US-based real estate developer Aventon Companies has broken ground on Aventon Clearwater, an apartment community within the Tampa area submarket in Clearwater, Florida, US.

Located on US-19 North, the 22-acre Aventon Clearwater project is being developed through a joint venture (JV) with private equity firm FCP.

The 396-unit apartment community, situated near major employers, beaches and shopping destinations, will comprise ten garden-style buildings with one, two and three-bedroom spacious floor plans.

Scott + Cormia Architects designed Aventon Clearwater’s buildings, with interiors due to be finalised by Beasley & Henley Interior Design.

Aventon Companies vice-president of development Burk Hedrick said: “We are thrilled to be able to begin construction on our newest project in Florida, especially during a time when high-quality rental housing is sorely needed.

“We look forward to becoming a trusted brand for high-quality living in Pinellas County for many years to come.”

Covering an area of over 8,000ft², the amenity space includes a fitness centre and yoga studio, coffee bar, pet spa and poolside lounge.

Some of the outdoor spaces include a private resort-style pool, cabanas and day beds, hammock garden, outdoor kitchen, walking trails and a dog park.

Aventon Clearwater will also comprise on-site offices and associated communication spaces.

The project adds to the company’s portfolio of more than 2,600 modern apartment units in the Sunshine State.

In under three years, the company has assembled a portfolio of ground-up developments of around 6,000 Aventon-branded apartment homes in Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic.
