TALLAHASSEE – In an area which has seen a lot of growth and change in the last few years, a new apartment community, Arbor Crossing at Buck Lake, is taking shape.
Thirteen acres on Buck Lake Road, next to the Cosco, just off Mahan Drive has been cleared and construction has begun on a 208-unit apartment complex.
“This is an area of Tallahassee where there really are no apartment communities,” said property manager Amber Britt.
Arbor Crossing at Buck Lake is being developed by Arbor Properties, a well-established apartment community developer in Tallahassee, with additional properties in Mississippi and Panama City, Florida. It is the developer’s second largest community.
The new one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will be available for renters sometime late this summer. Arbor Crossing will offer 24-hour fitness, a pool, WiFi, an E-lounge, dog park, playground, car care center and a walking trail around the property.
What makes Arbor Crossing unique is 40 of those apartments will have attached garages, allowing renters to enter their apartment directly from the garage.
“If you look in Tallahassee there is nowhere that has that option (of an attached garage). You just do not have that in Tallahassee. It’s our biggest selling point,” said Britt.
Brit said, “(Arbor Crossing at Buck Lake) is going to be a great place to live – and absolutely gorgeous. The company is nothing new. It’s been around for some time. Anybody that’s lived in our other properties has loved it and I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t love it here.”
