Future New Tampa residents are signing leases at the Colonial Grand at Hampton Preserve apartment complex, where construction is chugging along right on schedule. The high end, townhouse-style apartments, located off Bruce B. Downs Blvd. and Trout Creek Dr. (near the new Sweetbay supermarket), is set to open in the fall. The complex will fill 67 acres of previously undeveloped land a half-mile south of County Line Rd.
Colonial Grand’s regional VP Diane Gilmore says that families and individuals already are coming onboard to live in the brand new community, which will feature the comforts of luxury living, while enjoying a “Go Green” lifestyle. Residents will begin moving into the complex on Monday, October 17, where they are welcome to use the oversized workout facility, poolside cabanas with WiFi, as well as participate in the community events that Hampton Preserve plans on hosting every week.
Colonial Grand has invested $53.8 million into the New Tampa area, and will open with opportune timing, as Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, located a couple of miles north on BBD, nears its unveiling in 2012.
“There are no other apartment complexes being built in the (New Tampa) area right now,” says Gilmore.
The 486 lease-only apartments at Hampton Preserve will be available in 1, 2 or 3 bedroom units. Garages will be available for many of the 2- and 3-bedroom units, and special “Gourmet Units” are available to guests who enjoy the lavishness of wine racks and chillers to accompany their gourmet-inspired kitchens, ten-percent of the apartments will feature those and other luxuries, management said.
All 31 buildings and 17 floor plans at Hampton Preserve have been certified by the National Home Builders Association (NHBA) with a Green Building Standard certification. Gilmore says the complex is going to encourage many aspects of “Going Green,” including giving its residents the option of living in a smoke-free building, an option that its sister community, Colonial Grand at Seven Oaks, and most other complexes do not have.
“Energy-saving appliances, low-watt light bulbs, paperless bills, and the choice of signing an ‘E-Lease’ are all a part of our efforts to ‘go green,’” Gilmore says.
Rents fluctuates with the size and features of the apartments. The units range from 682-1,468 sq. feet, and Gilmore says they are reasonably priced for the value residents receive, including views of the backwoods wildlife, the resort-style pool and the wild flower garden, which was designed to keep the stomachs of the local deer population happy while looking pleasant to residents.
