Oakland Park Plans to Build More Homes and Townhouses


Oak Tree Golf Course has everyone talking

The nations trend of golf courses is failing. With land so scarce, many builders have set their eyes upon golf courses as a source for redevelopment. There are approximately 45 golf courses in Broward County and at least three have closed in the past five years. Oak Tree Golf Course in Oakland Park was one those casualties which closed its doors over 10 years ago. Once an urban oasis and well-manicured golf course, the 150 acres has turned into a field of unmowed grass and overgrown foliage.

A new life for an old golf course

Homebuilder, PulteGroup has big plans to bring life back this little piece of heaven in Oakland Park. This property is located just off of Prospect Road. On the site of the former Oak Tree Golf Course plans are being finalized to move forward with a new home community. The developer has proposed building 288 single family houses together with 117 townhomes and could start building by the end of 2019.
Prices would range in the $300,000s for the townhomes and $400,000 to $600,000 for one and two story houses.
Oakland Park has seen a tremendous boom and continues to grow at an extremely rapid pace. To the east we’ve seen Eastside Townhomes emerge off of Dixie Highway. To the west construction continue with the building of Urban Village. Oakland Park has been working on the redevelopment of the downtown area and the development of the Culinary District.

Pet Friendly Condos in Fort Lauderdale

We love our pets like we love our family but finding pet friendly buildings is not always an easy task.  Our pets are our family but when living with these lovable little creatures there’s a lot that must be considered.

Not all condos in Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors are pet friendly buildings. There are many rules and regulations a pet owner will encounter. It’s not just as simple as -yes pets are allowed or -no pets are not allowed.

Because a building says it is “pet friendly” doesn’t necessarily mean they are going to greet Fido with open arms if he weighs more than the allowed weight restriction. Almost all buildings in the areas surrounding Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors have weight restrictions for pets.

As a general rule, when searching for a pet friendly building here is how many of the associations classify which pets are allowed to reside in specific buildings.

1) Only cats are allowed
2) Only one cat
3) Only dogs
4) Dogs and cats are allowed
5) 1 dog under 20 lbs
6) 2 dogs under 20 lbs
7) 1 dog and 1 cat under 20lbs
8)1 dog under 40 lbs.
9) As many as you want but not to exceed 40 lbs.
10) Dogs under 60 lbs.
11) No aggressive breeds.
12) Owners are allowed pets but tenants are not
13) No pets allowed

As you can see, the rules are endless and can cause a great deal of frustration for a potential buyer who is looking to find the perfect home for himself and his “best friend” by the beach.

It’s best to work with a realtor knows who Fort Lauderdale. A realtor who knows which luxury condo on the Galt Ocean Mile accepts small dogs, or a realtor who knows which building in Wilton Manors allows multiple dogs over 60 lbs.

If you need more information for you and your furry friend, call or text me, Paul Slutsky at 954-560-8330. Rocco, my 20lb Aussipoo and I will be happy to help you and your family find a home. Just so you know, Rocco is always looking for new playmates too.
