New Community Planned For Former Golf Course


Staff report

A new active-adult community is headed to Boca Lago Country Club.

PulteGroup has plans to build 130 homes for those 55-and-up inside the retirement community.

The national homebuilder paid $8.3 million for the land, which is located off Lyons Road just south of Glades Road.

The neighborhood will be called Boca Flores and will feature 130 two-story carriage homes with two-car garages and elevators and one-story villas. Homes at Boca Flores will range from 1,542 to 2,399 square feet. Amenities include a social membership with tennis privileges at Boca Lago Country Club, a resort pool, cabana, pickle ball court, passive park and walking trail. The community is gated with on-site security present.

Prices start in the high $300,000s.

“Boca Flores is a response to the tremendous demand for active adult homes in close proximity to beaches, world-class dining and shopping,” said Brent Baker, PulteGroup’s southeast Florida division president. “The access to the Boca Lago Country Club also adds significant value for this particular buyer segment.”

The project will be built on a portion of the Boca Lago golf course that was previously closed by the club.

Pulte is slated to launch sales in August 2017. Model homes are expected to open during the first quarter of 2018.
