Boyd affiliate, in joint venture, plans adult living for Hamlin

Boyd Development Corp. is part of a joint venture planning to develop an 85,789-square-foot adult-living facility along Hamlin Groves Trail in Horizon West, according to plans filed with Orange County.

The Blake at Hamlin would be built on 3.26 acres adjacent to Horizon West Sportsplex land northeast of the State Road 429 interchange with New Independence Parkway. SLF IV / Boyd Horizon West JV LLC is the owner and developer listed on the project.


Preliminary plans show approximately 100 bedrooms of varying sizes and configurations, some of which can be shared with separate sleeping quarters, as well as administrative offices and shared spaces such as activity rooms, sitting areas and food-service spaces.

Renderings show a two-story building with residences of varying sizes and configurations built around two interior courtyards with partial covered areas.


Kelly, Collins & Gentry of Orlando is engineer and Wier Boerner Allin Architecture of Jackson, Miss., is architect, with Allen & Co. of Winter Garden as surveyor, Terracon of Winter Park on geotech and Trent Rhodes Landscape Architect of Jackson, Miss., on landscape architecture. Representatives with Boyd Development could not be immediately reached for comment.

Other recent activity in the area involving Boyd includes:

  • Designs for up to three new office buildings in nearby Hamlin Town Center, with building pads cleared near Lake Hancock in the middle of the town center, located adjacent to the Cinépolis movie theater and the submarket possibly ready for office product now that retail, multifamily and single-family homes have been established.
  • The August sale of 4 acres to Tampa-based Rave Commercial LLC, which plans professional offices and retail in a quartet of buildings with 40,000 square feet of space and a goal of breaking ground in February.
  • The April sale of 42 acres on Hamlin Groves Trail northeast of Walmart to home builder Taylor Morrison for $4.3 million, in the builder’s third land purchase in Hamlin.
