Plans for a Royal Palm Beach project that has been referred to as the CityPlace of the West are coming closer to fruition as one phase of the Tuttle Royale development scored approval from village officials.
Royal Palm Beach’s village council voted to approve variances and a site plan that allow for 100 zero-lot-line homes — or houses that come close to the edge of the property — to be built on about 34 acres, according to the Palm Beach Post. Most of the homes will be built on 45-foot-wide lots.
The new residential development is part of a $650 million master-planned community led by developer Brian Tuttle that will include 1,000 apartments, 100 single-family homes, a charter school, a park and a 32-acre commercial center.
Tuttle told the council that Toll Brothers is under contract to build the homes, the Post reported. He originally sought to build townhomes on the property, but after some objections from the nearby neighborhood, he changed plans to single-family homes.
Tuttle began assembling the land from more than 100 owners in 2013.
About three years ago, he sold roughly 30 acres of the community to the Miami-based Related Group for $12.5 million. [Palm Beach Post] — Keith Larsen
