Burr’s Berry Farm, an iconic piece of South Florida history, has closed after a century of farming strawberries. Although the farm will maintain operations at another location, soon, the property will make way for Verdana Landings, a luxury housing complex.
The site, which was previously designated as agricultural farm and, was rezoned to allow for the construction of 135 homes, according to the South Florida Business Journal. The houses are designed in two different “collections.”
The Vistoso Collection, the smaller of the two, ranges from 1,827 square feet to 3,308 square feet. These houses begin at $467,990.
The Serra Collection, the larger model, runs anywhere from 2,086 square feet to 3,468 square feet. These residences range from $561,990 to $666,990. At the time of publication, homes from both the Serra and Vistoso Collection are available.
Presently, Lennar Homes manages the project, although construction has not yet started. They paid $6.56 million for the 30 acres of land, which was previously owned by the Burr family.
The South Florida Business Journal lists Verdana Landings’ physical address as being on “21000 S.W. 127th Ave. (Burr Road), on the northwest corner of Southwest 216th Street.” It is located in Miami-Dade County, FL, west of FL-997.
Burr’s Berry Farm, now known as “the Berry Farm,” is located at 13720 S.W. 216th St., Miami, FL, 33177.
