15,000 new homes in North Port?
Developer TLH Boss of West Palm Beach has filed a development of regional impact pre-application with the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council for a 15,000 home development in Northern Charlotte County.
The project, called the Isles of Athena, is planned for a section of North Port near the DeSoto County line that was formerly the 5,800 acre Kelce Ranch. Isles of Athena would include 15,000 homes, a town center and a new exit off I-75 between Kings Highway and Toledo Blade Blvd.
It is too early to gauge what impact this development would have on land values in North Port and other Charlotte County plated communities. Certainly additional commercial infrastructure that surrounds projects such as this would be welcomed in this area that has long struggled to attract commercial interests.
