A former Tamarac golf course tied to a public corruption scandal is about to be redeveloped into a single-family home community.

Developer Central Communities plans to launch sales and start construction of the 253-residence Central Parc next month, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Home prices start in the low $200,000s. The 40-acre site, which was previously the Sabal Palm golf course, is located at the northwest corner of Commercial Boulevard and Florida’s Turnpike.

Central is an affiliate of Miami-based 13th Floor Investments. It plans a second phase of 174 single-family homes on 60 acres across from Central Parc.

The developer picked up both sites in 2011 following the guilty pleas of builders Bruce and Shawn Chait to charges of unlawful compensation. The Chaits were accused of trying to buy influence from Tamarac politicians so they could develop the Sabal Palm and Monterey golf courses. [Sun-Sentinel]Eric Kalis
