Osceola County Commissioners on Monday approved a rezoning for a new D.R. Horton subdivision in the East Narcoossee area.
The homebuilder was seeking Low Density Residential zoning for 42 acres at the end of Oesterle Road, east of Zuni Road, and south of Cyrils Drive. It was part of an larger assemblage totaling 108 acres, the balance of which is already zoned LDR. The zoning would allow a minimum of 324 single family homes or a max of 864.
Osceola’s Land Development Code requires a minimum of three housing product types for all subdivisions with more than 100 lots.
Land Planner Jim Hall represented the homebuilder during a pre-application meeting in January where he discussed plans for the new subdivision.
Horton would join several other production builders who have invested in the East Narcoossee area around Zuni Road. Those include KB Homes and Royal Oak Homes.
Horton has been active in the greater St. Cloud/Narcoossee market. The homebuilder assembled 22 acres in the East Narcoossee community last year for a new 96-lot subdivision called Barrington. Horton is also actively building in Osprey Ridge, a 99-lot community on Boggy Creek Road, and in Canopy Walk in St. Cloud.
The builder is also under contract for 92 acres on Pine Grove Road in the City of St. Cloud. There it’s seeking approval to build 302 homes -- a mix of 1- and 2-story homes with at least three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage. It is anticipated the homes will be priced from $260,000.00 to $330,000.00
Horton will break ground on Savannah, a small community of 80 homes on Friar’s Cove Road, pending city approval of the final plat.
