Did you know Lakeland’s apartment scene could expand by 1,000 new units? Here’s what’s currently in the works:
Near the Polk Parkway in Southwest Lakeland, plans were approved this week for rezoning, which will soon hold a 252 unit luxury complex.
- Features: One + two-bedroom units, an 8,000-sqft clubhouse, heated pool, dog park, and recreational space
South of Tigertown, this 88 unit development, Parker Pointe, broke ground in February.
- Features: An environmentally friendly complex, fitness center, pool, and library, with a February 2023 opening
This development was approved in November and will be home to a 630-unit apartment complex, plus retail + restaurant options.
- Features: Two phases featuring 300 + 350 units, respectively, with the second phase sitting atop 15,000-sqft of retail
While not officially approved, the plans received the green light to navigate negotiations in October, through April for a five-story residential development, a six-story parking structure, and 3,000-sqft of retail potential.
- Features: 153 units, a potential new corner cafe, and 400 additional parking spaces
This 120 unit complex could join an additional 270-unit complex, bringing the whole to 390 units.
- What’s next? Approval is still up in the air, with a more clear decision coming April 20 where the Lakeland Planning + Zoning Board will vote on whether to recommend the development to city commissioners.
A co-housing first for Lakeland, this complex known as Harwood Village Southgate would feature both independent + communal housing for older adults and adults living with disabilities.
- What’s next? As of September, Phase 1 was approved for 11 units. The owners plan to potentially rezone and add acreage to the property.
This complex would sit next to Lake Miriam Square and feature 244 units + five buildings
- What’s next? A public hearing for the development was requested for postponement. The hearing could now take place on Mon., April 4.
This potential 350 unit complex is located on the land previously coined Towne Park Estates.
- What’s next? This complex is facing a potential rezoning to allow for the volume of units proposed. The developer must also facilitate wetland boundaries.
