Cape project shutdown
The City of Cape Coral has issued a stop order halting all construction activity at the Coral Lakes subdivision. Coral Lakes, located in Northeast Cape Coral along the Del Prado extension, covers 370 acres with nearly 1000 homes.
The problems at the development have included foundation cracks and soil containing large boulders. It appears that the developer, Transeastern Homes used lake dredging material to fill throughout the project site. This type of fill can cause a house to settle improperly and cause serious damage.
Pre-construction sales activity began at Coral Lakes nearly a year ago and the project is nearly sold out. It is reassuring that the City is taking aggressive steps to insure that future homeowners will have properly constructed new homes.
