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.


Discover our neighborhood village and the places around it that unite to create a connected downtown lifestyle for residents.


Home is where the heart is as well as delightful conveniences and comforts. Explore our apartment home features.
