About The Mahaffey Company

Established in 1962, the Florida-based firm has developed and built 23 apartment communities with 20,000 individual apartments across Central Florida as well as in Indianapolis, Indiana. Located solely in Florida now, traditional Mahaffey communities bear an easily identifiable brand known as Carlton Arms. After 50 years of Colonial Williamsburg style architecture, The Mahaffey Company successfully transitioned to a new distinct product line named appropriately The Carlton with a nod to the history of the company.

Subsequently Mahaffey has built a 382 unit apartment community in West Melbourne, The Carlton of West Melbourne, and a 442 unit apartment community in Fort Myers, The Carlton of Fort Myers, which completed construction in 2022. Their newest development is currently in Winter Haven on Lake Dexter, it is a 561 unit apartment community which will be called The Carlton of Lake Dexter.
