Wendover Housing Partners opened a 208-unit apartment building in Longwood near the city’s train station on the SunRail commuter rail service connecting Orlando to the city’s northern suburbs.

Altamonte Springs-based Wendover, a privately held real estate company, broke ground for its $30 million Weston Park apartment development in Longwood December 2014.

Rents range from $935 to $1,460 and amenities include a dog park, game room, fire pit, swimming pool and clubhouse.

Jonathan L. Wolf, President and Founder of Wendover, said in a prepared statement that the company “recognized the lack of housing in close proximity to stops on the SunRail line, making the option to ride less convenient. Weston Park is a step in the right direction in creating a more transit-friendly city.”

A Connecticut-based firm recently bought an apartment building near the main SunRail station in downtown Orlando. A group affiliated with Hartford,  Connecticut-based TPF Equity Real Estate Investment Trust bought the 257-room apartment building called Crescent Central Station. Developed for approximately $39 million, Crescent Central Station opened last year.
