A development team consisting of Oviedo-based Brockman Site Development is rounding up about 55 acres of land in Apopka for a new residential community called Hamrick Estates.
Plans for the project call for 111 single-family homes on a mix of 95-foot wide lots and 70-foot wide lots, set to rise on a three-parcel assemblage centrally located at 3220 Pittman Rd., east of S.R. 429.
In August, Wekiva Pointe LLC, an entity linked to Brockman and led by out-of-state real estate investors Robert “Bob” Wallen and Alan Miller, paid almost $351,000 for the first roughly 30 acres of property.
The remaining 20 acres are currently owned by the Annette L. Peck Revocable Trust, which lists Kenneth W. Peck as a trustee.
A representative at Brockman was not immediately available to comment. The development team is operating under the entity name: PMDW Ventures, LLC.
Lake Mary-based G. L. Summitt Engineering is the engineer.
The development team is seeking a density that will allow for no more than two residences per acre. Apopka’s Development Review Committee recommends approving the project, under certain conditions.
Earlier this summer, plans for the project received pushback from homeowners from the neighboring Rock Springs Ridge community over a planned connection from Hamrick Estates.
As a result, the proposed entrance into Hamrick Estates will be off of Pittman Road.
Development plans for Hamrick Estates go before the city’s planning commission on Tuesday. If all goes well, plans will then go before its city council in November.
On the west side of S.R. 429, two additional single-family residential communities are also being planned along Ponkan Road.
Earlier this summer, Tampa-based Mercury Advisors activated development plans for its proposed 98 single-family home community called Grassmere Reserve. The project is slated to start construction by the second quarter of next year. It sits close by, on the southeast corner of Ponkan Road and Junction Road.
