Florida has the 2nd largest population of residents aged 65+ in the United States. In 2010, Florida had 2.3 million households of persons over the age of 65; by 2040 that number is projected to be 3.9 million – and represent 40% of all Florida households. Add to this the fact that many seniors live on a fixed monthly retirement income, and it becomes clear that the need for affordable housing for Florida’s aging population must be a priority.
Brixton Landing Apartments will provide 80 apartment homes for low-income seniors in Central Florida. To be located in Apopka (Orange County), Brixton Landing will be built to Florida Green Building Coalition certified green standards. All units are handicap accessible, and the property includes common amenities such as a fitness center, library, computer room, theater, and more. The goal of Brixton Landing is to provide comfortable, safe, affordable 1- and 2-bedroom homes for very low- and extremely-low income (ELI) households with health, educational, and recreational services at no additional charge that will enhance the daily lives of its senior residents.
Florida Community Loan Fund provided $1.2 million in financing for Brixton Landing, with additional funding from public and private sources. The developer is Wendover Housing Partners, developer and manager of affordable multifamily housing statewide. Florida Community Loan Fund and Wendover Housing Partners also worked together on the Haley Park Apartments in Tampa.
