Mill Creek Residential Kickstarts Construction of Modera Encore: Outlining Future of Multifamily Living in Downtown Tampa

As your trusted multifamily leadership brand, we have always maintained close tabs on the evolution of premier rental housing. Today, we are excited to share the recent announcement from one of the most dynamic players on the housing scene: Mill Creek Residential. The forward-thinking developer, owner-operator and investment manager, well known for their commitment to offering stellar housing options across the US, has kicked off construction of its latest project – Modera Encore, an exciting mixed-use apartment community situated in Downtown Tampa.

The Modera Encore development is set to redefine contemporary multifamily living. Sprawled across an urban landscape, it contrasts beautifully with the fast-emerging downtown corridor. It promises to be a fusion of modern architecture and lifestyle convenience, offering 304 apartment homes alongside 8,000 square feet of trendy ground-floor retail. The first residents are expected to move in by Spring 2025 – a time frame we are all certainly keeping our eyes on.

This project stands as a testament to Mill Creek Residential’s confidence in the ascending trajectory of Tampa’s vibrancy and economic growth. Damon Kolb, senior managing director of development in North Florida, stood firm with his praise for the Tampa market, citing projects such as the Water Street, Gas Worx and the anticipated Brightline Station as transformative markers increasing convenience and vibrancy. Indeed, Modera Encore’s premier position not only signifies its potential role in the Tampa urban core’s momentum, but also, underscores its intent to offer a top-market housing experience in the region.

The strategic location of Modera Encore at 1211 Ray Charles Boulevard, just southwest of Interstate 275, ensures residents will enjoy fast access to Tampa International Airport and the city’s thriving employment sectors—the Westshore Business District, the Gateway office market, and Downtown St. Petersburg.

But beyond the favorable location, Modera Encore promises an abundance of recreational, shopping, and leisure opportunities in close proximity. White sandy beaches, bustling leisure venues such as Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, the Tampa Riverwalk, and Amalie Arena – home to the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning – are only a few of the many attractions easily accessible from the community.

As a leader in multi-family housing, Mill Creek Residential seems to have spared no detail in planning the community and the amenities it offers. Residents can look forward to an array of top-tier facilities, spanning plush private workstations, fully equipped clubhouse, game room, pool table, meticulously landscaped courtyards, on-site pet spa, conference rooms, and a fitness center.

Yes, Modera Encore sets a benchmark in how modern-day dwelling can seamlessly coalesce with lifestyle comfort. But Mill Creek Residential doesn’t stop there. Modera Encore seeks to marry these modern-day amenities with ecologically sensitive design, seeking an NGBS Silver Certification in pursuit of sustainable living.

The commitment to quality is steadfast – from nine-foot ceilings, wood plank-style flooring, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and tile backsplashes, to the stylish environs for in-home washers, dryers, and the use of limited-access guest technology assures the privacy and comfort residents will enjoy.

All these highlights promise an electrifying boost in the multifamily real estate landscape, and we readily anticipate watching this progress. Mill Creek Residential, with the development of Modera Encore, emphasizes that quality living is a right, not a luxury, and it is good to know our interests are aligned in seeking to offer nothing but the best in multifamily dwelling options.
