Another new community of single-family homes is headed to Naples. Located to the north of Sabal Palm Road and to the east of Collier Boulevard, plans call for the Tamarindo community to eventually make way for around 250 new homes.
This DR Horton community is being built up in three phases, which each phase of homes surrounding its own lake. The very first phase consists of around 100 homesites off Sabal Palm Road.
The next phase of the development aims to bring in nearly 80 additional homes, while the remaining homes will be constructed as part of phase three. The neighborhood will also make room for a dedicated preserve or conservation area on its eastern edge.
Plans additionally call for a rec center to be built close to the entrance off Sabal Palms Road. For now, though, crews are busy with excavation and work on underground utilities.
The new community is very close to Physicians Regional Medical Center. The desirable location is also close to several other well-known communities in this part of Naples, including nearby VeronaWalk.
The lakefront community of VeronaWalk is just to the south of the new Tamarindo development. VeronaWalk features some single-family homes, townhomes and villas situated around a Town Center.
The uniquely shaped Tamarindo property wraps around some existing homes and a plant nursery. Tamarindo is also just across Collier Boulevard from the Lely Resort Golf & Country Club and close to the master-planned community of Hacienda Lakes, as well.
A Tampa-based real estate group purchased land for the new development last September for $13 million. County commissioners also agreed to establish the Tamarindo Community Development District.
Previously it was known as the Rockedge planned unit development. At one time developers had hope to construct hundreds of townhomes on the land, including some designated as affordable housing units.
