Beazer Homes is under contract for land just south of Lake Monroe with plans to build a new townhome community in Sanford.
The homebuilder assigned Javier Omana with CPH Inc. to annex and rezone roughly 22 acres at 2485 W. Seminole Blvd. with plans to build 104 townhomes.
The community is called Townes at Lake Monroe and is generally located northwest of the intersection between Riverview Avenue/Oak Drive and Narcissus Avenue, in Sanford’s Lake Monroe Waterfront Corridor.
In October, Sanford’s City Commission approved the annexation and rezoning request.
Once the property was annexed into the city it was assigned a Waterfront Downtown Business District Future Land Use designation, meaning any project built on the land must abide by city guidelines meant to preserve the historic downtown character.
Conceptual plans show Townes at Lake Monroe will feature a minimum of 20-foot-wide and 32-foot-wide lots. Other listed features include an amenity area and overflow parking areas. Townhomes will have garages and tandem driveways. The end units will have 2-car garages, while the interior units will have a 1-car garage.
The current property owners are Triple B Acquisitions LLC and Leo C. Trepanier Revocable Trust.
According to submitted development records, Beazer Homes plans to align the construction of Townes at Lake Monroe with the third phase of the Sanford RiverWalk Trail and Roadway project, which consists of the construction of 2.5 miles of recreational trail space.
In addition, the third phase will add new streetlights, roundabouts, and landscaping. Sidewalk connections will provide Townes residents access to the trail, as well as the LYNX and SunRail transportation systems.
Currently, Beazer Homes is working to approve a proposed right-of-way use permit with Seminole County. A Preliminary Subdivision Plan is in the process of being reviewed by the City of Sanford.
The Atlanta-based homebuilder is active throughout Central Florida, with communities in Clermont, Kissimmee and Lake Nona.
Earlier this summer, GrowthSpotter reported Beazer Homes launched plans to develop a 341-lot subdivision in the Wellness Way area of Clermont. It’s entitling about 275 acres just south of the Olympus Sports & Entertainment mixed-use district.
In Kissimmee, it developed a 150-lot single-family home community called Marbella. The subdivision is located along Boggy Creek Road and features a pool, cabana and dog park.
In Lake Nona, Beazer is selling residential units at its 55-plus condo community called The Gatherings. The company completed a townhouse community in Horizon West called Summerlake in 2018.
Last year, the homebuilder became the first national builder to publicly commit to ensuring every home it builds is “Net Zero Energy Ready” by the end of 2025.
