The University has legitimately enhanced the city, not only tangibly with the new high-tech I-4 Interstate corridor, but also through creating a Silicon Valley array of opportunities and enterprise. There has never been a better time to snap up property in Oakbridge.
The institute of technology-esq, Florida Polytechnic University extends advanced technology academics and degree programs to our future leaders in technology.

When deciding on the optimal place to live, home buyers are required to take an up-close, micro look at factors such as economic growth potential, employment opportunities, real estate value projections, proximity to recreation and culture, climate, convenience and the education system. With Florida Polytechnic University opening their doors this past August, it has not only provided Lakeland’s Oakbridge with a lucrative property position in the above named considerations, it has also given the area’s residents improved logistics and access to Florida’s largest tourist attraction areas, Tampa and Orlando. Oakbridge’s luxury home development neighborhood is positioned perfectly, located less than 20 minutes from Florida Polytechnic University, and centralized between Clearwater Beach and Walt Disney.

Attractively, there are several, distinct benefits of living inland versus the coast for well-informed home buyers. In addition to avoiding the adversely populated coastal area, those living inland enjoy perks including moderate cost of living, lush, lake-style ambiance, milder climate and amenities such as endless gourmet dining options, access to plaza shopping and convenient access to inland recreation activities and city life. Living further out, closer to the sea presents disadvantages like higher insurance premiums, potential property erosion and depreciation of either the land or home itself. Salty air and water damage are the primary risks, but tourists and seagulls can equally cause distress for homeowners year-round.
With today’s leaders teaching at Florida Polytechnic University and the area now brimming with future leaders poised to shape the next generation, living in Oakbridge is both an investment crossroad and a chance to be immersed in the high-tech momentum of innovation and development, all in your backyard. The City of Lakeland’s future holds tremendous market worth, status and power.
