Ormond Beach, Fla. — Closing documents were signed officially giving Flagler County the 2,000 +/- acres on the west end of Hunter’s Ridge, the 5,000 acre master-planned community on Highway 40 just west of I-95 in Ormond Beach.
The park will serve not only as an amenity for residents of Hunter’s Ridge, which straddles the Volusia-Flagler county line, but also as an attraction for the entire region.
Allan Feker, president of US Capital Alliance, LLC the developer who signed the closing documents deeding the property to the county, said protecting the environment has always been a high priority. Responsible development and desire to preserve the natural beauty of Ormond Beach were key factors in the decision to make this gift to the region.
“This is going to be a terrific amenity for our residents,” said Feker. “In the coming years Flagler County will be developing miles of trails that could include hiking, horseback riding and biking with trail heads and other amenities, enabling Volusia and Flagler County residents to become truly immersed in the natural beauty of the region,” he said.
Marisol Santiago Soderstrom and John Kurtz of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty in Lake Mary, are brokers of record for the project.
Last December Flagler County Commissioners voted unanimously to issue permits to continue developing the Hunter’s Ridge DRI (Development of Regional Impact).
“This is a very exciting time for Hunter’s Ridge,” said Kurtz who also serves as Realtor for US Capital Alliance. “After a few solid years of planning, engineering and legal work to get new phases of Hunter’s Ridge on track for development, we are finally able to open the first pods north of Airport Road, satisfying the demand of a growing number of builders looking to stake their claim in this unique community,” said Kurtz.
The remaining 3,000± acres held by the developer at Hunter’s Ridge provides entitlements for approximately 1,900 residential units and 600,000 square feet of commercial space to be developed in years to come, according to Soderstrom. .
