Developer New Urban Communities wants to build 16 townhomes at 549 NE 21 Court, across from Hagen Park and behind Gables Wilton Park.
Tim Hernandez, co-founder of New Urban Communities, which built the Bell Isle development on Wilton Drive, said he would put the application together in the next 30 days and hopes to get city approval sometime this year. If approved, he estimated it would take about 18 months to build the units. Currently, there are single-family homes on the site.
“We haven’t figured out the exact architecture yet,” said Hernandez. But, he added, it will look similar to the Coda development that New Urban Communities built in Delray Beach. The units will feature two-car garages and a small pool and courtyard will be built in the center of the development. Hernandez estimated they would sell in the $400,000 and $500,000 range.
Hernandez said his company takes “great pride” in its projects and wants to be an asset to the city.
