LAKELAND, FL (November 15, 2019) – The City of Lakeland Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) sealed the long anticipated deal and closed on the project with Framework Group, LLC (Tampa, FL). Estimated at over $50 million, the 305 unit apartment and townhome community will span 13.5 acres near the downtown Lakeland Police Station. Mirrorton with its urban neighborhood design and planning emphasize the street-level pedestrian experience. The building architecture combines traditional brick and stucco materials with a contemporary massing and aesthetic.
City Manager Tony Delgado stated “This is a transformational project for our community and will be a cornerstone of the downtown catalyst plans developed by the Community & Economic Development Staff aimed at establishing a true residential lifestyle within the City’s downtown core.” Mirrorton will contain a welcomed mix of top-end finishes and unexpected appointments. From granite counters and wood floors, to high ceilings, and abundant natural light, Mirrorton will showcase a level of detail as thoughtful and refined as it is inviting. The clubhouse and amenities will offer a fitness center and coffee bar, spa with sauna and massage services, resident kitchen and pet spa. There will also be a conference room, computer room, game room and private party room, as well as a resort style pool and patio. Alis Drumgo, CRA Manager said, “Downtown is already a great place to spend time but it is still brimming with development potential. A project of this magnitude will make the heart of the City that much more attractive for developers.” He added, “The goal is a live, work and play atmosphere. Adding residential options to the existing stock will certainly improve our downtown economy.”
