Coral Gables-based Codina Partners plans to buy a 10-acre palm nursery in Doral and build 250 apartments there if the city amends its land-use plan.

The Doral City Council will meet Wednesday and is expected to take preliminary vote on a proposed change in the city’s land-use designation for the 10-acre property to high-density residential from business and office/residential.

Codina Partners, led by developer Armando Codina, has a contract to buy the 10-acre property, which is contingent upon a change in its land-use designation allowing for construction of 250 apartments in four buildings, each five stories tall.

The current land-use designation for the property would allow construction of 77 residential units and 800,000 square feet of office space.

Tropical Treeworks, a landscaping and nursery business, now occupies the 10-acre property, located behind a strip shopping center on Northwest 41 Street between 107 Avenue and 109 Avenue.

Codina Partners paid for a traffic study by David Plummer & Associates showing that the real estate company’s planned Doral 4200 development with 250 rental apartments would generate 1,600 daily vehicle trips.

That compares with 8,000 daily trips that would be generated by 77 residential units and 800,000 square feet of office space, as allowed by Doral’s current land-use plan, Plummer & Associates found.
