Amenities would include a pool with cabana, playground, two walking paths, exercise stations, picnic tables and a soccer field. The property is bordered by low-density residential and rural land. The number of homes has varied in previous filings with the county.
Development in Apopka and Mount Dora has jumped with the expansion of the State Road 429 toll highway and connecting spurs. In neighboring Lake County, Mount Dora's plans for a Wolf Branch Innovation District on 1,300 acres east of the city would affect 172 mostly vacant parcels with 134 different owners from the Orange County line north to Wolf Branch Road.
That district is aimed at attracting high-value and high-wage employers such as information technology and health care while leveraging – and protecting – Mount Dora's unique qualities including creativity, public amenities and events, Levey Consulting LLC head Richard Levey said in June.
