DE PA R T M E N T: C OM M UNI T Y SP O T L IGh T WEST PARK vILLAGE Options for Every lifestyle at Convenient, Close-Knit West Park Village BY MARy LOU JAy L ocated in the upscale Tampa suburb of Westchase, West Park Village invites people to "Rethink the way you live." The active and convenient lifestyle it promises begins with the 40,800 square feet of retail space at the community's entrance. Residents and visitors can stroll along the brick paver sidewalks to window shop or stop in at one of the 23 dining and service businesses that include a Starbucks, several restaurants, two salon/spas, a bakery, a dry cleaner, and a pet store. "West Park Village is a unique community: The way you live plays off the retail center. Once you come home at the end of the day, you don't have to leave the community," said Jimmy Chestnut, regional property manager for Georgiabased Carroll Organization. Carroll is a privately held owner and operator of high-quality multifamily real estate that purchased the apartment community last May. West Park Village includes three distinctive apartment styles. The 60 loft units above the retail stores provide a more urban experience, while the 238 garden apartments, tucked away off small, picturesque courtyards, offer the convenience of one-floor living. Prefer multi-floor living? West Park Village has 319 three-story townhomes. These are not cookie-cutter units. There are 16 different floor plans, everything from a comfortable 815-square-foot one-bedroom unit to a spacious, 2,046-square-foot, three-bedroom home. "Even the same floor plans in different buildings can have nuances," Chestnut said. Some apartments, for example, have bonus rooms off the foyer or kitchen with a built-in desk for a computer. Most townhomes have attached garages, but there are separate garages available for rent to garden apartment residents as well. There are touches of elegance throughout; the garden apartments, for example, have a French Quarter feel, with wrought iron entrances over the courtyards, fountains and gazebos, or swings MultifaMilyflORiDa l Spring 2015 l 25
