Mirrorton is set to radically transform a 10-acre city-owned property on the fringe of downtown Lakeland, FL. The extensive planning effort was the product of a thorough RFQ process and coordination effort with the City, the Downtown Community redevelopment Agency and the citizens of Lakeland. The proposed development re-engages a long-vacant and important multi-block area back into the downtown core. With its 305 units delivered in a mixture of townhouses and 3- and 4-story flats, Mirrorton will serve demand for new, high quality rental housing in Lakeland’s vibrant downtown. A freestanding amenity building will house a fitness center, coffee bar, spa, meeting and work areas, pet spa, and a host of social gathering spaces including an attached outdoor terrace and pool. The site design is focused on establishing connectivity and a new urban feel, with orderly downtown blocks, on-street parking, minimal building setbacks, and pedestrian accommodations such as generous shade and sidewalks. The project’s architecture is a blend of precedent and innovation that utilizes traditional materials in contemporary forms. The Mirrorton site is currently under contract and the project is scheduled to begin construction in 2019.
