TAMPA — Leasing has begun for the Trio at Encore, the second apartment complex in downtown Tampa's ambitious 40-acre redevelopment project.
Scheduled to open in April, the $29 million complex will house 141 one- to four-bedroom apartments priced between $850 and $1,310 a month. It will host an open house for prospective residents from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at 1210 Ray Charles Blvd.
Encore, a public-private venture by the Banc of America Community Development Corp. and the Tampa Housing Authority, is scheduled to include hundreds of millions of dollars in newly constructed, mixed-income apartments, condos, stores and office space.
Encore's first complex, the seven-story Ella, opened to seniors last December with 160 apartments, a fitness center and space for restaurants and shops.
