On Dec. 14, the Town’s efforts to create more affordable housing options for the local workforce took a major step forward with the grand opening of the Hideaway Place apartments. The new complex includes 38 units and 70 residents have moved in since opening in November. The name of the apartments was revealed during the event and chosen through a contest among the apartment tenants.
Attendees of the event were able to tour some of the apartments and meet some of the apartment residents. Winter Park Town Council also went door-to-door handing our housing warming gifts to the tenants.
As part of the Hideaway Station development, the apartments are also mere steps away from the new Fireside Market & Eatery.
“Living and working in a community creates that sense of community,” said Mayor Jimmy Lahrman on the importance of housing the local workforce in Winter Park. He also emphasized the Town’s efforts to foster the sense of community and enhance the vibrancy of downtown.
With the opening of Hideaway Place, the Town has invested $12 million in workforce housing with several more projects in the works. The next phase will break ground in spring 2018 and will house another 100 residents. Learn more about the Town’s Affordable Housing Program at www.wpgov.com/207/Attainable-Housing.
