The path has been cleared for Toll Brothers to break ground on an 232-home, active-adult community in East Allen Township, Pennsylvania.
The Board of Supervisors Wednesday granted conditional-use approval to Toll Brothers for Regency at Creekside Meadows, a 55-plus community of 232 homes to be built on 100 acres along the western side of Route 512. They also approved a zoning map amendment to allow for an age-qualified residential community overlay district to encompass the parcel, which is zoned for agricultural use.
Toll Brothers plan calls for a mix of 142 single-family homes, 54 triplex homes and 36 duplexes, said Mike Dougherty, senior project manager.
Dougherty said it is "highly unlikely" that construction will begin in 2017 because the sale still must be finalized. Toll Brothers also needs to obtain a highway occupancy permit from PennDOT, he said.
Amenities will include a community center and pool, putting green and bocce ball court
The developer has an agreement of sale in place to purchase the land from David Jaindl conditioned upon final approvals from the township.
Although as part of the approval, 80 percent of the occupied units must have at least one resident who is 55 years of age or older. But Dougherty said the goal is to require 100 percent. Toll Brothers will police the requirement as it sells the properties, he said, after which time the homeowner's association will assume the responsibility.

PulteGroup has contracted to buy part of a closed golf course in Tamarac, Fla., where it could build as many as 152 homes. Pulte is purchasing the 44.1-acre site at the Woodmont Country Club from the owner of the club.
The owner, Woodmont Country Club Inc., previously obtained regulatory approval to build 152 houses on a 9 of 18 closed holes on its golf course. Another 18 holes at the golf course are still open.
Brent Baker, president of the Southeast Florida division of Pulte, told the South Florida Business Journal that Woodmont plans to use proceeds from the nine-hole property sale to build a new clubhouse and to upgrade and reopen nine holes of the golf course, increasing the total number to 27 holes.
Baker also told the business journal that he expects Pulte to close the Woodmont property purchase in the April-May period, to open a sales center by fall, and to finish building the first homes there as early as spring of 2018.
House sizes will be 2,400 square feet to 3,300 square feet, and prices start in the low $400,000s.
Pulte also has begun building houses and townhouses on a former golf course at the Hillcrest Country Club in Hollywood, Fla.
