Shadetree will include 260 apartment units situated on 30 acres in Ruskin's Cypress Village neighborhood, an upscale golf course community. Shadetree will mark the first significant market rate apartment development that the submarket has seen in decades, and will be delivered at a time when the area is undergoing tremendous growth. Perhaps the most prominent indicator of such growth has been Ruskin’s Amazon fulfillment center, which employs 2,500 full-time workers and is situated less than 1 mile from the Shadetree site. Additional employers within a 5-mile radius include two higher education institutions and two major hospitals, each of which are in phases of rapid expansion. Residing just 2 miles from an I-75 interchange, Shadetree tenants will also enjoy commutes of 30 minutes or less to major employment centers in Brandon/Riverview, Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton, downtown Tampa, and downtown St. Petersburg. Construction of Shadetree began in Q4 2017.
