With Island Lakes to the east and Cypress Gardens to the west along Goddard Road's "Midtown" are, Timber’s Edge sits nearly in the middle, a short jog off Telegraph Road just east of the Taylor Post Office. Similar to Island Lakes, this development was started well over a decade ago before it stopped due to the financial problems of the recession. Since then, its incomplete condo units have stood vacant near Goddard, and the rest of the property’s roads and infrastructure hidden by overgrowth.
But that picture is changing very fast. The property was sold over a year ago to DN Development LLC and was approved by the City, but the ensuing legal process slowed the transaction. However, the developer, Rattan Sekhon, who formerly owned the Comfort Inn & Suite on Telegraph Road, now has his crews onsite and is making an enormous amount of progress toward a targeted opening in two months.
Timber’s Edge will be a gated community of 37, four-unit condominiums. Each condo is about 1,700 square feet. You’ll enter the development off Goddard between the existing two units. The roadway will turn east and then south, eventually into a large circle on the south portion of the site. Along the western edge of the property will be a large pond. When we walked the site, workers were doing a lot of clearing, and the developer said that there will be a lot of dredging in the pond area, where he plans three water fountains. Walking paths will wind through the development, which is bordered by a heavy tree line.
DN Development LLC has already invested heavily into the site. The existing structures needed a range of work, and the builder is committing to a large number of upgrades from plumbing fixtures to appliances, large ceiling fans, doors and windows, and cabinetry. The two-bedroom condos are ranch styles. They have very open floor plans, with vaulted ceilings and lots of windows. No price range has been announced for these condos as of yet.
