An international developer backed by Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake has joined an effort to construct a sprawling residential community in Wellington, a South Florida equestrian town near Palm Beach.
Plans call for the construction of single-family residences, condominiums, a hotel, and a golf club on a 600-acre (243-hectare) site. A commercial hub will consist of stores, restaurants, and offices.
The extant Cypress Golf Course will undergo renovations beginning next month, and the developers anticipate that additional club facilities will be constructed over the next few years.
Housing Development in Florida’s Horse Town, Backed by Tiger Woods
Wellington, like Palm Beach, has historically been busiest during the winter months when equestrian and polo competitions are held. However, the pandemic-era migration of finance firms – and their employees – to the area is attracting families with school-aged children who want to make it their primary residence, but may be disappointed by the current offerings.
Christopher Anand, chief executive officer and managing partner at Nexus Luxury Collection, a developer and hospitality group founded by British billionaire Joe Lewis and his Tavistock Group with Woods, Timberlake, and golfer Ernie Els, stated, “The programming, the amenities, and the lifestyle that you’ve got to deliver 12 months of the year are a little lacking in this area.” We have the opportunity to redefine full-time living in South Florida for families.
