Invesca Development Group this week pitched a plan to build up to 350 apartments aimed at millennials — more than a third of them micro units — in Plantation’s Gateway District.

The multifamily project, called PIXL, would be located at 4400 Northwest Eighth Court near Sunrise Boulevard and State Road 7/US 441, on the same site as Invesca’s under-construction 137-unit townhouse development Strata at Plantation.

Invesca CEO Christopher Longsworth presented the preliminary proposal for the complex, whose units will either be condos or rentals, to the Plantation Development Review Committee on Tuesday.

The development is slated to include 132 micro units, as well as one-bedroom units at 600 square feet each. When asked about the type of residents the project would be courting, Longsworth acknowledged millennials were his target demographic.

Edith Conaway, an attorney representing Invesca, told The Real Deal that Longsworth has yet to determine how the project will be financed.

The developer did note that phase one of Strata is already sold out and that he expects residents to begin moving in by the end of January.
