The Palm Coast Planning and Land Development Regulation Board approved a 386-home subdivision plan for the Cascades development in a 7-0 vote at its Nov. 15 meeting.
The development on the west side of Seminole Woods Boulevard was annexed into Palm Coast from Flagler County on Aug. 15. Originally, the developer, Byrndog PCP, planned to include two apartment complexes and a maximum of 850 residential units across the development's 375 acres.
The City Council placed a 416-unit cap on the number of residential units the developer could build at the council's Nov. 7 meeting. Following that decision, the developer asked to change the zoning to remove any multifamily units and only allow single-family residential units and conservation land on the property.
The 386-unit subdivision will be built on 180 acres within the Cascades development, 39 of which are wetlands, according to meeting documents.
Attorney Michael Chiumento, representing the applicant, said the project will eventually be more than just the 386-home subdivision.
“There's parcels off to the left and to the right that'll be developed in the future phases,” Chiumento said.
The subdivision will have sidewalks, and each residential lot will be a minimum of 6,000 square feet. The main entrance will be on Seminole Woods Boulevard, and a secondary entrance will eventually be added to connect to the Grand Landings Phase 5 development on the property’s northern border.
The design plans include an amenity center that Cascades would share with the future Grand Landings Phase 5 development, city planner Estelle Lens said.
Because the subdivision plan includes more than 100 homes, the plan required approval from the board as well as city staff, according to the meeting documents.
