A new 299-unit apartment complex under construction in downtown Orlando’s Thornton Park community has a name: Artisan 420.
McLean, Va.-based Jefferson Apartment Group is developing the $42.7 million, nine-story apartment complex at 420 E. Church St., just a couple of blocks south of Lake Eola. The project, set to create more than 400 construction jobs, will feature 10 live-work units, 9,000 square feet of commercial space — including three art galleries — and three levels of integrated parking in a garage. Other upscale amenities include a spa and a salt-water pool.
Jefferson Apartment Group’s Mike Mulhall told me in an earlier interview that the idea was to create a little arts district. “We’re looking forward to having new local artists display their work every month,” Mulhall said in that interview.
