DAYTONA BEACH — Another big piece is being added to the white hot development puzzle already taking shape just west of Interstate 95.
On Saturday, ICI Homes will hold a grand opening event to celebrate the completion of five model homes at its planned 1,200-home Mosaic “full life” community off LPGA Boulevard, just west of the Florida Tennis Center.
It’s the latest in a surge of development projects in the area that includes:
• The planned 6,600-home Latitude Margaritaville 55-ond-older community going up on the north side of LPGA Boulevard, west of the Halifax Humane Society;
• A 2,500-home community ICI plans to build on the south side of State Road 40 on Latitude Margaritaville’s northwest border;
• More new homes planned at the LPGA International development, where 400 lots are still available;
• A 200-acre parcel just south of Father Lopez Catholic High School recently put under contract to be sold by Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. to a Florida developer that could include about 250 homes.
Also in the works is a 200,000-square-foot grocery store-anchored shopping center at the entrance to Latitude Margaritaville at LPGA Boulevard and the new partially completed Tymber Creek Road extension. While developer Sutton Properties has yet to name the grocery store operator for its retail complex, The Landing, residents in the area have been buzzing for months that it will be a Publix.
