Fireside Creek Apartments in Winter Park accepting residency applications
The workforce housing community will hold an open application leasing event on April 5-6
Fireside Creek Apartments, a new workforce housing community in downtown Winter Park, is accepting applications for potential residents at two events at the Headwaters Center. Applicants can attend on April 5 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. or April 6 from 10 a.m.to 4 p.m.
Fireside Creek offers one or two-bedroom apartments for rent to Grand County residents who work at least 32 hours a week in the county. The apartments are deed restricted, allowing up to 120% average median income (AMI) based on the town of Winter Park’s income limits.
One person making 80% AMI, or $49,350 a year, will pay $1,322 a month for a one-bedroom. One person making 100% AMI ($61,700 a year) will pay $1,652 a month; someone at 120% AMI ($74,000 a year) will pay $1,983 a month. Two people in a two-bedroom would pay $2,379 a month, and their combined incomes cannot exceed 120% AMI, or $84,600 a year.
Fireside Creek is managed by Winter Park Partners, LLC and Valhalla Management. The workforce housing project broke ground in 2021. It includes 10 two-bedroom and 40 one-bedroom units at 460 Kings Crossing Road. They are expected to be move-in ready at the end of May or early June.
The town of Winter Park recommends that applicants attend on April 5 rather than April 6 for the best chance to be approved for an apartment. Those who submit applications after the first 50 people will be placed on a waitlist.
Potential residents should bring the following to the Headwaters Center on April 5 or 6:
- Application fee of $20 per adult (cashier’s check or money order).
- Reservation fee in the amount of one month’s rent (cashier’s check or money order).
- Proof of residency and employment (must work in Grand County 32 or more hours per week or 1,000 hours a year).
- Income from real estate or rental property (include lease).
- Social security card.
- Government-issued photo ID for all members of household 18 and older.
