David Weekley Homes and Pulte Homes have signed on to build a combined 116 homes in the Trevesta master-planned community in Manatee County, Fla., while D.R. Horton plans a new 502-home community in the Jacksonville market.
David Weekley will build 26 homes with Pulte starting construction on 90 homes in the Sarasota area Trevesta development.
Situated on 60-foot homesites, Trevesta homes, from Imagination by David Weekley Homes, will be built in the gated section of the community. Weekley will offer eight floorplans ranging from 1,900 to 3,000 s.f., with pricing starting from the low $300,000s.
Pulte Homes has broken ground on the Summerwood Grand model home at its newest single-family home community
Sean Strickler, Pulte’s West Florida Division president, said a grand opening of the Summerwood Grand model is scheduled for this fall, with presales now underway.
Pulte is offering nine of its Life Tested home designs with two to five bedrooms and two to three-and-a-half baths, starting from $214,990 to $293,890.
Homebuyers in Trevesta will have access to the three-acre Lake Trevesta Club amenity center. The club is situated on a large lake and features a 5,600-square-foot clubhouse, 24-hour fitness center, resort-style pools with cabanas, playground, interactive splash park and a lakeside trail.
D.R. Horton has applied for a permit to clear 159 acres for its 502-lot single-family residential development in Florida’s North Jacksonville area.
The city council there enacted an ordinance in April to rezone almost 279 acres for the Alta Lakes development. The property was rezoned from one planned unit development to another.
According to a statement released by D.R. Horton, Alta Lakes will feature its D.R. Horton and Express Homes brands, several lakes and an amenity center.
Development for Alta Lakes is scheduled to begin in August, with sales expected to start in summer 2018. Pricing is projected to be from the $180,000s to the low-$300,000s.
D.R. Horton bought the land June 1 from First-Citizens Bank & Trust Co. for $4.5 million.
Documents filed with the legislation show up to 505 single-family homes on almost 79 acres, along with 121 acres of passive open space, 33 acres of public and private right-of-way, 23 acres of recreation and open space and 23 acres of other uses.
The site clearing appears to cover all but the passive open space.
