Osceola County could soon approve a new housing development. Whaley Platt Development may comprise 2,818 units, ranging from townhomes to single-family residences. WESH2 notes that 1,825 units will be single-family detached homes with garages. Some homes could measure two stories. The community itself would require more than one million square feet of new construction. The homes will likely be at-market price.
Sources report that the venture could cost $1.1 billion to complete and will rest on 750 acres. It’s expected to draw at least 7,800 residents to the area. Amenities include a communal swimming pool, as well as a manmade lagoon. Here, residents can enjoy waterfront yoga, paddleboarding, and kayaking. Manmade recreational lagoons are becoming an emerging feature of many Central Florida communities.
Construction will not start before spring 2023. RJ Whidden & Associates, Inc. is the project’s consultant. Metro Development Group is the developer, and Hanson Walter & Associates, Inc. is the civil engineer.
Whaley Platt Development is right up against another housing development, Bella Tera. The latter community measure more than 600 acres and, like Whaley Platt Development, offers thousands of residential units.
At this time, Whaley Platt Development does not have an exact address. However, it’s located in Saint Cloud, Florida, in Osceola County.
