Another apartment complex coming to County Road 462 in Wildwood

The Casablanca is the latest apartment project in Wildwood.

Special Magistrate Lindsay C.T. Holt recommended approval of a site plan for the 55-unit development at a meeting Tuesday of the Wildwood Planning and Zoning Board. Her recommendation is contingent on resolution of a utility easement. The Wildwood City Commission likely will consider the project soon.

The project includes space for a pool and pool deck “to be designed by others,” according to the site plan, which also shows 53 parking spaces in three lots. The property also will have a dry storm water management area and a nearby retention pond.

A four-foot black aluminum retaining wall bolted to the top of a fence will provide buffering.

CR 462 north of County Road 466A has been a focal point for apartment construction in Wildwood. Other projects include Turkey Run (325 units), Beaumont Apartments (336 units) and Solamar (243 units).
