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 center.

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.
