Ribbon Cutting Event - Serenity at Lake Wales
Updated: May 26
(Polk County, Florida) – Nvision Development and Winter Park Construction (WPC) completed the $55 million Serenity at Lake Wales, a 335-unit community just north of Eagle Ridge Mall. The project is the first new luxury Class-A multifamily community to be built in the municipality since 2005. The development team at Nvision were early to relate the changing demographics in Polk County to the need for luxury multifamily options. Residents began moving in last fall, when WPC delivered initial turnovers to the Maitland-based Nvision Development, and owner/operator NM Residential. With the project now complete, an official ribbon cutting ceremony was held on May7th.
Gene Fultz the Mayor of the City of Lake Wales, in attendance at the event shared, “Nvision Development just raised the city of Lake Wales to a new level! They did a wonderful job on creation of this new community and the City of Lake Wales is grateful for their work.”
