After gutting the building’s interior and removing asbestos, the old 1928 hotel was converted into the Lake Mirror Towers. Redesigned with original architectural details, such as the ornate crowns, arched iron windows, and terrazzo flooring, the project included the complete restoration of the Mediterranean Revival exterior, rehabilitation of the building’s mechanical and electrical systems, code violation remediation, and other preservation repairs.

The 8-story structure was converted into 78 apartment units, including a 2-story parking garage, a pool, offices, a small gym, and a ballroom. As a tribute to its storied past, The Lake Mirror Tower now serves as downtown Lakeland’s first market rate apartment complex.
