Boynton Beach’s newest apartment complex had a grand opening Wednesday.

High Ridge Landing is on High Ridge Road at Miner Road, and has 184 apartments in nine buildings. One-bedroom apartments start at $1,300, two-bedrooms start at $1,560 and three-bedrooms start at $1,719. About 55 percent of the property is already leased and residents started to move into the complex in October.

“We’ve hit a sweet spot,” Melissa Johnson, regional property manager, said about the price points.

The City Commission approved the project in November 2014, despite residents from the nearby Cedar Ridge community opposing the plan. The residents said there was already a traffic problem on High Ridge Road, and that more vehicles will just further the situation.

But the apartment community has made efforts to achieve goals the city is in line with such as having electric vehicle chargers, offering compact car parking and encouraging more scooters.

Also, the community is unique in offering a Key West-style look, said Stephanie Miller, a representative of High Ridge. The buildings have Bahama shutters and are painted in light blues, greens and yellows.

“It’s appealing to Floridians who want to live in Key West but the job’s here,” said Miller.
