Many home builders are cutting back on amenities and postponing new developments until the economy improves, but GL Homes is taking the opposite approach.
The Sunrise-based builder is opening a new project, and it's going upscale in the process.
The Bridges, on Lyons Road between Clint Moore Road and Atlantic
Avenue near Delray Beach, will feature 622 homes ranging in price from
$500,000 to $1.5 million. The sales center opens Feb. 11.
Some of the amenites: impact glass, a poolside bistro, indoor sports
complex, tennis complex with pro shop and a children's and teen activity
GL, which bought the 300-acre tract in 1999, has survived the housing
bust about as well as anybody. It found a niche with over-55
communities west of Boynton Beach. But The Bridges is not
age-restricted, and GL is looking to attract young families, empty
nesters, move-up and international buyers.
“We feel there is tremendous pent-up demand for a luxury new home
community in the Boca/Delray area,” Division President Marcie DePlaza
said in an email.
