Florida’s capitol could soon be home to the Heel, a multi-family mixed-use development resting on 900 acres. The venture will comprise homes, businesses, office space, and industrial space.
Per the Heel Tallahassee, the developer is not asking for more than 2,107 housing units. They include townhomes, single-family houses, and apartments. Communal amenities will include walking trails, passive parks, and a dog run.
The publication reports that as of March 2023, the community was still in its design and permitting phase. That process will take anywhere from 12 to 18 months. Sources note construction could start on the billion-dollar complex in May 2024. It will require more than one million square feet of new construction.
The Tallahassee Democrat notes that the Heel would be twice the size as the neighboring Canopy at Welaunee, another multi-family community. Developers note that although there are concerns about the Heel’s ecological impact, they aim to build the community without disturbing the surrounding oak hammocks.
The Heel is only a temporary name. Once the venture gets closer to completion, the developers may select another title. Powerhouse Inc. is the owner. Moore Bass Consulting is the civil engineer.
The Heel will take shape along Mahan Drive in Tallahassee, FL, 32308, in Leon County.
