Project Description

Village Grove Apartments is a proposed new development that sits on ~100 acres of undeveloped land in the Village of Islamorada (Plantation Key). Plans call for conservation of most of the land while utilizing a small portion of the acreage for a 50-unit workforce housing development.

Workforce housing is a critical need in Monroe County (Florida Keys) which has the most expensive home ownership and highest affordability gap in the state of Florida – making it unaffordable to ~95% of households. Due to the dearth of housing for low to moderate income individuals, including teachers, nurses, and police officers, the quality of education, health care, and public services has and will continue to be impacted. These institutions continue to face challenges recruiting and retaining a quality workforce.

The development will provide much needed quality workforce housing that will blend local architectural character while incorporating modern building and energy efficiencies to minimize environmental impact.
