The final trusses were recently placed on the new five-story tower at Lakeview Terrace, a lakefront, gated retirement community in Umatilla, Florida. Hoar Construction is serving as general contractor on the $30-million expansion project, which includes the apartment tower, as well as a clubhouse and villas for the 100-acre campus north of Orlando.
The tower includes a mix of one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, each with a screened-in patio terrace, full kitchen, living/dining room and den. Nine two-story villas include four units each with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two screened-in patio terraces, a full kitchen, two dens and a laundry room. Carports are located outside of the tower and villa buildings and include spaces for golf carts and cars.
The 29,000-square-foot clubhouse will offer residents a daily dining experience in the Banquet Hall.
The Grill Room will house a full bar with terrace seating running the length of the clubhouse. In addition, the new facility will include two dining rooms for special events and an auditorium, multi-purpose hall for community events and activities.
Hoar Construction is working in conjunction with program manager ZHA International. The architect for the project is HHCP, while R. L. Plowfield and Associates is handling structural engineering and RGD Consulting Engineers is working on mechanical, electrical and plumbing.
The tower and villas are expected to open in the fall of 2020. The clubhouse will follow in the spring of 2021.
