Mattamy Homes has filed plans for the first amenity center for its 2,560-acre Meridian Parks master-planned community north of Lake Nona.
Orlando's Municipal Planning Board is expected to vote next week on the Specific Parcel Master Plan, which includes the fourth phase of residential development and the first of what could be multiple amenity center.
The amenities include a pool with spacious deck and splash pad, a clubhouse with a party room and fitness center, an amphitheater, an event lawn, playgrounds and outdoor art. The neighborhood park, bike station and other outdoor areas will be open to the general public, while the pool and clubhouse facilities will be restricted to residents and their guests.
The first three phases now underway comprise nearly 500 residential units on a variety of lot sizes. The next phase adds 22 townhomes and 23 detached single family homes on 40-, 50- and 60-foot lots.
Dewberry Engineers filed the SPMP on behalf of Mattamy.
The Planned Development, formerly called Starwood, is entitled for more than 4,000 single-family homes, 2,000 multifamily homes and nearly 500,000 square feet of retail/office uses. Mattamy became the exclusive builder of the community in 2017 when it formed a partnership with Beachline South Residential, owner and developer of the Starwood property.
Meridian Parks is located east of S.R. 417 and south of S.R. 528, with access through an extension of Dowden Road. The community will be served by a new high school and elementary school and it will have a 20-plus mile system of interconnected walking trails and bike paths.
