Gardens approves plan for high-end apartments off Central Boulevard


An Ohio-based real estate company is expanding its reach to South Florida with 124 high-end apartments.

City Council approved the site plan Thursday for the Central Gardens Grand community. The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will be on the west side of Central Boulevard, a quarter mile south of Hood Road.

The clubhouse and model apartments are expected to open in the spring, according to Brian Schottenstein, Schottenstein Real Estate Group chief operating officer/senior vice president. Rental pricing hasn’t been finalized.

Central Gardens Grand includes a clubhouse that’s about 12,000 square feet, 24-hour fitness center, yoga studio, movie theater room, resort-style pool and putting green, Schottenstein said.

Schottenstein plans to start construction in the late summer, and open the clubhouse and model apartments in the spring.

Planner Ken Tuma said although the community isn’t age-restricted, it will be appealing to active adults.

“It’s definitely going to be geared toward adults who are in their 50s and 60s and up because of the amenities that are part of the facility, such as a putting green,” Tuma said. “Hopefully, it will be a mix of everyone.”

The apartments will occupy a 282,859-square-foot complex with indoor parking on the first floor and two and three stories above it.

They’re in one building that consists of two U-shaped segments connected by the clubhouse. Putting greens and courtyards are in the interior of each segment. The community also includes a dog park and walking paths.

The Schottenstein Real Estate Group’s other new rental communities are in Ohio and Kentucky, although a 16,000-square-foot custom “spec” home on Palm Beach’s Everglades Island is listed on its website with an estimated completion date in December 2017.

The overall Central Gardens planned community development includes the separate projects of The Hamptons and HarborChase. The Hamptons is a completed 224-apartment community developed by ZOM Living.

HarborChase is a 140-bed assisted living facility by Silverstone Healthcare Company that’s under construction.
