The Development is planned connectively to the surrounding Class A+ retail, driving demand. The community will include 420 parking spaces and 30 detached garage spaces.

Exceptionally appointed, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes will be offered. The spacious floorplans come with 42” inch cabinets, state-of-the-art finishes, and stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances. Wood vinyl flooring is standard throughout the community.

Altís Grand Lake Willis Phase II was planned to achieve the highest living standards, with a resort-style amenity package, including a state-of-the-art 5,225 square-foot clubhouse with 24-hour fitness center, oversized mail kiosk, beach entry heated pool adorned with fountains, lounge chairs, grilling stations, and a fire pit, as well as one-of-a-kind recreational seating areas.

Altís Grand Lake Willis Phase II is a pet-friendly community, offering a pet park with a gated, off-leash area for residents to bond and play with their pets. The community will also be equipped with 24/7 package delivery through Fetch and dry-cleaning pickup station for residents’ convenience.

Altís Grand Lake Willis Phase II is National Green Building Standard (NGBS) certified. Its sustainable initiatives will include 100% energy-efficient designer lighting, ENERGY STAR® refrigerators and dishwashers, high-efficiency water heaters and sub-metered water, and car charging stations.

Convenience and prime location are a high priority within the development plan, allowing easy access in all directions to major employment centers, downtown Orlando, theme parks, and the Orlando International Airport. Altís Grand Lake Willis Phase II is adjacent to Vineland Pointe, a brand new, three-phase 450,000 retail shopping and entertainment center. Furthermore, the site is a five-minute walk from the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, which encompasses 657,000-square feet of retail space and 160 stores with over 13 million annual visitors.
