making their way through the Orange County government channels to fill in the spaces in the fast-growing Horizon West area, developers of a brand-new luxury apartment complex are ready to get started.
Development and construction company TDK Construction, out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, has plans to build 340 Class-A, multi-family units in Village H in Horizon West. The complex will be called Vintage Horizon West. The project’s planned location is a piece of land spanning 18.5 acres on the east side of Avalon Road and south side of Flamingo Crossings Boulevard.
According to TDK’s vice president of development, Ross Bradley, the plans include 10 three-story apartment buildings, some with direct-access garages, a four-story building with interior-corridors similar to a hotel design, and one standalone clubhouse. There will be one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
Amenities at the luxury apartments will include quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, electric car charging stations, a pet spa, public and private meeting spaces and a fitness center.
Bradley said there will be ample green space in the complex with walking trails and several outdoor gyms will be set up like obstacle courses, replacing what would normally be a children’s playground. The design also will include a pool with private cabanas and various social areas such as fire pits and hammock gardens for residents to spend time in.
“We really try to make it feel like a resort-style community,” Bradley said.
At the request of the Development Review Committee, the construction of a traffic signal at County Road 545 and Flamingo Crossings Boulevard will be required before developers are granted a certificate of occupancy.
TDK Construction has been active in the Florida market for a few years now, with projects in Destin and Amelia Island, according to Bradley.
“There’s just tremendous job growth and population growth in that area, and that’s really what attracted us to that region,” Bradley said.
The company recently finished construction on a project similar to Vintage Horizon West, Vintage Winter Park, near Full Sail University. Leasing currently is wrapping up for the 332-unit complex there, which Bradley said was incredibly popular. He said the apartments averaged 50 leases per month.
Bradley said the team expects to break ground on Vintage Horizon West in September and start leasing in a year. He said the project likely will take two years from start to finish.
