FaverGray, a leading multifamily and student housing general contractor, proudly announces the groundbreaking of the Ocala Heath Brook project, a luxurious 288-unit apartment community set to redefine upscale living in Ocala, Florida.

Situated on approximately 13 acres, the Ocala Heath Brook project spans 291,896 square feet and will feature seven buildings comprising a thoughtfully designed unit mix, including 87 one-bedroom units, 105 two-bedroom units, and 36 three-bedroom units. This expansive development aims to meet the diverse housing needs of the community.

Key features of the Ocala Heath Brook project include a clubhouse, dog park, swimming pool, pool pavilion with two cabanas, maintenance building, and a designated trash/recycling area. The meticulously planned amenities are geared towards fostering a vibrant and inclusive community environment.

The architectural vision for the development encompasses four 3-story Type A apartment buildings, three 3-story Type B apartment buildings, one maintenance building, and a clubhouse equipped with a fitness room and clubroom. The resort-style swimming pool is poised to become a focal point of leisure and relaxation for residents.

Construction materials will predominantly consist of wood framing, complemented by a brick and fiber cement trim exterior facade. The roofing will showcase architectural style shingles and standing seam metal roofing, ensuring durability and aesthetic appeal. The buildings’ foundations will feature post-tensioned concrete slab on grade.

Internally, the apartments will boast painted drywall walls, textured ceilings, and a mix of carpet, vinyl flooring, and ceramic tile. The traditional southern theme aesthetic will be enhanced by wood cabinetry and trim, complemented by solid surface granite countertops. Each apartment, whether one, two, or three bedrooms, will be equipped with patios, washer and dryer units, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, and shaker-style cabinets.

The site improvements will include water, storm, and sewer utilities seamlessly integrated with existing public utilities. A focus on outdoor spaces will be reflected in resort-style hardscaping, landscaping, irrigation, asphalt paving, concrete sidewalks, and a strategically designed dry retention area.

FaverGray is excited to contribute to the growth and enhancement of the Ocala community with the Ocala Heath Brook project. This development represents a commitment to quality, innovation, and creating spaces that enrich the lives of those who call it home.
