4-home community in Historic Ocala in final stages before development

The developer of a planned four-home community in Historic Ocala that will feature 3,600-square-foot, 3-story homes with lanais, courtyards, and elevators is seeking approval from city officials for an agreement that, among other things, will ensure the development remains a “single-family residential community in perpetuity.”

CampAlto, LLC’s developers agreement will be up for discussion during the Ocala City Council meeting on Tuesday, April 2, at 4 p.m. at City Hall (110 SE Watula Avenue).

Located along SE Ninth Avenue in Ocala’s Historic District, city officials have already approved the conceptual subdivision and improvement plans for the community. The final plat has been submitted and is currently under review by city staff. It must be recorded before a certificate of occupancy for the residences can be issued to the community.

During Tuesday’s meeting, council members will vote on whether or not to approve the 14-page agreement between the city and the developer. Read the complete agreement here.

CampAlto is being constructed by Drake Construction Services, which is headquartered at 302 Broadway. In addition to the building in which it is headquartered, Drake Construction Services has been responsible for developing or restoring multiple properties in downtown Ocala, including Bank Street Patio Bar and Ivy on the Square.

CampAlto will be a gated community with traditionally designed homes that feature four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.

Each home will come with a slew of modern amenities and upgrades, including cocktail pools, courtyards, lanais, and elevators.

The community will only be situated a few blocks from downtown Ocala.

If approved and constructed, CampAlto will join several other new communities in downtown Ocala that are in various stages of development.

That includes multi-family developments like Lamplighter Legacy Apartments, which recently celebrated its grand opening. That apartment complex offers studios and 1, 2, and 3-bedroom floor plans.
