TRINITY — The interest of builders in Pasco County is perking up along with the economy as two projects are underway at the Champions Club in the Trinity area and Serengeti in the Hudson area.
Emerald Homes plans to bring its portfolio of executive and estate residences to the Champions Club, according to Dan Aldridge, vice president of Adam Smith Enterprises, the community’s developer.
Emerald Homes intends to build floor plans ranging from 3,820 to 4,432 square feet of living space, priced from $800,000. It also plans to build a model home, which should open in the fall.
Texas-based Emerald Homes builds throughout the country.
Champions’ Club overlooks the 18-hole championship golf course at Fox Hollow Golf Club, which opened in 1994. More than half of this community’s 368 homesites border the golf course, while many others overlook nearly 45 acres of lakes, or heavily wooded conservation areas.
The community features a Mediterranean-style clubhouse.
The welcome center, at the Fox Hollow Golf Club, is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. For appointments at other times go online to http://championsclubfla.com or call (727) 375-2800.
