Bahia Villas gained rezoning approval from Marion County Commissioners this week for the development of a 17-acre, 192-unit quadriplex in the Silver Springs Shores community in Ocala.
The request was approved by the Marion County Board of County Commissioners as part of the consent agenda during its regular meeting on Tuesday.
The subject property consists of 17.22 acres and is located in the Silver Springs Shores community on the southwest corner of Midway Road and Bahia Road.
The land will be rezoned as R-3 (Multiple Family Dwelling). The land is currently zoned as B-4 (Regional Business). A small-scale amendment was also approved with the rezoning request which will change the land use from “Commercial” to “Urban Density Residential.”
The development will consist of 49 individual lots. There will be 48 lots that feature a single residential quadriplex building with four units (for a total of 192 units). The remaining lot will contain areas for parking along with a community park.
The two access points for the development will be on Bahia Avenue and Midway Road.
The developer plans on marketing each quadriplex building to a single buyer who will then own all of the buildings. A property owner’s association will maintain each of the properties.
The development will be buffered from existing regional business parcels to the west and residential parcels to the east.
The Marion County Board of County Commissioners meet on the first and third Tuesday of each month at the McPherson Governmental Campus Auditorium (601 SE 25th Avenue).
