Residential construction is rapidly changing the landscape along State Road 54, west of its intersection with U.S. 41. Much of the construction is for single-family homes.
But, a new project on State Road 54, at Meadowbrook Drive, is adding 252 apartments to the mix.
Mystic Pointe is under construction at 2770 Mystic Pointe Parkway. The upscale, gated community will sit between Bexley by Newland Communities to the west and Ballantrae to the east.
Preleasing on one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments could begin within the next month or so.
“Pasco County is booming all along State Road 54 corridor, by leaps and bounds,” said Jeneece Chaplin, property manager at Mystic Pointe for Rane Property Management LLC. “We’re lucky to be part of that. It’s a great spot, a great location.”
The design theme for the complex is tropical.
“It will have that Key West style,” said Chaplin.
Residents will be able to choose from a variety of floor plans. Features include wood flooring throughout (with the exception of carpeted bedrooms), granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Each of the complex’s apartment buildings will have elevators.
Residents also will have access to a clubhouse, heated saltwater swimming pool, a dog park, a bocce court, bicycle storage, a state-of-the-art fitness center, business center, and an outdoor kitchen area with a fire pit and barbecue.
The pet-friendly apartment complex will consider larger dogs, which Chaplin said many complexes don’t allow.
Rents will start at about $1,180 for a one-bedroom/one-bathroom apartment, but Chaplin said the fee will include valet trash, Internet connection, a cable package from Direct TV and pest control.
Mystic Pointe touts its proximity to many area destinations. It has easy access to the Suncoast Parkway and Interstate 275 for trips to downtown Tampa, Brooksville, New Port Richey, area shopping malls, such as The Shops at Wiregrass and Tampa Premium Outlets, and west coast beaches.
