A negotiation crew chosen Siemens Growth, LLC to redevelop the golf course in West Ocala right into a sprawling mixed-use space. These plans don’t embrace a golf course.
The town of Ocala will enter into contract negotiations with an Ocala-based firm to redevelop the Pine Oaks Golf Course property.
A four-person negotiation crew chosen Siemens Growth, LLC, and its plans to redevelop the golf course in West Ocala right into a sprawling mixed-use space. The proposed plans embrace constructing between 900 and 1,100 housing models that may vary in worth from $125,000 to $225,000.
Roughly 200 of the housing models are deliberate to be flats, housing choices that, Ocala Metropolis Supervisor John Zobler mentioned, are a lot wanted.
Redevelopment plans for the property at 2201 NW 21st St., which stretches from Northwest 21st Road within the south to Northwest 35th Road within the north, don’t embrace a golf course. Different facilities are listed in plans and may be negotiated sooner or later, members of the negotiation crew talked about.
Senior Metropolis Planner David Boston mentioned together with a golf course with the mixed-use improvement appears to be “infeasible.”
“Our mindset must be what is going to profit the group probably the most,” he mentioned. The golf course, in his opinion, wouldn’t.
Members of the Governor’s West Ocala Neighborhood Revitalization Council have been adamant prior to now that they didn’t wish to lose the golf course.
The facilities proposed by Siemens in an earlier draft of its plan embrace a clubhouse and pool, health club, RV storage, playgrounds and trails.
Metropolis Planning Director Peter Lee mentioned the developer could must rethink the facilities it presents as plans for the West Ocala group heart appear to be putting it on the website of the previous Royal Oak charcoal plant at 1921 NW 17th Place.
Siemens’ proposal locations residence buildings alongside Northwest 35th Road, divided from the single-family properties by an easement. One fundamental street would span from Northwest 21st Road to Northwest 35th Road, with a number of smaller streets splitting off from it.
The event can be inbuilt six phases.
The southern half of the event will abut what as soon as was part of the Pine Oaks Golf Course however is now being developed right into a groundwater recharge park.
