Downtown Orlando is not only a great place to shop, eat and hangout, it's also a wonderful city to work in. Downtown Orlando is relatively uncrowded and relaxed compared to the downtown areas of other major cities. Additionally, downtown Orlando is beautiful, with many lakes, parks, restaurants and scenic streets. Most people who work in downtown Orlando usually live outside the city center and commute in every morning. If you happen to be one of these people, the apartment communities below are all great housing options. They offer a quick commute to work, and are all within four miles of downtown Orlando.
The Enclave at Lake Underhill Apartments is the place to live if you work in downtown Orlando. Located to the east of downtown, The Enclave can be found right off the Conway exit on the 408 Expressway. It sits on the beautiful Lake Underhill, which is a great boating and waterskiing lake. Since it is located right next to the 408, commuters can easily hop on the expressway and be at their desk downtown in just a few minutes. The Enclave has one, two, or three bedroom floor plans. Each option has a generous amount of square footage and is relatively inexpensive for the area. Apartments at The Enclave are tricked out with great features, like: vaulted ceilings, upgraded countertops, walk-in closets, alarm systems, a fireplace, extra storage space, a screened balcony or patio, and much more. Downtown workers will love the convenient location The Enclave provides, the exceptional apartments, and the gorgeous lakeside living.
To the south of downtown Orlando is Savannah at Park Central Apartments. This apartment community is another great option for anyone who works downtown, but doesn't want to live amongst the hustle and bustle of the city center. Savannah at Park Central is a beautiful apartment complex. Check out the resort-style lakeside pool with tanning deck, state-of-the-art fitness center, or the cyber cafe with coffee bar. Commuters to the downtown area will be happy to know that Savannah at Park Central is within four miles of downtown Orlando. A quick drive north will have you at work in no time at all. After coming home from a long day of working downtown, residents of Savannah can enjoy exercising in the spinning room or yoga studio, followed by a sweat session in the sauna. If relaxation is your thing, enjoy a film in the movie theater, surf the internet in the computer lab, or have a picnic in the outdoor kitchen area
Cornerstone Apartments is my final pick for a great apartment community for anyone that works in downtown Orlando. Cornerstone is located to the east of downtown Orlando. It can be found off South Conway Road, just down the road from the 408 Conway Road exit. Downtown Orlando workers will love escaping to their apartment outside the city because of the space and awesome amenities it has to offer. Cornerstone apartments have great perks, such as: upgraded countertops, loft layouts, walk-in closets, a balcony or patio, ceiling fans in every bedroom and living room, private bathrooms, and a whole bunch more. Downtown workers who enjoy fitness can spend some time at Cornerstone's 24-hour fitness center, swimming pool, racquetball court or tennis court.
