SANFORD, FL – Henin Springview LLCa subsidiary of Henin Group which focuses on unique luxury neighborhoods and multifamily developments, has sold its planned Sanford townhome development to a national homebuilder. The 18-acre parcel was approved last year for 150 townhomes on the site at 2300 W. First Street in Sanford.

The Orlando Division of M/I Homes closed the last week in January on the shovel-ready property located along the shores of Lake Monroe. The area is highly desirable with a hospital, historic downtown Sanford, a lakefront park and trails, employment corridors, and a mall nearby, said Jerome Henin, CEO of the Henin Group.

“We were delayed on the approvals and permitting during 2020 with the Covid-19 shutdown and the governmental agencies working from home,” Henin said. Plans for the townhomes were approved and permitted after being rezoned from industrial to residential.

Construction is getting underway soon, according to Henin. “This development is a good fit for M/I Homes as they are currently building and have sold more than half of The Towns at White Cedar just a few minutes west on White Cedar Road off of SR 46.”
