After four years of planning, ground was broken in the last few weeks for the new Town Trelago apartment complex on the north side of Maitland Boulevard.
The 20-acre site was prime picking for the Related Group, a Miami-based developer that is overseeing the project, which bought the land for $10 million and is planning on having the complex up and running in two years.
“It’s an extraordinary site,” said Jeff Robbins, who oversees development in Central Florida for the Related Group and acts as the vice president of development. “It’s an infill site in Maitland — which is extremely rare and hard to come by. We have the opportunity to develop lakefront property, which again is very difficult to come by and obviously is very desirable for apartment homes.”
The complex will include 350 units of apartment homes spread across 13 buildings around the property, which will be two or three stories depending on the location. Buildings on the lake will be built in the developer’s “big house design,” which will give it the feel of a typical lakehouse.
The two-story buildings will be placed lakeside, providing a view of the water, while the three-story buildings will be built closer to a planned 130,000-square-foot retail center.
The apartment complex also will feature a wide range of amenities.
“We’ll have all the class-A plus amenities with a sauna, yoga studio, massage therapy rooms, clubhouse and outdoor dining spaces,” Robbins said. “It’s really a one-of-a-kind opportunity.”
Although the Related Group will oversee the complex and its infrastructure — including sewage, water, and roads — Pelloni development will be taking on the dining and shopping section of the project.
The 130,000-square-foot retail center will feature a range of restaurants, shops, office spaces, and there are even plans for a hotel to go up — allowing for visitors to the area to also enjoy the shopping center.
“We have the proximity of 130,000 square feet of retail space at our front door, which I think is going to give us a tremendous amount of opportunity to really create a mix-use environment that people can not only call home, but they can enjoy shopping and they can enjoy dining,” Robbins said.
