Codina-Carr Homes’ plan for the White Course is taking shape with the launch of custom homes on the property adjacent to Downtown Doral, The Real Deal has learned.

Canarias, in the Residences at Downtown Doral, will feature 343 single-family homes and 52 townhomes spread among six residential “collections,” the project’s developers said.  

“Downtown Doral never had a single-family product,” Armando Codina, principal and founder of CC Homes and executive chairman of Codina Partners told TRD. “Now Downtown Doral will have a single-family product.”

Codina Partners with Jim Carr’s CC Homes and Stuart Miller’s Lennar Corp. won the bid for the White Course in Doral, paying a total of about $96 million to acquire the golf course in April of last year, with plans for redevelopment. Lennar and Codina split the property 50/50. On Codina’s portion, he and his business partner Jim Carr, principal and founder of CC Homes, had said they planned to develop single-family homes and townhomes.

The 130-acre course is adjacent to Downtown Doral, Codina Partners’ 120-acre mixed-use development with condo towers, retail and restaurants, a Publix supermarket, a school and more.

“The thought process on the White Course was a continuation of Downtown Doral,” Carr told TRD. “Downtown Doral is a downtown, a hub, high-density urban living, with big buildings, so like any city, your density gets lower as you get away from downtown.”

The aim is for the single-family homes to be “an urban, hip product,” Carr said. “This is really in-town, urban single-family living, to walk to the shopping, and the schools are the most important part of the community.”

Home prices begin at $800,000, with townhomes priced from just under $600,000 to the $700,000s. Sizes range from 1,687 square feet to more than 4,780 square feet.

The homes will have such luxury features as Subzero appliances. “This is not track housing,” Codina said. “People are picking their appliances, colors. This is a custom home in a place with schools and shops and Publix.”

Canarias will include a 40,000-square-foot clubhouse featuring a pool, cabanas, tiki bar, and fitness center among other amenities.

Construction will begin in June and July for pre-sold homes, Carr said, and residents are expected to start moving in during the first quarter of next year.

Meanwhile, Downtown Doral ‘s second condo tower, 5300 Paseo, recently sold out for $88 million, and the first tower, 5252 Paseo, was completed about a year ago. The first phase of retail and restaurants is open, with a second phase planned, and Publix is under construction, Codina said. Next in the pipeline is 5350 Park, which is about 50 percent sold.
