The development would bring 420 new homes and almost 90,000 feet of commercial space at a site north of the intersection of U.S. 1 and Seminole Woods Boulevard.
A proposal for a development of 420 new homes and almost 90,000 feet of commercial space at a site north of the intersection of U.S. 1 and Seminole Woods Boulevard won the City Council's initial approval at a July 19 meeting.
The council voted 4-0 in favor of a rezoning required for the development to move forward. One council member, Eddie Branquinho, recused himself from the vote because of prior interactions he'd had with the developer.
The proposed development had also earned the planning board's unanimous support at a meeting on June 14.
The homes would be "horizontal multifamily" units such as duplexes and triplexes, and the rezoning shifts the boundaries between the commercial and multifamily areas of the site, making the multifamily section bigger.
The developer expects to complete the residential section of the development first, and must submit a master site plan or technical site plan to the city for approval before construction can begin.
