Tarpon Harbour is a planned 106 unit Class A multifamily rental housing community that is being developed in the City of Marathon on the ocean side of the Overseas Highway (U.S. 1) near Mile Marker 51. The Overseas Highway is the main transit corridor between Homestead, 77 miles to the east, and Key West, 50 miles to the west.
The development plan calls for 106 new units that will consist of 53 townhouse duplex buildings. There will be 62 units with two bedrooms and 2.5 baths and 44 units with three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The ground floor of each duplex will be reserved for covered parking, the second floor will have a kitchen, living room, dining room and 1/2 bathroom; and the top floor will have either two bedrooms or three bedrooms, and two bathrooms. All 106 units will also have a porch, the duplexes will be constructed utilizing a manufactured modular system that will be anchored to foundations resting on concrete pilings; they will feature impact glass and are designed to absorb a wind load of up to 180 mph, consistent with the most stringent hurricane protection codes in the Florida Keys. Boat slips will be available to community residents. There will be a clubhouse and two pools for residents. Sixty-two of the units, consisting of 48 two bedroom units and 14 three bedroom units, will be required to be workforce housing units, restricted to a maximum rent affordable to households earning 120% of median income in Monroe County.
Leasing is slated to begin in January 2016.
