Lowndes provided zoning and land use counsel to Skorman Development for the development of Clermont Hills apartment community.
Skorman paid $1.85 million for the 9-acre site and expects construction to start within the year. Clermont Hills will be Skorman’s second apartment community in Lake County. In 2022, the developer took home the Best Multifamily Development award from the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP) of Central Florida for its Minneola Hills project, which was completed in 2021.
Lowndes attorney Tara Tedrow, a shareholder in the firm’s Real Estate Transactions, Development, Land Use, Zoning & Environmental practices and chair of the Cannabis & Controlled Substances Group, represented Skorman Development during the approval process.
