November 20, 2014
The Kislak Organization, Courtelis Company and HMG/Courtland Properties are partnering on a new multifamily project. The three successful and long-established Florida companies are strategically aligned and are consolidating their expertise and resources in the development, construction and management of a class A rental community in Orlando.
The 240-unit project will be built on a 9.53-acre site in metro Orlando. It is designed as a best-in-class garden-style apartment community and includes three four-story buildings with one-, two- and three- bedroom floor plans and luxury amenities. Its central location at the southeast corner of John Young Parkway and Taft-Vineland Road is near multiple regional road networks and provides easy access to Darden Corporate Headquarters and its 5,800 employees; South Park Center, a 2.9 million-square-foot office park with 6,000 employees; the World Design Center, a 206-acre project with 4.5 million square feet entitled for office and industrial use; SeaWorld with 7,000 employees; the Orange County Convention Center, the second-largest in the United States; and many other large employment, shopping and entertainment centers.
Principals leading the project are Thomas Bartelmo, president and CEO, for Kislak; Elias Vassilaros, president, development and asset management services, for Courtelis; and Maurice Wiener, chairman of the board of directors, president and CEO of HMG/Courtland Properties.
The joint venture project is expected to break ground in the first quarter of 2015, with delivery projected for the first quarter of 2016.
