Lennar’s Parkland development gets planning nod

November 20, 2008 12:27PM

Miami-Dade County’s Planning Advisory Board voted 7-3 to recommend that
commissioners move the urban development boundary in western
Miami-Dade. The boundary shift would accommodate Lennar Corp.’s Parkland, a 961-acre
development with about 7,000 homes. Parkland has drawn opposition
from those worried about its proposed location only about 2.5 miles from
Everglades National Park, and whether the project will add more suburban
sprawl to traffic-clogged neighboring West Kendall. The developer said the first homes would be
available in 2014.
