UPDATED: JANUARY 05, 2017 04:30 PM — CalAtlantic Homes is in the final planning stages for Tuskawilla Crossings, a 379-home subdivision straddling the Cross Seminole Trail in Winter Springs.
The developer, formerly known as Standard Pacific, bought the 133-acre site in 2015 for $17.1 million. It's located just west of the S.R. 417 Beltway and is within walking distance of three schools.
The 23-mile bike trail bisects the development, which will have access to multiple trailheads within the community. The project also includes a future commercial component on Tuskawilla Road that will be developed at a later stage.
CalAtlantic has submitted the final engineering plan to the city, as well as an aesthetic review package detailing the project architecture. Both are scheduled to go before the Planning and Zoning Board and City Commission in the near future.
"They're close," Community Development Director Brian Fields told GrowthSpotter. "Once it's approved by the City Commission, they can break ground. It'll probably be within the next 90 days."
Lot sizes will vary from bungalow-sized 34-foot lots to 70-foot estate lots. The submittal included 35 different floorplan options, each with three exterior elevations, starting at 1,574 square feet. At more than 4,450 square feet, the six-bedroom Mansfield model is the largest.
Officials with CalAtlantic said they expect to start construction in the spring and open the community in 2018. Amenities will include a pool and cabana, tot lot, dog park and walking trails.
The builder currently has 49 active projects in the Orlando market, according to its website.
