Two projects will add nearly 1,000 housing units near MainPlace Mall

by in News

Construction has started on the first of two projects in southwest Orange that will add nearly 1,000 housing units blocks from MainPlace Mall.

On the north side of West Town and Country Road, the Ophelia Apartments started construction in December. The 262-unit apartment is targeted for opening open in late 2020, Toll Brothers Regional Director of Acquisition and Development Michael McCann said.

The project has two parking structures, which replace the surface parking lot of an adjacent four-story office building. One of the parking structures, already built, is dedicated to the office property.

The apartment building will have five levels and wrap the other parking structure, which will have more than 400 stalls.

Meanwhile, Fairfield Residential’s 702 W. Town and Country Road project to the south has also secured the Orange City Council’s approval. The project will replace office buildings with two apartment buildings, one with 295 units and the other with 358 units, and 74 townhomes. Each apartment building will have five levels and wrap a seven-story parking structure. There will be more than 1,200 parking spaces between the two.

The developments will all feature amenities such as swimming pools and community courtyards.
