VENICE, Fla. (June 7, 2021) – Wellen Park has collaborated with Davis Development to develop Tropia at Wellen Park, a new luxury rental apartment complex. The 13.6-acre complex will be located in Downtown Wellen along U.S. 41 between Radiant Way and Springtide Way. Leasing is expected to begin during the summer of 2022 on more than 250 luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom residences.

“As a record number of people are deciding to make Florida their home, diversifying residential options within Wellen Park has become more important than ever,” said Rick Severance, president of Wellen Park. “With Tropia, more people will be able to experience life at Wellen Park as they take time to decide on a residence, wait for construction on their new home to complete, or simply prefer the flexibility of renting in a walkable area directly adjacent to the vibrancy of Downtown Wellen.

Tropia Wellen Park will feature brand-new luxury apartments boasting wood finish flooring throughout, spacious walk-in closets, and relaxing patios or balconies. The designer kitchens will offer modern cabinetry, custom backsplash, sleek pendant lighting above the peninsulas, and granite countertops perfect for entertaining.

The pet-friendly apartment community will include an expansive resort-style pool with sunbathing ledge, outdoor amenity deck with cabanas, grilling, and plentiful seating with lush landscaping. Inside, residents will enjoy a large well-equipped fitness center, hotel-inspired guest suites exclusively for residents’ guests, a brew lounge, and a cyber cafe with private offices and a conference room, along with other amenities.

Tropia Wellen Park residents will be located just a few steps away from the heart of Downtown Wellen. Expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2022, Phase One of Downtown Wellen will include retail shops; waterfront dining and other restaurants; a town hall; a kids’ playground and splash pad; a food truck area; an outfitter equipped with e-bikes, paddle boards and kayaks for enjoying the 80-acre active lake; and a three-mile health and wellness trail surrounding the lake.
