The property owner of a large undeveloped site next to city limits of Mount Dora in Orange County just activated plans for a 188-lot subdivision tied to Houston, Texas-based homebuilder David Weekley Homes.
A recently submitted Land Use Plan in Orange County shows property owner Timothy Bailey is looking to rezone about 63.5 acres of agricultural land at 6989 N. Orange Blossom Trl. to Planned Development (PD) in order to construct 188 single-family detached residential dwelling units and associated amenity center.
In the proposed Parks at Mount Dora Land Use Plan (LUP) David Weekley Homes was listed as the contracted homebuilder.
Timothy Green with Green Consulting Group Inc. is representing the property owner in the rezoning application. Green declined to comment on the contracted homebuilder. Representatives with David Weekley homes declined requests for comment.
Records show property owner Parks Of Mt Dora LLC, led by Timothy Bailey, purchased the site in 2005 for about $1.2 million.
The project along Orange Blossom Trail (U.S. Highway 441) sits near Lennar’s Stoneybrook Hills residential community. More than 350 homes are planned for the final phases. Lennar has been slowly building out the community since the mid-2000′s. As part of those plans, Lennar helped extend Stoneybrook Hills Parkway to the south.
Less than four miles south along U.S. Highway 441, Hanover Family Builders is building out another new residential subdivision that will consist of roughly 180 single-family home sites, once complete. The homebuilder paid $5.2 million to acquire the fully-entitled, 158-acre site last year.
GrowthSpotter wrote about plans in 2019 when civil engineer Robert Paymayesh with PE Group helped the former property owner extend the sewer and water lines by more than a mile to remove the use of a septic tank in the area.
Meanwhile, David Weekley is completing or has recently completed several residential communities throughout Central Florida.
The company is in the midst of developing a 79-unit townhome community on Clarke Road in Ocoee called Lake Meadow Townhomes. The community features townhomes with two-car garages, a community amenity center and a gated entrance.
Weekley also planning its first Osceola County project in the East Narcoossee area. The homebuilder is under contract for a 56-lot subdivision at the intersection of Oesterle and Zuni roads, north of Brack Ranch on Jack Brack Road.
In Lake County, David Weekley is completing the final phase within the John’s Lake Landing single-family home community. The 310-acre John’s Lake Landing PUD is located south of State Road 50, between Hartle Road and Magnolia Pointe Boulevard.
David Weekley closed over 225 homes in John’s Lake Landing since beginning development in 2014. The final phase is expected to be platted with more than 85 home sites later this year.
Last year, the homebuilder launched sales for its 72-unit Flora Gardens single-family home community along Goldenrod Road, just north of Orlando International Airport. Sales at the community have since closed out, according to its website.
