The construction of Canter, a 320-unit luxury multifamily community, is set to begin in southwest Ocala.
Canter is being developed by Thompson Thrift Residential, an affiliate of Thompson Thrift, and will be located at 4945 SW 49th Place, across the street from HCA Florida West Marion Hospital.
The 23-acre site will offer two-story garden style buildings with direct unit entry and 96 detached garages. There will be a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments which will average 1,100 square feet.
Each apartment, according to Thompson Thrift, will include quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, side-by-side refrigerators, nine-foot ceilings, walk-in closets, and full-size washers and dryers. The following amenities will also be provided: a clubhouse, swimming pool, 24-hour fitness center, community gardens, and dog spas.
Josh Purvis, managing partner for Thompson Thrift Residential, said, “Housing supply has not kept pace with Ocala’s population and job growth in recent years, leaving many residents searching for new housing outside the city limits. We are thrilled to be bringing one of our distinctive multifamily communities to Ocala.”
Thompson Thrift plans to welcome new residents to Canter by the summer of 2023.
