GL Homes plans new community west of Delray Beach


GL Homes continues its quest to build homes throughout central and southern Palm Beach County.

In addition to trying to buy land for new homes at the Fountains Country Club community near Lake Worth, GL Homes quietly also is moving forward with a new development planned for west of Delray Beach.

Plans are to build between 350 to 387 homes on a 114-acre tract of land on the east side of State Road 7, south of Atlantic Avenue, said GL Homes vice president Larry Portnoy.

This as-yet unnamed development will be available for sale to all age buyers, unlike some GL Homes communities, which limit buyers to 55 years and up, Portnoy said.

Prices are expected to range between $450,000 to $650,000 for the homes.

The project is expected to take the rest of the year to approve and plan, Portnoy said, with construction slated to start next year.

Meanwhile, members of the Fountains Country Club are expected to vote June 20 on a proposed deal to sell parts of one of the club’s golf course to GL Homes.

GL wants to build 470 homes at the Fountains, including 150 to 200 single-family homes and 250 to 300 apartments.
