Inspired by the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald, the first community to open at ENCORE! is dedicated to seniors ages 62 and older. Residents will appreciate the thoughtful features that hit the high notes throughout this brand new seven-story building. The designer one and two-bedroom residences are accompanied by park-like courtyards, a community garden, resident movie theater, and a lobby gallery. The Ella offers spaces for relaxing interludes and convenient access when you want to take the show on the road and explore area attractions. Located at I-4 and I-275, Downtown's Tempo District is close to popular destinations such as Waterfrom Park, Ybor City, and the Channelside District. Come take the stage at The Ella and lose yourself in the soulful vibe that beats here again.
