Pendana at West Lakes–Phase I is now open and home to more than 200 families who are enjoying their new apartment homes and the beautiful community’s amenities. While Pendana is completely full at this time, we invite you to stop by for a tour and to fill out a guest card for future residency.

Construction for the Senior Residences at Pendana at West Lakes has begun, and we currently expect occupancy to begin in January 2020. However, this date is subject to change; up-to-date information will be posted here on the website. Leasing information will be posted 90 days prior to occupancy.

Designed to uplift and support the people who call it home, Pendana is a brand new, affordable, mixed-income apartment community just west of downtown Orlando. LIFT Orlando in collaboration with Columbia Residential are working to realize a vibrant community redevelopment plan that unites housing, education, wellness, and economic opportunity to uplift this Orlando neighborhood.

PENDANA [pen-DAH-na]

To begin this transformation, the community helped choose the new name, Pendana at West Lakes. Pendana, meaning love one another in Swahili, is a fitting concept for this extraordinary, holistic neighborhood now home to residents in west Orlando.
