Fort Washington-based homebuilder Toll Brothers is looking to rezone an agricultural packing plant just west of Boca Raton, Florida. The company intends to build a new home development on the property, writes Brian Bandell for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
Toll Brothers recently filed a large-scale land-use amendment with Palm Peach County for the 37.4-acre property at 9905 Clint Moore Road.
The company has the land under contract from Westside Farms and & T’s Enterprises, with plans to change the land use to high residential, which would allow Toll Brothers to build up to 299 homes. According to a traffic study, this would generate roughly 1,600 daily vehicle trips.
The area west of Boca Raton has changed quite a bit over the years. In 1968, the Thomas Packing Plant was surrounded by farms, but today most of the land around it is home communities. There’s also a shopping center across the street.
Previously the site was intended for retail development, but that application, filed in 2016, didn’t move forward.
Toll Brothers’ application to change the land usage will require Country Commission approval. The initial vote on the application could take place as soon as early May.
