Staff report

Delray Beach will soon welcome 40 new homes to the city.

A 6.6-acre piece of property located on the east side of Barwick Road has been annexed into the city limits from Palm Beach County.

The developer Stellar Communities has plans to build 40 single family homes in the community called Banyan Court.

The project has been in the works for a while and started out as an apartment complex and then turned into a 58-unit townhome project. After pushback from neighbors, the property owners pivoted plans to propose a single family home community.

The move pleased the neighbors and commissioners who voted to support the annexation and zoning changes needed for the new community.

Homeowners will be able to choose from a one-story home model or two, two-story options. The homes were designed by Delray architect Richard Jones.

Jones described the homes as a transitional, contemporary style. Elevations featured earth tones and white colors. Home buyers will be able to choose whether they want to have a pool in the back yard. Homes will have patios in the backyard.

The neighborhood will have two green space areas with pavilions and a pedestrian entry.
