Lennar wants to build a pair of residential communities with 369 homes, combined, near Homestead, marking the firm’s continued wager on south Miami-Dade County. 

The Miami-based homebuilder proposes 158 condos in several two-story buildings, and 97 single-family homes on 29 acres on the northeast corner of Southwest 232nd Street and Southwest 112th Avenue in unincorporated Miami-Dade, according to an application Lennar filed to the county last week. Lennar has the land under contract for an undisclosed amount. 

An entity led by the Canals family owns the parcel, according to records. 

Lennar also wants to build a two-story complex with 114 condos on 8.7 acres at 12420 and 12400 Southwest 248th Street in the Princeton neighborhood, according to an application the firm submitted to the county last week.

An entity led by the Bullis family owns the site, records show. 

Led by Stuart Miller and Jon Jaffe, Lennar has zeroed in on south Miami-Dade in recent years. 

The area consists of the Homestead and Florida City municipalities, as well as neighborhoods such as Princeton, Naranja, Goulds and Leisure City. South Miami-Dade offers a healthy supply of developable land that comes at a discount compared to sites in Miami’s urban core. 

This month, Lennar paid $7 million for a 40-acre development site between Southwest 336th and 240th street, with plans for 231 homes. 

Near Homestead, the homebuilder proposed 150 single-family homes on 21 acres on the northwest corner of Southwest 316th Street and Southwest 14th Avenue.
