Pulte Homes files subdivision plan for expansion of Windsor at Westside

Pulte Homes is prepping a third phase of its popular Windsor at Westside vacation home resort community.

The homebuilder filed a Preliminary Subdivision Plan (PSP) and Site Development Plan (SDP) with Osceola County last week for the 46-acre parcel at the the southeast corner of Westside Boulevard and Goodman Road. The property abuts Phase 1 of the resort community.

Pulte is currently building Phase 2 of the community on land it acquired in 2015, and entitled for 330 units.

Kissimmee-based Rj Whidden & Associates designed the plan, which calls for a mix of 194 townhomes and vacation homes to be built in two subphases. Osceola Engineering Inc. is the civil engineer. 

The product mix would be identical to the current offerings in Phase 2, with three townhouse floorplans starting at $313,990 for a four-bedroom interior unit. 

The detached vacation homes would sit on 50-foot and 60-foot wide lots and range in size from 2,500 to 4,400 square feet. The largest floorplan offers nine bedrooms (three en suite) with a second-floor game room.

All homes and townhomes have private pools. The Phase 3 amenities would include a playground and soccer field. A bike trail would link the neighborhood to Phase 1, which has the community's main clubhouse and resort amenities.

The property, known as "Parcel K," was formerly slated to be the town center for the Westside Planned Development and had entitlements for up to 120,000 square feet of commercial/retail space, 80,000 square feet of office uses and 650 condominiums. That PD, and the associated uses, were approved when the Westside corridor was identified as a future Mixed-Use district in the county's Comprehensive Plan. 

The county subsequently changed the future land use to Tourist Commercial. Last year, the Tampa-based group that owns Parcel K had it remove the Westside PD and zoned Commercial Tourist. 

The hard corner at Goodman and Westside is reserved for commercial development, according to the site plan.

Pulte is currently pre-selling its two neighborhoods in Solterra, another resort community in Davenport just off Ronald Reagan Parkway.

In April, the homebuilder also was eyeing a 151-acre tract a half-mile west of Windsor at Westside, just over the Polk County line on Sand Mine Road. Division President Clint Ball said at the time that Pulte was in preliminary discussions to buy the property for a 550-lot residential subdivision.

The Westside corridor has attracted several national builders in the last two years.

D.R. Horton's 350-lot Murano community is in development now at the intersection of Sand Mine Road and Westside. And Magnolia at Westside, a 245-home community also on Sand Mine, is now being built by KB Homes and K. Hovnanian Homes. 

Mattamy Homes owns 241 acres spanning both sides of Westside Boulevard, including the land immediately south of Windsor. Mattamy is building Solara at Westside, a 900-plus unit vacation home resort.
