Alta at Eastmar Commons is poised for rent growth (CBRE)
Alta at Eastmar Commons was less than a year old when the east Orlando complex sold last week for $54.65 million.
The gated property included 312 units spread across 16 acres near Valencia College East Campus and the University of Central Florida. Salt Lake City-based M&C Properties LLC bought the complex, with more than a dozen three-story buildings, a two-story clubhouse and eight detached garages at 10038 Vista Laguna Drive, Orlando.
CBRE’s Shelton Granade, Luke Wickham, and Justin Basquill represented the seller, Wood Partners. Granade said demand for the property warrants higher rents.
Del Webb at Sunbridge
One of the region’s largest developments — the 24,000-acre Sunbridge project in parts of Osceola and Orange counties — will have an active adult component as it gets started.
Del Webb, part of PulteGroup Inc. and one of the country’s largest builders of retirement communities, has planned a gated, 700-acre neighborhood pending final approvals from Osceola. Del Webb Sunbridge is planned for Narcoossee Road in northwest Osceola and would include more than 1,350 homes. The first homes are slated to open in the summer of 2019.
“We expect Del Webb, which has been the premier active adult homebuilder in the nation for over 60 years, to complete its approval process within the next 90-120 days,” said Rob Adams, vice president of Tavistock Development Company.
