Kolter to Build up to 491 Homes at Avenir Site in Palm Beach Gardens

Homebuilder paid $74M for 149 acres in second Avenir purchase


Kolter Group has purchased another piece of the Avenir master development in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., for $73.6 million, property records show.

Called Lot 16, the 149-acre site sits along Northlake Boulevard at the northwest end of the  4,763-acre Avenir development, which is zoned to allow nearly 2,700 single-family homes and 1,000 age-restricted homes, plus 2 million square feet of offices as well as a retail center.

Documents filed in Palm Beach County suggest Kolter will build up to 491 residential units, likely single-family homes for those 55 and older, in addition to a tract center and club. 

The seller, master developer Landstar Development Group, retains the right to approve any changes to the development plans. For each home sold, the Coral Gables-based developer will also receive a $16,620 cut. 

Representatives for Kolter and Landstar did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

It’s the second purchase for Kolter at the Avenir development. In April, the Delray Beach-based developer purchased Lot 20, a 140-acre site, for $18.1 million, according to property records.

Avenir is one of many developers active in the area. In 2021, Centaur Group purchased 392 acres for $60 million with plans to build 218 luxury single-family homes and a golf course designed by sport legend Jack Nicklaus. The course opened in November. 

Other homebuilders that bought into the project include Toll Brothers, GL Homes and Kenco Communities
