The Palm Beach County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved plans for Avalon Trails, an age-restricted residential development for residents 55 and older.

The 107-acre site of Avalon Trails is a former golf course in an area of Palm Beach County known as West Delray.

The home-building arm of 13th Floor Investments won approval of its plans for Avalon Trails, including construction of 521 homes on the former Marina Lakes Golf Course, which closed more than two years ago.

Prices for houses and villas at Avalon Trails will range from the mid-$200,000s to $500,000.

Avalon Trails will feature a 2.4-mile fitness trail that will be available to residents of the Villages of Oriole, a cluster of 12 residential communities near Avalon Trails.

Avalon Trails also will have clubhouses, swimming pools, card rooms, exercise facilities, business centers and billiards areas. Other common-area amenities will include tennis and pickle ball courts, bocce ball facilities, landscape walkways and lakefront park areas.

Residents of the Villages of Oriole voted this year to support the Avalon Trails development. “This process was truly a collaborative approach,” Mike Nunziata, president of 13th Floor’s Homes Division, said in a prepared statement.
