BRANDON, Fla.—The Avli at Crosstown Center welcomed residents today as CBG completed its first building on schedule. Developed by first-time client CASTO and designed by Slocum Platts Architects, the new luxury garden-style community located on the USAA Tampa campus includes 236 units, a business center, clubhouse, fitness center, pool, and dog park.

Despite a number of material and labor challenges caused by COVID-19, CBG successfully turned over The Avli’s first building on schedule and within budget. CBG was also a major contributor in obtaining the building’s temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO): by communicating with the City of Tampa’s construction services division daily, the team resolved outstanding inspection requirements in time for the first residents to move in. During this period, the team limited its working hours and construction access routes to avoid resident disruption.

"CBG is proud to have delivered The Avli on schedule and within budget," said Rip Panos, vice president at CBG. "We are glad we could contribute to a successful opening day and look forward to completing the community’s final touches in the upcoming weeks."

CBG sourced local manufacturers and suppliers for The Avli’s trusses, stairs, and hurricane-resistant windows and doors. The Avli offers one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with full-size washers and dryers, oversized windows, and fully equipped home features including smart thermostats, switches, and outlets. The community’s best-in-class amenities include a resort-style heated saltwater pool with cabanas, landscaped courtyard with grills, outdoor seating area, dog park, deluxe car wash station, fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, and resident lounge with a communal kitchen. The Avli boasts easy access to Interstate 301 and the Town Center Mall with a number of shopping and dining options.
