A spokeswoman for DR Horton told the Sun-Sentinel that construction is expected to start in the spring at the 14-acre site, which will be named Jaxon Park.

Prices are expected to range from $299,000 to $399,000 for houses with three to five bedrooms and 1,500 square feet to 2,500 square feet of interior space.

In September, Tuttle announced that he sold 30 acres in Lake Worth for $16.6 million to FCI Residential, an arm of sugar cane giant Florida Crystals, which plans to build as many as 362 apartments on the site at 8238 Lake Worth Road and 4444 Hooks Road. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
