Rooms to rent: Luxury apartments booming in Volusia, Flagler

When Eastwind Development officials visit Daytona Beach to check on the construction of their Tomoka Pointe Apartments, they can’t help but notice the growing number of competing projects underway in the area.

Those projects include the Icon One Daytona apartments going up next to Cobb Daytona Luxury Theatres, the 500 East apartments along LPGA Boulevard, apartments planned just east of Volusia Mall and across from the AdventHealth hospital in Daytona Beach and The Pavilion shopping center in Port Orange as well as along Ridgewood Avenue in South Daytona and at New Smyrna Beach’s Venetian Bay community.

Apartments are also planned off of State Road 44 in New Smyrna Beach, on both sides of Reed Canal Road near Atlantic High School in Port Orange, across from the SunRail station in DeBary, at the Town Center complex in Palm Coast and west of Belle Terre Parkway in Bunnell.

Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. also is seeking to team up with a developer to create a grocery store-anchored mixed-use development on the soon-to-be former First Baptist Church block in downtown Daytona Beach that would include apartment units, and another project just south of the Ocean Center that would include high-rise apartments as well.

All have one thing in common: they are being touted as luxury apartments with “resort-style” amenities.
