First ever? This stuff has been happening for years. Miami’s own star urban planning firms Dover Kohl and DPZ have designed/built numerous agricultural-oriented communities.

Actually, the funniest part is how they’re calling this typical subdivision with large houses in car oriented cul-de-sacs “healthy living”. Healthy living would be giving people an option to walk to your organic farm rather designing yet another car oriented neighborhood. Yawn.

Marc, the community is the first agrihood in Palm Beach county and was developed around 20 miles of walking trails which is the preferred route to the community’s Organic Farm. As far as I’m aware all of Florida is car dependment which would only make it common to include car oriented Concepts. The houses aren’t small however lot coverage ratio provides the most ideal lot size plus tons of Green space.

Not all of Florida is car-dependent. Leave the Lennar office for a second and try and see more of the state man.

This company maintains a 1950s mentality and slapped an “organic farm” on it to seem like 2018. What a waste and so glad it’s all the way in Wellington. It will be inundated with climate change-induced flooding from the Everglades before people finish paying off a 30 year mortgage.
