NexMetro Communities Opens First Single Family Rental Neighborhood in Central Florida With 152-Home Avilla Suncoast in Odessa

PHOENIX, AZ - NexMetro Communities, a pioneer developer of luxury leased home neighborhoods, announced the opening of its first Florida community, Avilla Suncoast, a 152-home neighborhood in Odessa.

Avilla Suncoast brings NexMetro’s in-demand single-family, built-to-rent neighborhood concept to Tampa, offering a unique alternative to traditional rentals. The intimate 13-acre neighborhood offers the benefits of a purpose-built new home gated community with single-level, detached homes for lease with resort-inspired amenities. The interior elements are best-in-class and provide the luxury of an individual home with private entrances and backyards, high ceilings, open floor plans, and outdoor patios. The pet-friendly community also boasts a spacious, resort-style pool, spa, dog park, grilling stations, green space, fire pit, and gathering areas.

“Demand for single-family rental homes remains incredibly strong as consumers seek this unique lifestyle experience that combines the best of a single-story detached home and mortgage-free, maintenance-free leased living,” said Linda Coburn, NexMetro’s Vice President of Asset Management, adding that “The opening of Avilla Suncoast and our expansion into Central Florida validates the tremendous appeal of this hybrid housing offering to diverse consumers in all stages of life.” 

Located on the northwest corner of FL-54 and Crossings Boulevard, Avilla Suncoast is 15 miles north of downtown Tampa near popular retail opportunities, freeway access, and top-tier employers. The cottage-style homes range from one, two and three bedrooms with thoughtful floor plans that offer extra storage, high ceilings, stainless steel appliances, full washer and dryer, elegant hard-surface flooring and air conditioning to create a different take on suburban living.

“Our residents are typically ones that have the wherewithal to buy or to own but are choosing to rent,” explained William Hulton, NexMetro’s Vice-President of Development for Florida. “They often range from young professionals looking for convenience and proximity to employment opportunities or those in a life-stage transition. Others are baby boomers simply downsizing, looking to scale back while increasing their freedom, and discover our Avilla Homes can meet all their needs.”

Priced competitively with surrounding A-class apartments, Avilla Suncoast is professionally managed by The Bainbridge Companies and offers on-site maintenance. Walker and Company Construction serves as the general contractor for the new home community. For more information, to schedule a tour or to view pre-leasing opportunities, please visit:

NexMetro’s entry into Central Florida reflects the company’s strategic growth in key locations with demand by lifestyle-conscious consumers of all walks of life who would rather lease than own a home.
