TAMPA, FL - Mill Creek Residential, a leading developer, owner-operator and investment manager specializing in premier rental housing across the U.S., announced it has broken ground on Modera Encore, a contemporary mixed-use apartment community in Downtown Tampa.
Modera Encore, which will feature 304 apartment homes and 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, boasts a dynamic metropolitan location amidst one of the nation's most rapidly emerging downtown corridors. First move-ins are anticipated for spring 2025.
"We are fans of the Tampa market, and we believe Modera Encore is positioned to benefit from the city's continued growth and ongoing development of the urban core," said Damon Kolb, senior managing director of development in North Florida for Mill Creek Residential.
