The new apartments should be move-in ready by spring

LEESBURG — Greystone at Oakland, a new upscale apartment development off U.S. Highway 82 northwest of Albany, is nearing completion with an opening expected this spring.

Located in the Oakland Plantation community in southern Lee County, Greystone is targeting empty-nesters and families looking to downsize while still having amenities like stainless appliances and hardwood flooring.

Move-in dates are expected in late March or early April.

“We’re really excited about this new development,” Property Manager Kimbery Tabb said last week, adding that “considering where we are in the construction, it makes us very happy.”

The complex will feature more than 240 high-end residential units in size ranging from 906-square-foot one-bedroom units to 1,700-square-foot three-bedroom apartments. Apartment rental costs will range from $840-$860 for a one-bedroom unit, $1,100-$1,125 for two bedrooms and $1,250-$1,275 for three bedrooms.

William Hancock, president of Webb Properties, the broker for Oakland Plantation Partners, said the new development “is kicked up and ready to go.”

“It’s going to be a unique apartment community from the standpoint that it’s a very nice, upscale development that’s targeted to empty-nesters and others looking to downsize from their current situation,” Hancock said.

Some of the amenities in the apartment complex, which will be a gated community, are a 24-four fitness center with spin room, alarm systems, a dog run, a dog spa, a clubhouse, quartz countertops, a saltwater swimming pool, sunrooms, tanning beds and garages.

Greystone is part of the greater Oakland Plantation development area. That 800-acre site includes a gourmet grocery store, a bank, churches, a medical surgery center, a dental office and a childcare facility.

The area has the added benefit of being located on the Rails to Trails project that will connect Oakland Plantation to downtown Albany and Sasser. A rest stop park at Oakland will provide access not only to the trail, but to the Lee County Library at Oakland and other parts of the planned community.
