Home builder PulteGroup has proposed a downsized development on a former golf course in Oakland Park.

PulteGroup could start building 288 houses and 117 townhouses on the former Oak Tree Golf Course by the end of 2019.

The home builder originally proposed 850 homes, mostly townhouses, but drew criticism from Oakland Park residents and settled for a smaller development.

The development is pending the city’s approval of zoning and site-plan applications by PulteGroup, which has a contract to buy the former golf course from Blackwood Partners LLC and Blackshore Partners LLC.

Prices would start in the $300,000s for the planned townhouses and would range from the $400,000s to the $600,000s for the planned one- and two-story houses, Andrew Maxey, director of land acquisition at PulteGroup, told the Sun-Sentinel. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
