Village View delivers 100 new apartments for seniors in one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods
ANF Group, Inc., a full-service construction firm providing construction management, general contracting, development, and design-build services, is pleased to announce the completion of Village View, a 100-unit affordable apartment community located in the Flagler Village neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Village view was developed by Housing Trust Group(HTG), an award-winning multifamily developer and one of the nation’s leading developers of affordable housing. Apartments at the seven-story community are reserved for seniors (55 and older) earning at or below 30, 60 and 70 percent of area median income (AMI), with monthly rents ranging from $402 to $1,296.
“As demand for multifamily housing continues to be on the rise, we are excited to have been part of this residential project providing much needed affordable housing to residents in our community,” said Al Fernandez, President of ANF Group. “We are proud to have completed this development in the Flagler Village neighborhood for HTG.”
Located at 640 N. Andrews Avenue, Village View consists of 68 one-bedroom apartments and 32 two-bedroom apartment homes ranging from 700 square feet to over 1,100 square feet, with terraces on both the first and third floors. Community amenities include a business/media center, a resort-style swimming pool with hardscape patio, a state-of-the-art fitness center, on-site management and maintenance, a pocket park, and structured parking. Units include open floor plans with porcelain floors, kitchens with granite countertops and full-size Energy Star kitchen appliances, and washer and dryers. Four of the ground-floor units offer direct access to the sidewalk via stoop entrances – fostering further connectivity between the building and the surrounding neighborhood. Camera and key fob access provide an added level of security to the community. The property is built to National Green Building Standards (NGBS).
The building design team for Village View included general contractor ANF Group; architect Corwil Architects; structural engineers Bliss & Nyitray, Inc; and MEP by Franyie Engineers, Inc. Thomas Engineering served as the civil engineer and landscape architect, while B. Pila Design Studio was the interior designer. This is Housing Trust Group’s second affordable community in Fort Lauderdale.
