Parkland Commission Selects Top Developer for Luxury Homes on Iconic Golf Course Land 1
Toll Brothers Conceptual Design.

The Parkland city commission has ranked Toll Brothers as their preferred developer to construct luxury homes on the 21-acre former Heron Bay Golf Course. 

K. Hovnanian and Mattamy Homes were chosen as the second and third choices, respectively. 

Though no sale has been made, the vote will allow City Manager Nancy Morando and City Attorney Anthony Soroka to commence negotiations with Toll Brothers.

All three developers’ preliminary plans contain 52 luxury homes and propose buying the land for $17-$20 million. The selection process was a partnership with Colliers International which, out of 11 proposals, shortlisted four developers for the commission’s May 17 workshop. Seven final offers were made, with three selected.

In 2022, the city purchased the land from the North Springs Improvement District for $25 million.

While K. Hovnanian’s proposal raised concerns about small setbacks, potential density, and drainage issues, and Mattamy Homes’ plan drew attention due to proposed lot widths and a lack of clarity regarding problem-solving measures, Toll Brothers’ proposal did not face major objections. 

Jordan Isrow said overall, Toll Brothers listened to the commission, included everything they asked for, and demonstrated a good amount of reliability and credibility.

“We want to make sure that this is something not only we’re proud of, but Heron Bay is proud of,” he said.

Commissioners also emphasized the importance of the developer being a good partner with the city, not only focusing on the purchase price but also on the overall quality of the community.

The commission approved Toll Brothers as the top choice, with only Commissioner Bob Mayersohn voting no.
