Construction hasn’t yet started on the leg of SunRail into Osceola County, but a Palm Beach Gardens developer is starting work this year on a new multifamily development a few miles away from the commuter rail stop near Tupperware Brands Corp.’s headquarters.
Eastwind Development LLC plans to start construction in the spring on Monterey Pointe, a 150-unit independent living facility with a 5,300-square-foot attached amenities center, which will be the first piece of a 150-acre transit-oriented development with residential units, retail and office space and hotel rooms.
The project site is on Greenwald Way North, near the north side of Osceola Parkway and east of John Young Parkway, close to where plans are in the works for the Osceola Parkway SunRail Station. Tupperware’s (NYSE: TUP) relatedDeerfield Land Corp. in spring 2013 deeded over an 8-acre piece within this area to the Florida Department of Transportation, so it could begin designing the platform for the rail station, part of the $1.3 billion commuter rail Phase 2 South alignment.

The amenity building will feature leasing offices, a gathering/game room, business area, concierge service, fitness center, dining room, multi-purpose room, indoor bike storage and pet grooming. Outdoor amenities include a pool, gazebo, grilling area, outdoor fireplace and gardens.
