A Wilmington-based commercial real estate and development firm has broken ground on an active adult apartment community in Scotts Hill.
Oak Grove at Blake Farm, located in the Blake Farm community, is expected to hold 186 apartments targeted toward residents ages 55 and older, "allowing them to maintain and promote a life of healthy and active living," according to a news release from Blake Farm development company Trask Land Co.
The release said Oak Grove is expected to welcome tenants by spring 2024.
"Oak Grove will be a high-end, surface parked, garden-style apartment community with 186 residential units positioned to provide a welcoming internal courtyard containing a resort-style pool, grilling pavilion, fire pit area and a clubhouse with a golf simulator and modern fitness center," according to the release.
Other amenities will include a rooftop terrace with a kitchen and grilling station, walking trails and community gathering areas.
The general contractor for the apartment project is C. Herman Construction. The full Oak Grove project has an estimated cost of about $40 million, according to the release, while overall, Blake Farm has $120 million worth of projects designed and permitted within the community.
"As the master developer of the Blake Farm master-planned community, Trask Land Company has completed $700,000 of offsite improvements, including a northbound left turn lane with signal, a right turn lane and deceleration lane," the release stated.
According to the release, additional plans for Blake Farm call for about 100,000 square feet of commercial space that could include office/medical office, retail, restaurants and a grocery store.
