VIENNA, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Middleburg Communities (“Middleburg”) today announced it closed on two land parcels totaling 49 acres adjacent to Friendly Way located off of FL-54 in Wesley Chapel, Florida, a submarket of Tampa. Leveraging its in-house construction capabilities, Middleburg plans to develop two residential communities: Mosby Avalon Park, a 338-unit traditional apartment community, and Hamlet Avalon Park, a build-to-rent community with 260 single-family homes, duplexes and townhomes. Construction will commence immediately on the Mosby component while Hamlet Avalon Park is planned as a future phase.
“These projects in Wesley Chapel represent our largest development investment to date and our fifth acquisition in Florida during the past year. We’re grateful for our investment partners and Synovus Bank for having confidence in our ability to execute. Our development and construction teams are eager to get started in earnest and we look forward to our grand opening next year.”
The convenient location of the community, approximately 30 minutes from downtown Tampa, offers exceptional access to job centers and regional demand drivers.
