The I-4 “Disney interchange” is set for tremendous growth, especially along the Palm Parkway mixed use corridor. Epoch Residential enlisted Fugleberg Koch to help design and develop the new addition to the Epoch portfolio, with Kestra Apartments, to fill the growing demand for housing in the area.

Kestra is a new gated apartment community located in Orange County, Florida off of Winter Garden Vineland and Vista Oaks Street. This residential market rate project and its proximity to the attractions in the Kissimmee/ Disney area makes this development important to support the surrounding workforce. Kestra is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in late 2019.

Kestra consists of a total 280 units within (4) 4 story, elevator-served residential buildings. There are 8 different dwelling unit types including 1, 2 & 3 bedroom flat units as well as 3-bedroom Townhome units, all with balconies.

“One of the main design objectives was to provide and incorporate Modern architectural features for a cohesive and harmonious environment. Clean lines and a corresponding material palette assisted with achieving this goal. The Design Team, including the Interior Designer, Landscape Architect and Civil Engineer purposefully chose appropriate design elements working together to enhance the overall image of the project.” -Kyle Paxton

The amenity design package includes a spacious two-story Clubhouse with generous indoor and outdoor seating areas, a central gathering area with kitchen bar, individual work kiosk areas, a movie & game flex-space as well as a Fitness and Pilates retreat. The Leasing & Business Center are located adjacent to the main area, as well as an enclosed Mail Center with an Amazon package center and Valet dry cleaning service for residents.
