The Palm Beach Gardens city council approved construction of 24 houses on a seven-acre site next to an existing residential community.

Mayor Maria Marino voted with majority of the council in favor of the residential project, which she called a well-conceived development that won’t reduce the values of nearby properties.

Parkwood Distinctive Homes of Gainesville plans to build the houses on a site west of Florida’s Turnpike on Hood Road that spans about seven acres.

Parkwood bought the Palm Beach Gardens development site last year for $2.55 million.

Residents of a neighboring residential community called Mirabella complained that the planned home-building project would put new two-story houses near existing one-story houses at Mirabella, and would add be an excessive addition to nearby residential development activity, including Kolter Group’s construction of the Alton community.

But the city council voted 4-1 in favor of the project. The sole council member who voted against the project, Matthew Lane, resides in Mirabella. [Palm Beach Post] – Mike Seemuth
