$57M apartment project proposed near Disney

A proposed townhome development near Walt Disney World may become an apartment project soon — tapping into Central Florida's booming multifamily market. Plans were filed Nov. 14 for a 300-unit apartment development on 18 acres called Avalon Pointe Apartments near the intersection of Avalon and Hartzog roads close to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, according to Orange County records. The company's Hartzog Road Property LLC bought the property from Winter Park-based Keewin Real Property Co.’s Keewin Real Property Co LLC for $1.7 million in January 2016, according to Orange County records.
