Developer Receives Zoning Approval for 71 Homesites on 28 Acres at Wekiva Reserve

APOPKA, FL – The Henin Group has received final zoning approval from Orange County to create Wekiva Reserve, a 71-site, single-family home community on 28-acres of land at 1401 and 1433 Votaw Rd. in Apopka

The plan – according to Jerome Henin, CEO of the Winter Park-based firm is – for 50 and 65-foot-wide homesites that will contain houses from 2,500 to 4,000 square feet of living space. Prices are expected to start in the mid $400,000s.

“We’re excited about the creation of this community and want to keep it consistent with the local, low-density neighborhoods already developed,” he said.

This is how Henin said he would like to see the community developed if his company is the builder. But, things could change slightly as he also is entertaining offers from numerous national homebuilders.

“If we receive an acceptable offer with a similar vision, the final size and price range could change a little,” he said, adding that the company has prepared a conceptual site plan for presentation to Orange County early next year.
