TAMPA, Fla., April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, Mize & Sefair Development and Belleair Development Group, two Tampa-based development companies, unveiled plans for five affordable, gated, multi-family communities, providing a total of 1,000 new rental homes throughout Central Florida. The project fills each respective community's growing need for reasonably-priced, well-appointed rentals.
The project, titled The Keys Homes, will launch with its first two locations, The Keys Homes at Cotee River and The Keys Homes at Wildwood. The Keys Homes at Cotee River will include 126 units over 36 acres located in the heart of Port Richey, Florida. The Keys Homes at Wildwood sits just 2.5 miles away from The Villages and will consist of 200 units over 20 acres. These projects represent the first of a four-phase development plan.
The Keys Homes is co-developed by two Tampa Bay-based companies, Mize & Sefair and Belleair Development Group. Mize & Sefair brings more than 18 years of proven experience in residential construction and property development. Belleair Development Group, a privately-held, self-funded firm, has successfully developed more than 300 residential and commercial properties over the past 25 years.
"Our portfolio has always focused on delivering multi-family communities with high-quality amenities and The Keys Homes is no different," said Dan Sefair, CEO of Mize & Sefair. "In evaluating markets throughout Central Florida, there was a consistent gap between the increasing demand for rentals and the availability of upscale options that still offered an affordable price point. The Keys Homes allows young families to experience a beautifully-appointed rental community that feels like homeownership."
As its name suggests, The Keys Homes will transport residents to the Florida Keys with its coastal style. Each community will feature three-bedroom villas adorned with pastel blue, gray and white exteriors. Inside, residents will enjoy wide plank floors, shaker cabinets, and granite countertops. Residences will also offer modern conveniences from Vivint Smart Home, including a smart hub panel, thermostat controls, doorbell camera and keyless entry. The wide range of amenities extends outdoors, including private parking, resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, dog park, and car wash. Close proximity to top-rated schools and large employers makes each community an ideal option for young families looking for upscale living without the price tag. Three-bedroom villas will start at only $1,350 per month.
"The island lifestyle invites you to live worry-free, and that is a feeling we aim to invoke for the residents of The Keys Homes," said Carlos Yepes, Owner of Belleair Development Group. "From the safety and security of a gated community, the tranquility assured by quality concrete construction, and the ease that stems from smart home living, each community's elevated coastal lifestyle invites residents to escape from the typical rental experience."
Phase one construction launches with The Keys Homes at Cotee River, which breaks ground this month. Cotee River will begin accepting leases later this summer, with occupancy slated for the fall of 2021. The Keys Homes at Wildwood will break ground in the fall of 2021. Leasing will open during the first quarter of 2022 and will officially welcome residents in the spring of 2022.
Phase two of the project will introduce three new locations for The Keys Homes, with two properties in Ocala and another near The Villages, totaling nearly 600 villas. Phase two construction is anticipated to begin in early 2022.
