The Parkland City Commission will evaluate potential developers for a new luxury residential neighborhood on the former Heron Bay Golf Course.
Final contenders are Mattamy Homes, K. Hovnanian, and Toll Brothers, chosen from an initial pool of 11 companies.
Mattamy Homes propose 52 houses, with prices ranging from $1.45 million to $1.6 million. The proposal includes features like lush landscaping, a dog park, and a Zen garden.
Two purchase options are available at $17,707,000 and $18,900,000. Development is projected to start in April 2024, with sales beginning in early 2025.
K. Hovnanian plans to construct 52 homes with a purchase price of $19,500,000.
The homes would be between 3,000 and 4,100 square feet, each priced between $1.6 million and $2 million.
A $25,000 homebuyer’s letter of credit is required within ten days of the agreement. Development can proceed after meeting various conditions, such as site approval and confirmation of no soil or water contamination.
Toll Brothers plan consists of 47 homes priced between $1.5 million and $2.1 million.
It includes 2.69 acres of open green space and water buffers. Different plans exist depending on the number of homes approved, with purchase prices varying between $15,620,000 and $18,460,000.
A $1,000,000 deposit is required, with a monthly fee of $10,000. Land development would commence around Dec. 2024, with the first home closings estimated for Feb. 2026.
The commission plans to vote on a ranking offer of the final three developers for Heron Bay at their regular meeting, starting Wednesday, June 7, at 7 p.m.
