Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach, Florida Hopes to Expand

An additional 500 homes could be added to Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach.

Interest in Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach continues to surge, prompting developers to seek new zoning that would allow for expansion plans. The popular 55+ community is currently approved for 3,400 homes, 700 of which have already been sold. If this plan moves forward, an extra 500 homes could be in Latitude Margaritaville’s future.

Latitude Margaritaville Looking to the East

A community meeting was held with Latitude Margaritaville residents on March 7 to discuss plans for expanding the community. There’s a patch of vacant, undeveloped land to the east of the community, which is currently owned by T.J. Cloar III and GDA Investments LLLP. Minto Communities is under contract to purchase that property contingent upon the current owners achieving a rezoning approval to make the land eligible for development.

Dennis Church was at the meeting to represent Margaritaville and told current homeowners that plans are merely in the conceptual stage. Right now, there’s an idea that the 500 new homes would be divided into a collection of single-family homes and a collection of attached townhomes and villas.

The idea behind the purchase and rezoning is that the land will be developed anyway, and it’s better for the entire community to have additional housing that will attract new Margaritaville residents, rather than an apartment community, commercial building, or other type of enterprise.

Traffic Control as a Concern

The capacity for more traffic was the main concern among residents at the March 7 meeting. A traffic engineer was present to discuss new infrastructure possibilities and to hear suggestions and feedback from homeowners. Many current residents suggested an alternate way in and out of the community for potential construction traffic because the current construction traffic is often difficult to navigate since trucks and machines have to travel through the neighborhood. The idea that construction traffic might move from Tymber Creek Road will be analyzed.

Residents will have additional opportunities to share their concerns or support at future public hearings as the zoning questions are considered. One requirement is that development would need a setback of at least 200 feet from the Tomoka River. The entire area isn’t above the floodplain and would require filling to raise it up.

Latitude Margaritaville as a Lifestyle Community

It’s no surprise that current homeowners are taking an active interest in how their community grows and develops. Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach has always been special in the way its neighbors work and play together. Community parties are frequent, regular social events are scheduled, and residents get together to play golf, take art classes, and attend concerts. Several neighbors have even vacationed together.

Latitude Margaritaville is a 55+ community, but its vibe tends to land on the youthful side, and its residents are very energetic. The amenities support this lifestyle. There’s a Town Center, which is still getting its finishing touches, with a fitness center, an aerobics studio, a lap pool, a spa, an arts and crafts studio, and plenty of space for indoor and outdoor dining. An outdoor pool is also available with a spacious patio and an open-air amphitheater. Residents also have access to courts for tennis, pickleball, and bocce.

The most irresistible amenity, perhaps, is the private beach and the dedicated shuttle that takes residents to their own little piece of paradise. The private beachfront club is a place for swimming, sunning, and relaxation.
