The Mizner Trail Golf Course clubhouse had been abandoned for more than a decade after the golf course owner closed the course and pursued efforts to rezone the property for housing development.
Demolition started Tuesday June 13, 2017.
The building was peppered with graffiti and had sustained damage from a fire in April 2016 that left a gaping hole in a portion of the roof.
The Palm Beach County Code Enforcement had been in contact with the owners to take action on the building for quite some time in wake of residents’ and the Boca Del Mar Improvement Association’s complaints over safety hazards.
Although not in the West Delray zone, the golf course closure is similar to others in our neighborhood.
Very quickly, the contractors for Palm Beach County erected the traffic light poles and arms this week. The pictures are from May 16, 2017. The traffic light was paid for by the owners of the new Atlantic at Delray Apartments on Lake Ida Road.
In our 9 square miles between Atlantic, Piper Glen, Military and the FL Turnpike, all four golf course will be converted to housing or are under-threat of conversion to housing.
Polo Trace and the Orioles HOA’s have voted to permit housing in the golf courses. On March 8th, real estate agents will accept bids for the Westchester Country Club golf course. Developer 13th Floor Homes holds a mortgage on the golf course at Palm Greens.
The County Commission has NOT approved any of these conversions. No construction will occur for at least 18 months or longer.
On February 7, 2017, the owners of the condos in the Village of Orioles approved the golf course re-development plan by 13th Floor Homes. According to President Jeff Schultz, “each association passed it with over 95 percent of the vote. It was a landslide.”
