DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Transcontinental Realty Investors Inc., (TCI) a Dallas-based real estate investment company, and local developer Marin Development Inc. are pleased to announce their latest project, The Enclave at Deer Moss Creek (The Enclave) in Niceville, Florida.

“Marin Development Inc. is honored to be working with TCI to provide a luxury class A apartment community within one of the premier master planned communities in the Florida Panhandle with the master plan developed by Ruckel Properties Inc.,” commented Peter A. Bocchino, President of Marin Development Inc.

The Enclave will be a 305 unit Class A luxury apartment community located on 18.75 acres within the master planned community of Deer Moss Creek. The project is expected to break ground in August of 2019 and open to the public for leasing in January 2021. The property will offer one, two, and three bedroom units in thirteen 3 story walk-up and 2 story town-homes with garages. Units are proposed with bamboo floors, wood baseboards, crown molding, granite countertops, stainless clad appliances, European wood cabinets, and frameless shower and tub enclosures.

Property amenities will include a club house, full fitness facility, lighted basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, outdoor fireplace, gazebo, grilling stations and a lighted walking trail connecting to Niceville’s trail system. The community shares pool and spa amenities offered by the Master Planned Development of Deer Moss Creek.

“The Enclave is an outstanding example of our commitment to develop stylish, yet affordable apartments in economically sound cities,” added TCI’s CEO and President Daniel J. Moos.

In 1910, Niceville was given its name by the postmaster’s daughter. The “friendly city” is found in northwest Florida, in the western Florida panhandle, between Pensacola and Panama City. Located on the north shore of Choctawhatchee Bay, major roadways connect Niceville with nearby Destin, Crestview, Freeport, Valparaiso, Shalimar, Fort Walton Beach, Eglin Air Force Base and Duke Field. Everything that Destin has to offer – white sand beaches, stupendous shopping and remarkable dining – is only a 20-minute drive thanks to the Mid-Bay Bridge connecting Niceville and Destin.
