DeLand Country Club redevelopment project approved
Developers have received final approval to transform the former DeLand Country Club site into a sprawling mix of homes and shops, and expect to start work in mid-2014.
The City Commission unanimously passed separate ordinances Monday night to rezone about 35 acres of the long-vacant property on the corner of South Woodland Boulevard and Orange Camp Road into a commercial planned development district, and the remaining 69 acres of the property into a residential planned development district.
Tailwinds DeLand CC, a holding company of Lake Mary-based Tailwinds Development, is under contract to buy the property. The former golf course closed in September 2012.
The residential portion of the new development will be called The Greens at Country Club, while the commercial portion will be called Country Club Crossing. The project will feature up to 237 new homes, along with 120,000 square feet of new retail space, 20,000 square feet of office space and a 120-bed assisted living facility.
