Home builder WCI Communities has announced a major marketing effort for the 196 new homes it has planned for Heron Bay in the city of Parkland, now that it’s won approval from the city. According to the company, 115 single-family homes, beginning in the mid-$300,000s, are on their way for Heron Bay’s Somerset neighborhood, while the Sawgrass Bay neighborhood will be getting 81 new homes with prices starting in the $500,000s. WCI has faced considerable opposition in Parkland after many of the homes it built there before the real estate crash were found to be tainted with toxic Chinese drywall. Because WCI filed for bankruptcy in 2008, it did not pay to fix the homes, and some residents had lobbied city commissioners to ban the company from building there again. Commissioners begrudgingly agreed to give WCI the go-ahead, though, because they said they couldn’t legally bar the company from the city. WCI has scheduled the launch of its sales office in Heron Bay for this weekend. [Sun Sentinel]
