More homes are being planned along Goldenrod Road, north of Orlando International Airport.
Orlando-based Galleon Consulting Group LLC recently submitted a Land Use Plan in Orange County detailing its intention to create a 110-lot subdivision for single-family attached residential dwelling units at 2504 S. Goldenrod Road.
The application follows plans by Houston-headquartered David Weekley Homes to develop a 72-lot single-family home subdivision nearby at 3522 and 3412 S. Goldenrod Rd. called Flora Gardens.
The community was officially platted in April. It’s being offered by a division of David Weekley that focuses on buildings houses geared toward first-time buyers.
Corinne Giacomarro, a spokesperson for the company, said seven home sites have closed at the community since launching sales two weeks ago. A model home at Flora Gardens opened for tours this week.
Latest plans by Galleon Consulting Group show the company is working to assemble four adjacent parcels that add up to about 17 acres along Goldenrod Road. The property is about 15 minutes north of OIA.
Neel Shivcharran, a principal at Galleon, told GrowthSpotter he’s been paying attention to the east Orange County submarket for some time now.
“There’s two communities we looked at, one by Park Square Homes and the other by Meritage Homes,” Shivcharran said. “Their sales were robust and at the same time they managed to increase sale price... that’s always a good indication.”
Prior to working at Galleon, Shivcharran worked at David Weekley as its land acquisitions manager. He helped David Weekley secure the site just north of where he’s now planning a new townhome community.
The site plan shows the project will feature a playground and passive park area, recreational pool area and a stormwater pond west of Goldenrod Road, toward the back of the community.
LandDesign Inc. is the civil engineer. Currently, the parcels are owned by the Watkins Family Trust, Dale Frances Brazale, Frances Bandy and the Orlando Church of Christ.
Shivcharran said the company has been working to secure contracts with the homeowners since last year. He said he hopes to have a site development plan in Orange County by the second quarter of 2021.
With the objective to stay in line with Mayor Jerry Demings’ “Housing For All” task force’s action plan, he said prices will stay below the low $250,000′s.
“The action plan that calls for a variety of housing types,” Shivcharran said. “South Goldenrod Townhomes will help fill the void of reaching the 19,000 attainable and affordable housing goal by 2030.”
