Florida Hospital's first work-force housing about building community, too
Florida Hospital will set in motion its first attempt at work-force housing in July, when construction starts on a 230-unit apartment complex between Interstate 4 and the giant hospital system's main campus on North Orange Avenue in Orlando. Even though it's billed as work-force housing, units in the complex will be available to all applicants, whether they work at the hospital or not. Hospital employees will be given priority, but they will not get discounts and will pay market-rate rents. The four- or five-story complex, part of the hospital's emerging 114-acre Health Village, will be called The Ivy — Residences at Health Village.
