Taylor Morrison, the nation’s largest privately owned homebuilder, broke ground on Overlook at Hamlin back in October. The property is located within Hamlin, a master-planned, mixed-use community situated near the Western Beltway (SR 429) at the New Independence Parkway interchange. Overlook at Hamlin comprises 381 single-family home sites and is slated to open for sales in mid-2013.
“With more than 600 acres nestled along Lake Hancock, Hamlin will be a destination unto itself – and we are pleased to be part of it,” said Jeff Menzel, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison (North Florida Division).
Formerly known as “Town Center East,” Hamlin was created by Boyd Development, an Orlando-based real estate development firm, and Stratford Land, Dallas-based investment firm. The area includes more than three miles of Lake Hancock waterfront, which will be a central element of the community’s overall design. Taylor Morrison’s portion of the project – Overlook at Hamlin – will feature homes in a variety floor plans, ranging from 2,000 to 5,000 square feet, in four distinct and award-winning home collections (floor plans).
Inspired by authentic “old Florida” charm, the community will be driven by a strong retail-focused town center facing Lake Hancock. Plans for the property also include a marina and boardwalk, miles of multi-use trails and waterfront parks.
“Hamlin is a game changer for west Orange County,” said Scott Boyd, president of Boyd Development Corporation. “Not only will it be an economic anchor, but it will also provide a place for residents and all Central Florida families to enjoy the ‘lake life.’
