Lake Mary-based Integra Land Company has signed on as the multifamily developer for the sports themed Olympus mixed-use district in Clermont.
President David McDaniel told GrowthSpotter the 289-unit community will be called Integra Heights at Olympus. It will be located in the southwest corner of the development, on U.S. 27 across from Lake Louisa, and he expects to break ground by late third quarter or early fourth quarter of this year.
The Clermont City Council approved a PUD amendment in December from Olympus Sports + Entertainment Group President Mike Carroll to move some components in the project around to the future health partner could secure a prime location with high visibility on U.S. 27. That necessitated changes to the planned hotel and multifamily elements. He told the council construction would start early this year on the master infrastructure system for the 246-acre site.
McDaniel said the Integra project is currently being designed and engineered for the new site, and he expects to submit a development plan by April. The apartment buildings will be 4-story, elevator served with a mix of tuck-under garages and surface parking, and a pool and clubhouse.
“We have our typical amenity package,” he said. “We will be tying into the Olympus master community with trails and promoting the health and wellness theme.”
The Olympus Sports City campus plan features championship-level venues for tennis, beach volleyball, track and field, aquatics, ice skating/hockey and field sports, as well as a 5,000-seat arena designed to host sports events and concerts.
Carroll said the health partner would be constructing a medical offices, a fitness center, senior housing and an assisted living facility in the Health & Wellness campus. McDaniel said Integra still plans to include a substantial fitness center as part of its built amenities. He doesn’t know the identity of the health partner or the timing for sports campus, but he said it shouldn’t affect development of the apartment community. “We’re in a location where it’s OK if it’s a little bit delayed,” he said.
The Integra design team includes Poulos and Bennett, ACi Architecture and Libra Design Group.
McDaniel also confirmed Integra is in early discussions to build an apartment complex on Boggy Creek Road near Lake Nona’s Medical City. The company has projects in the works this year in Daytona Beach and Deltona.
The multi-phased Olympus PUD has entitlements for up to 1,312 hotel rooms; 805 townhomes; 614 apartment units; 155,642 square feet of office space; 360,358 square feet of retail space and 345,283 square feet of medical office space that will feature spa services and holistic programs as well as centers that provide orthopedic injury diagnosis, rehabilitation services and physiology, nutrition and conditioning programs.
