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.
