Homebuilder WCI Communities is closing in on the completion of the 1,700-acre Heron Bay community in northwest Broward County.

WCI announced on Tuesday that it is developing the last two neighborhoods in master-planned Heron Bay. The Hawthorne and Estuary subdivisions will have a combined 106 homes along Hillsboro Boulevard. Prices for the three, four and five-bedrooms homes range from the $500,000s to more than $1 million.

Once Hawthorne and Estuary are finished, only a few individual parcels for custom homes will be left to build out at the Heron Bay site, WCI division president Jon Rapaport told the Sun-Sentinel.

“I don’t want to say it’s the end of an era, but it’s a big deal, because this was an important community when it started,” Rapaport said. “A lot of the kids who were born in this community are now in and out of college.”

WCI built most of the nearly 3,000 homes at Heron Bay, which opened during the late 1990s. The builder filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in 2008 and emerged one year later. WCI resumed the development of Heron Bay in 2011. [Sun-Sentinel]Eric Kalis
