PARKLAND, FL-WCI Communities Inc., a developer based in Bonita Springs, recently began developing a 120-unit, multimillion-dollar condominium project here as part of its Parkland Golf & Country Club.

Parkland Golf & Country Club also will feature 700 single-family homes. Both the condominiums and the homes are upscale, with prices ranging from the $400,000s to approximately $5 million. The condominium units will range from 2,334 sf to 2,958 sf, with the other homes larger.

Parkland is located in northern Broward County, near Coral Springs and south of Boynton Beach. The project is located west of University Drive to the border of Palm Beach County. Currently, roads are being built and construction has begun on the condo project.

The first delivery of homes is expected in 2004, according to Kyle Reinson, regional director of public relations for WCI Communities.

The development also will have an 18-hole golf course that Greg Norman designed. The developer plans to open nine holes there by the end of the year, Reinson says.

Even though WCI has another development that is a mix of multifamily and single-family homes across the street, Reinson tells GlobeSt.com that there is a demand for more such housing in the area. That demand is fueled by the fact that the city is one of the fastest-growing cities in Florida, he says, and the area has great schools and is close to the Sawgrass Expressway.<p.The population in Boca Raton as well as Fort Lauderdale can be accessed, he adds.

Also affecting the demand is the fact that there is no competition currently in the nearby area, he says. Furthermore, this project “could very well end up being the final golf and country club built in Broward County,” says Reinson, and people want to be a part of that.

.Parkland Golf & Country Club also will feature a golf clubhouse, a fitness center, a pool, a spa, a tennis complex, children’s areas and banquet rooms.

WCI Communities has developed master-planned communities for 50-plus years. Its communities include traditional and tower homes priced from the mid-$100,000s to more than $10 million. The company also has the Prudential Florida WCI Realty division with 28 offices, mortgage and title businesses, and an amenities division. WCI owns and controls about 14,000 acres of developable land.
