With initial clearing and blasting complete, contractors have begun to excavate the lakes at Milano Lakes, a new apartment community off Collier Boulevard at The Lords Way.
“The community is designed around one major lake with two buildings overlooking a second lake and a third, smaller lake on the perimeter of the 23-acre site,” said Gary Hains, vice president of FL Star. “Our site work is progressing on schedule, with the site work being performed by Coastal Site Development, a division of Fort Myers-based Coastal Concrete Products, LLC.
“The next stage will include work on the installation of utilities, water and sewer lines,” he continued. “We expect to begin construction on the buildings by early fall and anticipate that the first units will be available by the second quarter of 2017.”
Milano Lakes will include 296 apartment homes in eight buildings, offering one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. Within the community, there will also be 96 detached garages.
Apartment interiors have been designed to live like a home with laundry facilities within each unit, a master suite with a walk-in closet and dual sinks in the master bath, an island kitchen with a dining area and a lanai. Four floor plans are available.
The one-bedroom design offers 808 square feet of air-conditioned space and a total of 889 square feet. Two different designs will be available with two bedrooms and two baths and full laundry rooms. One design encompasses 1,159 air-conditioned square feet and a total of 1,230 square feet. A second two-bedroom design includes 1,240 air-conditioned square feet with a total of 1,309 square feet.
“The three-bedroom design is very much the equivalent of a single-family home in its arrangement and living space,” Hains said. “This apartment home has 1,439 air-conditioned square feet and a total of 1,545 square feet and includes three bedrooms and two baths.”
The community will offer residents a 5,488-square-foot clubhouse for social gatherings, a resort-style swimming pool, a fitness center and a children’s playground.
Milano Lakes is being developed by an affiliate of FL Star, a conglomerate of real estate entities led by Gary Hains and David E. Torres.
