Polk County Developments

Cassidy Homes assembles land near Polk hospital with plans for 1,000 homes

Cassidy Homes paid $4 million in 2017 for the properties outlined in red. They comprise most of the land in the two proposed Planned Unit Developments.

Winter Haven-based Cassidy Homes is prepping to add over 1,000 new residential homesites just west of AdventHealth Heart of Florida in Davenport.

The prolific Polk County developer filed two zoning applications this month seeking residential Planned Unit Development zoning for two separate assemblages involving 27 parcels. Both are scheduled for the county’s Development Review Committee later this month.


The larger of the two is known as the Hospital Group Property and encompasses 17 parcels, most of which are owned by affiliates of Cassidy. The site is bordered by Sand Hill Road to the north and Massee Road to the south. The PUD request is for 611 single family lots. The proposed PUD is just across Massee Road from D.R. Horton’s Charles Cove subdivision, now in its first phase.

Cassidy filed a separate PUD application for the “Kalogridis” property, an assemblage of 10 parcels comprising 106 acres. The developer is seeking entitlements for 418 dwelling units. The site is bounded on the north by Holly Hill Grove Road and on the south by Sand Hill Road, just west of Feltrim Reserve, a 117 townhome community now in development.


Dennis Wood Engineering is the civil engineer for both PUDs.

Last year Cassidy sought entitlements for a 375-acre assemblage on U.S. 17-92 in Polk County for up to 1,875 homes. The developer also rezoned 114 acres along C.R. 17 in Haines City for a 437-lot planned unit development.
