Local developer eyes site near Lake Nona for new apartment community

In this conceptual plan, the 355-unit apartment complex would be east of the commercial development on Boggy Creek Road. The area that abuts a single family home would have 2-story, carriage house units (highlighted).

A group of land owners along Boggy Creek Road in southeast Orlando appear to have reeled in a multifamily developer for the mixed-use community just south of Lake Nona’s Medical City.

Lake Mary-based Integra Land Company met recently with Orlando city staff to discuss the proposed 355-unit apartment complex, to be called Integra at Boggy Creek. The project would rise on 16.5 acres between Beth Road and New Hope Road. It’s part of a 36.5-acre assemblage on Boggy Creek Road that was approved for annexation into the city in late 2020.

Known as the Beth Road PD, the project divides the site into thee zones: for townhomes, multifamily and commercial development fronting on Boggy Creek Road. The zoning actually entitled the site for 380 multifamily units, but the conceptual plan created by Charlan Brock Architects reduces the unit count by 25. The plan shows seven mid-rise apartment buildings with a large clubhouse and pool overlooking 1.5 acre feature pond. The northeast corner of the site that’s closest to an existing house in the Kissimmee Farms neighborhood shows a reduction in intensity, with just 12 carriage-style units.

The 36.5-acre mixed-use project would bring more apartments, townhomes and commercial development to Boggy Creek Road.

The development program calls for 151 one-bedroom units, 174 two-bedroom units and 30 three-bedroom units.

Integra President David McDaniel declined to comment on the project. The company has a broad portfolio of completed projects in Central Florida, including Integra Sunrise City, which was completed in 2019 and sold for $67 million last year.

The developer also completed Integra Cove near SeaWorld in 2015 and Integra Meadows at ChampionsGate in 2007.

The Boggy Creek site is across from DHI Communities’ Nona West planned development. The D.R. Horton subsidiary submitted an updated development plan in late December for the 60-acre site now owned by Adventist Health.

The revised plan by VHB calls for 762 multifamily units — up from 660 — in two sister communities. The apartments and commercial buildings fronting on Boggy Creek Road would have a maximum height of 5-stories. The other major change is reducing the number of senior living/assisted living units from 160 to 58. The plan also carves out 17.4 acres for a 188-unit townhouse community.
