320-unit apartment complex planned for The Greens at Millerville

Plans for The Greens at Millerville mixed-use development at Interstate 12 and Millerville Road continue to grow.

Developers have drafted a final development plan for a 320-unit apartment complex that would be located on a 16.9-acre tract in the development and would consist of 10 separate three-story buildings. The developers turned in the plan today to the Planning Commission, which will take up the application at its Aug. 17 meeting.

“One building includes a 5,300-square-foot leasing office with amenities space, with apartments located on the upper two levels,” according to the application, which states that the nine other buildings will consist solely of apartments.

The apartment buildings would take up just shy of three acres, while the 593 parking spaces proposed—which is nearly 140 more than required by development codes—would take up a little more than four acres. A total of 9.8 acres of open space is also proposed for the project.

Construction on the complex would begin as soon as all necessary approvals are obtained, with completion expected six months thereafter, according to the application.

As first reported by Daily Report in January, Richards Honda move its dealership at 7791 Florida Blvd., which has been in operation for 43 years, to the development. Also moving to The Greens at Millerville is The RV Shop, which plans to vacate its longtime location at 14340 S. Choctaw Drive and build a new sales and service center on five acres in the development. The new location would include about 2.5 acres of RVs as well as a 2,500-square-foot service and parts department with 15 service bays.

The Greens at Millerville is a 56-acre project that was conceived nearly 10 years ago but was delayed after developer Windy Gladney became embroiled in a lawsuit with his former partner and the bank that helped finance the project.
