Whitaker is a 36-acre parcel secured this summer on Slim Haywood Avenue off of State Road 19 and County Road 561. Gary Beverly of Civil Design Solutions in Maitland has been hired to design the new single-family subdivision of approximately 145 lots. Henin said this latest development is adjacent to a Publix-anchored shopping center.
“We’re going to find out the variety of oranges that actually grow on the site and we may use it in the name of this second community,” he said, hoping that the permitting is completed and the plat finalized for a closing before the end of next year.
“Residents of both communities will enjoy tranquility and at the same time benefit from easy access to the 429 Expressway, US 441, and SR 46, providing a mere 30-40 minute commute to Orlando.”
