Wendover Housing Partners, a privately held real estate development, investment and management company, today announces the opening of its first affordable senior community in Tampa, Haley Park Apartments. The new property is a member of the prestigious collection of properties in Florida built and managed by Wendover Housing Partners. With first-class design standards in mind, Haley Park provides income restricted residents age 55 and up with a safe and upscale community to call home.
“The National Housing Conference predicts that the number of Florida residents age 65 and older will more than double by the year 2030,” said Jonathan L. Wolf, President and Founder of Wendover Housing Partners. “As the state’s aging population increases, there is an immediate need for cost-effective rental homes for seniors, especially in metro areas near hospitals and doctors’ offices. Haley Park will help address this rising need in Hillsborough County.”
Wendover broke ground on the 80-unit Haley Park development in June 2015, and will welcome its first residents in May. Each one and two-bedroom unit in Wendover’s new community was thoughtfully designed with senior comfort and safety in mind, and comes equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, island and pantry, as well as a full-size washer and dryer. All units also boast ample storage areas in an open and spacious floor plan, as well as a monitored emergency call system. With monthly rent from $605 to $720, Haley Park’s apartments are priced far below Florida’s average range of $1,176 to $1,657.
“While our units are affordable, they are designed with the same style and amenities you’ll find in high-end apartment communities,” said Wolf. “Our goal is not just to fill apartments—we believe in fostering a community in which our residents feel socially stimulated and supported.”
Like Wendover’s other senior properties in Florida, which include New Port Richie’s The Landings at Sea Forest, Jacksonville’s Marcis Pointe, and Central Florida’s Heritage Village Commons, Haley Park provides residents with the opportunity to participate in planned resident events. Residents are also offered constant access to a variety of indoor and outdoor areas to socialize, including a fitness center, library, swimming pool, green space with benches and a gazebo, and a dog park.
