Are these apartments available to anyone or is it open only to 55 plus? If you rent one are you a villager and you pay the same amenities as home owners and have access to everything?

The amenity fee is supposedly built in to the rent. The developer owns the building. So theoretically the developer pays 100% of all units' amenity fee to the District. There is no bond per unit, and since it's just one building it'd theoretically be $901 impact fee they'd pay for the building. I don't know if there's an impact fee for the 11 garages but I doubt it.

From the blurb I read on the website, it is intended to be a rental-only version of the Villages, which means at least one person occupying the unit must be 55+.

They will have access to all Villages amenities, but they will also have amenities that are exclusively for them. This should result in fewer of them wanting to go to other pools and rec centers since they have their own that no one else is allowed to use.

Lofts at Brownwood bringing apartments with amenities to The Villages

Villages News - July 28, 2019

The Lofts at Brownwood, which for the first time will offer apartment living with full use of amenities in The Villages, has begun taking shape a stone’s throw from Paddock Square.

The Lofts at Brownwood will include 265 age-restricted apartment-style units. The residents of the apartments will have their own private resort-style pool, clubhouse and fitness center. They also will have a dog park. In addition, 100 percent of residents of the Lofts at Brownwood will have Villages amenities built into their rental fee.

As the apartment buildings rise, many are wondering what the future holds for apartment life in The Villages.

Condominiums and apartments will be allowed in the new Villages of Southern Oaks, a sprawling development that will stretch from U.S. 301 east nearly to County Road 470 on both sides of the Florida Turnpike.

Apartments and condominiums would squeeze more money out of the acreage it is located on and provide a steady income for The Villages.

However, some residents who bought homes, pay amenity fees and pay property taxes are not happy about the idea of apartments in The Villages.

FYI a 3 story building is not required to have a sprinkler system.

Perfect for outdoor gardens and a constant supply of high pressure water to feed them.

Intensification means more money, but... for some of us, the historic area keeps looking better and better.
