Wellen Park has collaborated with Davis Development to develop Tropia at Wellen Park, a luxury rental apartment complex. The 13.6-acre complex will be located in Downtown Wellen, along U.S. 41 between Radiant Way and Springtide Way, in Venice.
Leasing is expected to begin in the summer of 2022 on more than 250 one-, two- and three-bedroom residences.
Tropia apartments will feature wood finish flooring, spacious walk-in closets and patios or balconies. The designer kitchens will offer modern cabinetry, custom backsplash, pendant lighting and granite countertops.
The pet-friendly apartment community will include an expansive resort-style pool, outdoor amenity deck with cabanas, grilling and plentiful seating with lush landscaping.
Inside, residents will enjoy a large well-equipped fitness center, guest suites exclusively for residents’ guests, private offices and a conference room, along with other amenities.
Tropia at Wellen Park residents will be just a few steps away from the heart of Downtown Wellen.
Expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2022, Phase One of Downtown Wellen will include retail shops; waterfront dining; a town hall; a kids’ playground and splash pad; a food truck area; an outfitter equipped with e-bikes, paddleboards and kayaks for enjoying the 80-acre lake; and a three-mile health and wellness trail surrounding the lake.
