ICI Homes, the Volusia-Flagler area’s largest locally based homebuilder, recently agreed to pay $21 million to acquire 1,020 acres of timberland on the south side of Granada Boulevard/State Road 40, roughly 2 1/2 miles west of Interstate 95.

Planned amenities include a lake with a fishing pier, places to go camping, a “Firefly” campfire and picnic area, a “Tail Waggers” dog park, a community garden, a “Hopscotch” children’s playground, and a network of trails that includes a gazebo/community gathering place at the trailhead.

Construction of the first homes on ICI’s planned community on State Road 40 likely won’t begin for at least another couple of years, Hosseini said, noting that the project is still early in the planning stages and must also go through the permit approval process with the city, county and Army Corps of Engineers. The development site is in the city limits for Daytona Beach.
