Taxable values grew last year by 9.3 percent countywide, compared to 7.2 percent in 2016, fueled largely by residential and vacation home construction in the tourism corridor and, again, the Four Corners area.
Reunion Resort added a whopping $100 million in new construction last year -- a figure that includes both residential and commercial construction. It was followed by ChampionsGate at $70 million and Storey Lake at $60.2 million.
Kissimmee's Tapestry community and D.R. Horton's Kindred also added hundreds of new homes to the county's tax roll in 2017.
Scarborough said the assessed value of Tapestry grew by 45 percent in the last year. The fast-growing Narcoossee corridor now has an assessed value of $923 million, up 16 percent year over year.
A handful of new luxury apartment complexes were completed last year as well. Those include Domain, which is next to Margaritaville Resort and sold for $57.7 million in October.
