Neighborhood Development

Written by Darren Chase          

As a real estate broker and builder relatively new to this area, I still have an almost obsessive interest in land ownership, property sales, and construction projects. I thought I would put my sleuthing skills to good use and figure out what’s going on with the lands near Wynfield.

Here is what we know:

  •  For now, I think our pastures are safe from development. The 100 acres of land across Dickerson is owned by one multi-generational family who all still live there. It is unlikely that these folks would sell their land and ruin the peaceful bucolic setting they have enjoyed for generations.
  • There are 70 acres of land on either side of Post that is jointly owned by two sisters in a trust. In 2014, it looks like they sold 5 acres to a Senior Living Developer. That project is on hold indefinitely, according to the developer. The sisters have resisted other developers’ temptations thus far and probably will for the foreseeable future. But what will the next generation do??
  • The major construction of the east side of Post, across from Publix, is a development by Lennar. Midway Village is to be a townhome community on 8 acres. I found some plans and determined they are squeezing 56 units onto the land in clusters of 3 or 4. However, there is not a stoplight for them.
  • Finally, you may have noticed another development sign for Tabas LLP. They own the land between Midway Village and the shopping center with the Rite-Aid on the corner. The County rejected their initial plan on 26 acres with 156 attached homes and 35,000 sq ft of commercial space, but it looks like they are moving forward with 86 attached residences and the same 35,000 sq ft of commercial.

I hope you found this information interesting and, like you, I am also worried about the impact of the Post Rd Development. If you have any questions about real estate, properties or developments let me know and I will get you an answer.
