ORLANDO, FL - Wendover Housing Partners, a privately held real estate development, investment and management company, announced the opening of its newest property, Weston Park. As a premier transit oriented development (TOD), Weston Park offers the first multi-family residential housing directly adjacent to the City of Longwood's SunRail Station. Now accepting applications for new residents, the 208-unit apartment home community encourages residents to adopt a more car-independent lifestyle.
"As Central Florida continues to grow, access to public transportation will become invaluable to commuters wanting to avoid congested highways and interstates," said Jonathan L. Wolf, President and Founder of Wendover Housing Partners. "Wendover recognized the lack of housing in close proximity to stops on the SunRail line, making the option to ride less convenient. Weston Park is a step in the right direction in creating a more transit-friendly city."
Weston Park, which broke ground in December 2014, is the result of a $30 million investment and multiple government partnerships. In addition to more than 200 temporary construction jobs created by the project, Wendover has hired an in-house management staff to run the property. The development also includes a parking structure, which is open to SunRail riders as well as residents, and is within walking distance to local shops and businesses.
"Whether or not you sign a lease at Weston Park, the property benefits the Longwood community as a whole. Non-residents wanting to ride SunRail will be able to utilize the parking garage with easy access to the station and local shops," said Wolf. "Not only has the development created new jobs, it will also enhance the city's culture and drive new business."
