HUTTON celebrated topping out the company’s inaugural multi-family project, Rockledge Flats, located at 282 Barton Boulevard in Rockledge, FL.
HUTTON’s top out celebration was held in honor of completing all exterior framing on Rockledge Flats, a 247-unit apartment project totaling 250,000 rentable sq. ft. The project is the cornerstone of HUTTON’s redevelopment of a former Kmart-anchored shopping center.
“After nearly 10 years of discussions with a variety of developers, the City is proud to welcome HUTTON to Rockledge,” said Rockledge Mayor Tom Price. “Rockledge Flats is a significant and welcomed addition to the Barton Boulevard corridor, bringing high quality, market rate apartments to the City, which will encourage business growth.”
The company saw Rockledge Flats as an opportunity for the Space Coast as it is one of the fastest-growing job markets in the country and quickly realized Rockledge needed housing that was both centrally located and convenient.
“We anticipate that this development will be a game-changer for this community and will spark further development to support its immense growth,” said Karen Hutton, President and CEO of HUTTON. Since Rockledge Flats’ groundbreaking in early 2020, Barton Boulevard has already witnessed the opening of several new restaurants, a direct indication of the project’s impact on the area.
Rockledge Flats will feature studio, 1-, 2-, and 3- bedroom apartment options with high end finish packages. Residents will enjoy many luxury amenities including resort-style pool, multiple courtyards, fully equipped fitness center, resident lounge/ clubhouse, dog park and more. Pre-leasing is anticipated to begin in the Spring of 2021.
This development is located within biking distance to Historic Cocoa Village and adjacent to Barton Park, a 110-acre recreational area that includes a 60-acre lake and a two-mile walking/biking trail.
“We are so excited to witness this transformation of our Barton Boulevard Redevelopment District, and HUTTON is a catalyst for this transformation,” said Mayor Price.
HUTTON is proud to be partnering with the City of Rockledge to bring their first multi-family development to life.
