The Forum at Tallahassee broke ground at it's future site on West Tennessee Street Monday afternoon. The 782 bed apartment complex expects to be opened by May of 2014. The developer, Parkland Development Corporation, says they expect the Tallahassee location to be The Forum's flagship complex in all of the United States.
"We have a quarter mile of frontage. We don't have that on most of properties. So the actual design of meeting that requirement makes the design of our property something we don't have anywhere else in the country," said Joe Papasso of Parkland.
Features will include a pool deck, pet park and fitness center. Rates for the apartments are still being discussed.
