RIVERVIEW — A new luxury apartment community has opened in the Progress Village area touting itself as a distinct living option just 10 miles from downtown Tampa.
Alta at Magnolia Park is a 292-unit complex that is already approximately half full.
Monica Briant, the senior residential manager, said most residents have migrated here for work as teachers, healthcare workers, bankers and insurance agents or for military service at MacDill Air Force Base. She said many of them are drawn to the creature comforts at Alta.
"The floor plans are very different to the market," said Briant. "We offer a foyer entry so you are not walking right into your living room. That doesn't create a sense of home."
Located at 9104 Canopy Oak Lane, Alta at Magnolia Park features granite counter tops and stainless appliances, sport court and a pet spa for bathing, grooming, drying your pet, four electric outdoor kitchens for the grillers out there and a salt water pool. Washers and dryers are standard and many of the residents, who Briant said have a median age in their mid to late 30s, enjoy the weekly social events on the property such as cross fit or wine down Wednesday.
Renters can choose between 1- and 3-bedroom options ranging from $1,243 to $1,650 per month for between 829 and 1,229 square feet. There are more than 60 garages on the property available for an additional $130 per month.
Residents enjoy 24-hour maintenance, a clubhouse with cyber café, upscale coffee bar and free WiFi that stretches from the TV/video game lounge to the salt water pool area.
Bryan Borland, who oversaw the development of Alta for the Orlando-based Wood Partners, said his company improved on some existing plans that were already on the books for this location when they started planning the vision for Alta back in 2015.
"This submarket is the subject of tremendous growth," said Borland of Wood Partners' first property in the area. "We felt there would be a large renter by choice base coming to the area."
