Melbourne developer ventures into Osceola with Harmony Central acquisition

A Brevard County developer is crossing into Osceola with the acquisition of Harmony Central.

Melbourne-based Forte Macaulay Development Consultants, Inc. (FMDC) paid $4 million on Friday to buy the proposed 463-lot subdivision from Harmony master developer, Sun Terra Communities.

Sun Terra bought the balance of the 11,000-acre Harmony community in 2017 for $24 million and subsequently sold of large portions to Fusilier Realty Group and Deseret Ranch. Sun Terra received county approval in late 2018 for Harmony Central's Preliminary Subdivision Plan.

FMDC specializes in residential and commercial development. Its projects include Baymeadows Downtown, Eagle Harbor Downtown and Hibiscus Office Park, among others.

Meanwhile, Jones Homes USA is prepping to start construction in Phase 1 at Harmony West. The Altamonte Springs-based homebuilder signed a contract to buy the first 134 lots in what will eventually be a 1,913-home expansion of the master-planned golf community.

Jones Homes paid $287,500 on Monday for the first five lots, which will house the models and sales center.
