Site work has been completed and construction is underway on Sage at Oak Creek, a new residential community in North Fort Myers offering 55+ apartment rentals.

Developed by Sage Communities, Sage at Oak Creek will feature 184 one-story rental homes, each with full access to resort-style amenities tailored to an active lifestyle. One- and two-bedroom, maintenance-free units will be available, each with a full kitchen, living room and private porches, along with an option for an attached garage.

Construction has begun on models showcasing each of the community’s five distinct floor plans, as well as an amenity center that includes a swimming pool, fitness center, yoga room, social room, dog park, mailroom and multipurpose room. The amenity center also includes office space for on-site management and a dedicated activity coordinator to support an active adult lifestyle.

“After we broke ground in December, the response to Sage at Oak Creek has been overwhelming,” said Randy Thibaut, founder, owner and CEO of Sage Communities and founder of LSI Companies. “Older adults recognize they can capitalize on the current sellers’ market and move from their homes into brand-new apartment rentals that provide the resort-style lifestyle they want without all of the responsibilities and costs of maintaining a home.”

Because Sage at Oak Creek is geared toward 55+ residents, accessibility will be a key feature. All apartment buildings are single-story, so residents will not have to navigate stairs or elevators. Barrier-free entrances and accessibility options offer flexibility as residents’ needs change. Living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms will feature luxury vinyl tile flooring.

Sage at Oak Creek is located in front of Del Webb Oak Creek, a new community that will have 821 homes with vacation-inspired amenities. The development is off Bayshore Road in North Fort Myers, just west of I-75.

There are five floor plans for Sage at Oak Creek:

  • Royal Palm (1,559 square feet): 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, den, attached garage
  • Sabal Palm (1,418 square feet): 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, attached garage

  • Sawgrass (1,043 square feet): 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, den
  • Palmetto (874 square feet): 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom

Sage at Oak Creek will begin accepting pre-lease reservations in late summer. The first residences are scheduled to be completed in November 2022, including models available for tours. Introductory rental prices start at $1,890 per month.

Project partners for Sage at Oak Creek include Stevens Construction as general contractor, Barraco & Associates as the engineering firm, Tomahawk Construction for site work and Studio+ as architect.
