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.

The park tenants will be given at least four months to relocate, according to Robert Lochrie, an attorney representing Morgan Group. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
