Apopka, Fla.—Applications are now being accepted for Brixton Landing Apartments, an affordable community for seniors in Apopka, Fla. The 80-unit property, which is almost complete, is being developed Wendover Housing Partners, a privately held development and management company.

All units are handicap accessible, and the property’s common amenities include a fitness center, library, computer room, and theater.
“By the year 2040, 3.9 million residents age 65 and older will call Florida home, and represent 40 percent of all households in the state,” said Jonathan L. Wolf, president and founder of Wendover Housing Partners. “Wendover is making it a priority to create affordable senior housing facilities now to prepare for the future.”
