Developers hope to break ground in late March on $39M community
DAYTONA BEACH — The new Tanger Outlets mall and the planned “power lifestyle” retail complex under construction across the street will be getting a bunch of new neighbors next year.
Site work is expected to begin in early March on a 276-unit luxury apartment community on the northwest corner of Mason Avenue and Williamson Boulevard.
The project’s developers expect the first residents to move in by spring 2019, said John “Jack” Weir, whose company, Palm Beach Gardens-based Eastwind Development Group, is teaming up with Canada-based North American Development Group to build the multiple-building apartment community.
“The goal is to raise the bar when it comes to apartment living in Daytona Beach,” said Weir of the planned “class A” development.
Amenities will include an 8,000-plus-square-foot clubhouse with a community room, fitness center and yoga/spin room, business center, a “cyber cafe” for residents that will include USB ports where they can plug in laptop computers and other mobile devices, game room, community swimming pool and deck area, walking trails and a dog park.
The 17.7-acre Tomoka Pointe apartments will consist of three four-story buildings that have an elevator, five three-story “garden apartment” buildings, parking garages as well as surface parking, and a pond.
The apartments will include one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, with some that will be loft-style. All units will feature 9-foot ceilings, tile and wood plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, bedroom ceiling fans, and energy and water conservation features.
Weir said his company also plans to build an east-west access road at the north end of the apartment community that will connect Williamson Boulevard on the east with the Tanger Outlets mall on the west.
“We’ll be building out the full southeast quadrant” of the 235-acre Tomoka Town Center development area that includes Tanger Outlets, which opened in November 2016, the retail center that North American Development Group is building directly east of Tanger whose tenants will include Dave & Busters, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Hobby Lobby, and a planned Sam’s Club membership warehouse store.
Tanger’s project is set to open this fall.
“We are very excited that this high quality multifamily development is getting closer to breaking ground,” said John Albright, the president and CEO of Consolidated-Tomoka. “Daytona Beach is in desperate need for new multifamily inventory to meet the high job growth creation that our area is experiencing.”
