This past Tuesday, Standard Pacific of Florida won approval to rezone 288 acres in Broward County’s area know as the wedge in Parkland, Florida. This wedge-shaped area is located between County Line Road and Loxahatchee Road on 1,949 acres. A recent House Bill 1315 permitted the boundary change from Palm Beach County to be annexeted into nearby Parkland.
The South Florida Business Journal reported that, “The Standard Pacific of Florida site is bound on the north by the Hillsboro Canal and Palm Beach County, on the east by a parcel that is currently home to grazing cattle, on the south by the Heron Bay residential community and on the west by a parcel that has agricultural uses.”
The new step for the builder is to seek approval from the City of Parkland to plat the site for future development. Obviously, Standard Pacific will seek the proper city permits to being construction from Parkland’s planning and redevelopment division and the Parkland Commission. The City of Parkland has already instituted a 178-page report detailing its master plan for “the wedge” that the it will soon control.
This is exciting news for the residents of Parkland and local businesses. Parkland is growing at a rapid rate. Nowhere else in South Florida has seen such an increase in building residential homes than in Parkland, Florida. There has been tremendous success as of late with developments in Parkland Golf & Country Club, Heron Bay, & Centerline’s Parkland Reserve project.
Standard Pacific Homes is a California-based builder that has been building homes since 1965. They currently have 3 South Florida pre-construction projects going on, including San Mellina, which is a single family community in Coconut Creek, Florida. I will certainly keep the Parkland public abreast of further information on this project as it comes available.
