A sprawling new community with more than 2,000 residential units and 100,000 square feet of commercial space could put this recently incorporated village on the map.
The 800-acre Terra Lago would be bordered west and east by Southwest Allapatah Road and an extension of Southwest Indian Mound Drive; and north and south by Southwest Palomino Street and Southwest Warfield Boulevard next to Indianwood Drive, according to site plans.
The project proposed by Warfield Investments, a branch of Virginia-based Garcia Companies, would have:
- 2,014 single-family homes
- 174 townhomes
- 300 apartments
- a 200-bed assisted living facility
- a town center with 100,000 square feet of commercial space
- an 11-acre central area with a clubhouse and recreation center
- 168 acres of wetland and upland preservation
For the village, Terra Lago would lay the groundwork for more development, officials said.
"If this is approved, this will actually set the tone and tenor for what's next in Indiantown," Village Manager Howard Brown said. "If you look at our strategic plan, one of our primary goals is to promote economic development through residential housing."
The proposal has changed since developers first submitted plans to Martin County before the village was incorporated in 2017, he said. The village would use its outside consultants to assist in various reviews.
Terra Lago would be the single largest residential development project in Indiantown's history, he said, and would need approvals from the village Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board and the Village Council before it could move ahead.
