Miami-based Lennar Corp. broke ground last week for a master-planned development of single-family homes in Parkland, the only part of Broward County with enough vacant land for major home-building projects.

Lennar began construction and sales of the 552-home development, called Parkland Bay, located near the intersection of West Hillsboro Boulevard and Nob Hill Road.

The mayor of Parkland, Christine Hunschofsky, said the 400-acre Parkland Bay project is one of the last large-scale housing developments in the city’s pipeline of projects.

Homes at Parkland Bay will range in size from 2,250 square feet to 7,000 square feet. Prices will start in the $500,000s and range up to $2 million. Lennar expects the first buyers to occupy their homes in early 2018.

A 178-acre lake is located in the heart of the Parkland Bay site. Other shared amenities will include a clubhouse spanning 16,000 square feet plus tennis courts and a swimming pool, spa, fitness center, entertainment pavilion and culinary arts facility.

WCI Communities, which Lennar acquired earlier this year, initially sought city approvals for the Parkland Bay development. [Sun-Sentinel] Mike Seemuth
