Houston-based Morgan Group Inc. plans to build a 276-unit housing complex on the site of a mobile home park west of Interstate 95 along Broward Boulevard.
Fort Lauderdale city commissioners unanimously voted to allow denser residential development at Sunset Colony Mobile Home Park.
Morgan Group has a contract to buy the 11-acre mobile home park from Clarkson-Bergman Family Partnership.
The Houston-based company plans to build a complex of six residential buildings as tall as four stories on the 11-acre site of the mobile home park.
Sunset Colony Mobile Home Park has 110 manufactured homes and is located behind a Walmart Supercenter department store at the intersection of Southwest 27 Avenue and West Broward Boulevard.
Most of the manufactured homes are owned by the park owner and rented on a month-to-month basis to tenants.
