Payne Park Village Comes Knocking on the Market


SARASOTA, FLORIDA, May 10, 2018 – David Weekley Homes has started its marketing efforts for Payne Park Village east of downtown, just one of several projects that this Houston-based builder is pursuing in the Sarasota area.

Site development is already well underway at this community’s 9.6-acre parcel off School Avenue, which now looms as a potent search destination for Sarasota homes for sale. David Weekley, which is touted as the largest privately owned builder in the U.S., got city approval in May 2017 to build 135 residential units in this acreage adjacent to the popular Payne Park.

Eclectic Housing Mix

Payne Park

This builder’s website pitches the builds coming soon in this community as villas, garden homes and city homes, while also promoting the neighborhood’s residences as Parkside at Payne Park Village. The approval which the city granted to the builder last year indicated that this community’s residences will consist of attached multifamily units in three- to four-story buildings plus a selection of single family homes.

David Weekley has yet to disclose square footages, specific designs, and pricing for its Payne Park Village builds. After getting city approval last year, it estimated though that the price points of the community’s housing mix would be in the $300s–$500s range.

Neighborhood Perks

David Weekley Homes envisions Payne Park Village as a neighborhood which offers luxury, low-maintenance living. It also banks on its proximity to the 29-acre Payne Park with various recreational facilities and extensive green spaces. Inside the Village, an amenity center and community pool will be provided to its future residents.

In January this year, David Weekley Homes awarded the management operations for Payne Park Village to Melrose Corporation. This Orlando-based company will to provide full-service property and lifestyle amenities management for the Village. Its responsibility areas include supervision of HOA meetings and owner‒resident relations.
