Records show D.R. Horton has entered into an agreement with property owner Orlando Beltway Associates to purchase and develop 56 acres of land within Apopka’s Kelly Park Interchange Mixed-Use District — a zoning overlay created by city officials to help drive future development and economic activity to the once sparsely developed region.

Orlando Beltway Associates is creating a 202-lot subdivision directly south of D.R. Horton’s Bridle Path single-family home community. The recently submitted subdivision plan shows the community will connect to Bridle Path and feature 125 single-family homes and 77 townhomes by D.R. Horton. Jim Hall of HDSi led the concept planning and entitlement of both projects as well as assisting in amending the City’s Form Based Code.  The subdivision plan shows a clubhouse with a pool. VHB is the project engineer.

The BurnBrae Companies, a real estate company headquartered in Washington, D.C. and a long time HDSi client, planned the 150-lot Bridle Path residential subdivision to the north. Last year, Forestar Real Estate Group, a land developer and holding company for D.R. Horton, paid $4.18 million for the project.

In 2018, Orlando Beltway Associates sold about 51 acres across from its subdivision to Orlando Health’s new medical campus; also a Jim Hall led project. The property at 5401 Effie Dr. sold for about $2.34 million.  Before the closing, the hospital announced it envisioned building a medical campus that would serve communities in both Apopka and Mt. Dora at the location. No construction plans have been filed yet.
