Lennar broke ground for construction of 385 houses on the former site of a municipal water treatment plant in Royal Palm Beach, which the village demolished in 2009.

In 2015, Miami-based Lennar paid the village $35 million for the 154-acre development site, just west of H.L. Johnson Elementary School off Crestwood Boulevard.

Lennar’s gated residential development, called BellaSera, will have house prices starting in the low $400,000s.

The one- and two-story houses will have three to five bedrooms and two to five and a half bathrooms and garages for two or three cars.

Through Lennar’s partnership with online retailer Amazon, BellaSera houses will come equipped with Amazon’s voice-activated digital assistant Alexa.

In addition, “this will be our first completely Wi-Fi certified community,” which eliminates Wi-Fi dead spots in houses, Dan Grosswald, president of Lennar’s Palm Atlantic Division, told the Palm Beach Post.

BellaSera also will feature a clubhouse with a gym, swimming pool and playground, plus basketball and tennis courts. [Palm Beach Post] – Mike Seemuth
