Intram President Rashid Khatib told GrowthSpotter that the Lake Mary developer is expected to close in August on 11.5 acres just off Vineland Road. Integra will build a 300-unit apartment complex in what is the first phase of residential development.
"There are more phases after that," Khatib said. "We have capacity to do a lot more."
Integra filed construction plans this week with South Florida Water Management District for the apartment community to include 124 one-bedroom units, and 176 two- and three-bedroom units with attached and detached garages.
"We really like the area. We think it's growing and we want to be a part of all the job creation that's coming there," said Integra President David McDaniel on Thursday.
Project architect Charlan, Brock & Associates introduced some elements -- such as a tile roof -- that Integra had not used before. "We tried to bring a current, modern flair to make it stand out from what's available in the market now."
Integra has completed several Class A apartment communities in the Orlando metro area, including Integra Lakes in Casselberry, and is nearing completion on Integra 360 in Winter Springs. Integra communities feature luxury upgrades, such as kitchen islands with granite counters, built-in computer niches, saltwater pools with a wifi-cabana bar, valet trash pick-up and a dog park.
McDaniel said Integra Sunrise would include all those features, as well as a cyber cafe, billiard room and 24-hour fitness center. The complex includes four main buildings, all four-story with elevators, and a scattering of two-story, carriage-house product.
The first building, expected to open First Quarter 2019, includes the amenities on the first floor and opens out to the zero-entry salt water pool, fire pit and grilling station.
Another four-story building will wrap around an interior courtyard and zen garden lit by cafe-style string lights. "It's going to be a very relaxing, peaceful area," McDaniel said.
Integra expects to wrap up construction by late 2019.
Meanwhile, Intram is completing construction on the Publix-anchored Sunrise City Plaza retail center this summer and is almost fully leased.
Khatib said Intram would deliver the Publix, Ross, Petco and T.J. Maxx stores in August and all are expected to open by October. The 46,500-square-foot grocery store will replace the Publix at Poinciana Place. Intram has signed tenants for all but one outparcel on Vineland Road.
This week the firm and its engineer, Hanson, Walter & Associates, filed site development plans for a Chipotle, which will lease 2,200 square feet of a building to be constructed in the northwest corner of the shopping center. Khatib said Intram is negotiating with a retailer to lease the remaining 2,500 square feet of the building.
Chipotle joins Wendy's, Twistee Treat and Five Guys as named tenants.
