Our Town Bayfront:
Upscale Construction Continues in Apollo Beach

APOLLO BEACH - Look for change as you travel Apollo Beach Boulevard over the next few months; it won’t be hard to miss. Two, upscale communities, in Mediterranean fashion, are planned for the land surrounding Apollo Beach Racquet and Fitness Club.

The first, a gated community named Treviso, will include 14 homes, 12 of which will be directly on the water. Languid and lush, alongside Treviso, the one hundred foot-wide canal will support 14 private docks with lifts and afford owners an eight minute boat ride to open water. Mediterranean-style stucco siding, rounded edges, brick pavers for the drive, and barrel tile roofs will adorn the exterior.

Tillman and Associates, Inc. began subdividing the five-acre parcel in June of 2003. All lots, except one, are under contract for $150,000 with a closing date set for November 1. After closing, land owners may begin construction of their dream home through builder Keith Hall of Captiva Custom Homes.

In the early part of 2004, expect the construction of 15 luxury town homes on the two-acre parcel adjacent to the entrance of Treviso. On Apollo Beach Boulevard, in front of the Racquet and Fitness Club, Treviso Town Homes will range from $200-220,000 and will be in keeping with the Mediterranean flair.

The tri-level town homes will feature 2,000 square-feet of living space, three bedrooms, two-and-one-half bathrooms, a 16-foot by 19-foot master bedroom, island kitchen, and full, two-car garage. "We wanted to get away from the narrow, ship’s galley feeling in so many town homes today where the average width is 19-22 feet," says Thomas Tillman, President of Tillman and Associates, Inc. At 28 feet-wide, these spacious town homes will be anything but cramped.

Preliminary plans for approval of Treviso Town Homes are under way.
