FL Star Begins Consruction of Vanderbilt Apartments

Construction is underway for Vanderbilt Apartments, a new luxury apartment complex developed by an affiliate of FL Star at the intersection of Collier Boulevard and Vanderbilt Beach Road.

“We have a premier location for this community,” said Gary Hains of FL Star. “It provides easy access to a variety of lifestyle amenities with shopping, restaurants and medical services nearby. And it is very convenient to the transportation network of I-75.”

Vanderbilt Apartments will offer a selection of one-, two- and three-bedroom units within the intimate community of 48 luxury apartment homes. Hains noted that the new community responds to a growing need nationwide for apartment homes.

“Many people are choosing apartment living as a lifestyle choice, preferring the maintenance free aspect of a managed property,” Hains said. “The number of apartment dwellers is expected to swell in the next few years as younger people wait longer to buy a home and as immigration swells the population.”
