HOLIDAY, FLA. — Housing Trust Group (HTG) has broken ground on Phase I of Park at Wellington, a $37.9 million affordable housing community located at 4369 Sunray Drive in Holiday, roughly 30 miles north of Tampa. Phase I of the 220-unit property will span 110 units, and HTG plans to open the complex in late 2017. The units will be reserved for renters earning at or below 40 percent to 60 percent of area median income (AMI). Rents will range from $367 to $783 per month. Construction of Phase II is expected to start in November 2016. Phase I development funding sources include $16 million in 9 percent Low Income Housing Tax Credit Equity provided by Indianapolis-based City Real Estate Advisors and a $15.5 million construction loan provided by KeyBank, which converts to a $3.5 million permanent loan after completion. HTG has five affordable housing communities currently under construction in Florida. The project team for Park at Wellington includes architect Fugleberg Koch PLLC; civil engineer High Point Engineering Inc.; and general contractor HTG Hennessy LLC.
