Sage Communities has opened a new, over 55-year-old residential community in North Fort Myers that will offer maintenance-free apartment rentals and resort-style amenities.
Sage at Oak Creek will feature 184 one-story rental units off Bayshore Road, just west of I-75. One and two bedroom units will be available, each with a full kitchen, living room, and private porches, plus an option for an attached garage. The concrete block construction will provide a safe and peaceful living environment.
Accessibility will be a key feature of Sage. All apartment buildings are single storey, so residents won’t have to navigate stairs or elevators. Barrier-free entrances and easy-to-convert interiors provide flexibility as residents’ needs change. The living rooms will have luxury vinyl floors while the bathrooms will have tiled floors. Bathrooms can also be configured to include grab bars.
“Our vision for Sage at Oak Creek is a residential community that combines the best features of active adult living with a carefree, resort lifestyle.” Randy Thibaut, founder, owner and CEO of Sage Communities and LSI Companies said in a prepared statement. “It will act as an intermediary for individuals and couples who no longer want to have the responsibility of living and maintaining their own accommodation, but who are not yet ready to move into an independent residence or an assisted living facility. “
Sage at Oak Creek is Sage Communities’ first development in Southwest Florida.
The new community will offer a swimming pool, fitness center, yoga room, social room, dog park, mail room and multipurpose room, as well as on-site management and a dedicated activity coordinator for support an active adult lifestyle.
To date, Sage in Oak Creek has unveiled five floor plans, including:
Royal Palm (1,559 square feet): 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, den, attached garage
Sabal Palm (1,418 square feet): 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, attached garage
Silver Palm (1058 square feet): 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
Sawgrass (1,043 square feet): 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, den
Palmetto (874 square feet): 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom
Introductory rental prices will start at $ 1,750 per month, according to a statement announcing the project.
The one and two bedroom models at Sage in Oak Creek will be available for viewing from summer 2022. The rental community is surrounded by Del Webb Oak Creek, a new community of 821 homes, 55+ by Pulte Homes offering a variety of vacation inspired home designs and amenities.
