Clermont Council Advances Mixed-Use Lumberyard District

Clermont’s City Council approved the rezoning Tuesday night with a density bonus for the proposed Lumberyard District mixed-use project in the city’s central business district on Lake Minneola.

“I support the project,” Mayor Tim Murray said. “I think it’s great, and it’s been a long-time coming.”

The developer, Wolfe and Wallace Properties, is the longtime owner of the 12.3-acre site adjacent to Victory Pointe Park and the South Lake Trail, along Carrol Street. The site is home to an active lumber yard that is still in operation today under the name American Builders Supply and provides the inspiration for the district’s theme. The developer even received a waiver to use wood construction materials instead of masonry to honor the site’s history.

The Lumberyard District redevelopment project would be constructed in two distinct phases: a multifamily phase first that includes 262 apartments across the first four multifamily buildings; and a commercial phase, which will include a mix of commercial, mixed-use and live-work buildings with combined 130 dwelling units plus a two-story parking garage. The final component is the Sawmill Entertainment Center (pictured above), a 2-story, open-air destination. “It has games. It has food, music, beverages, but it’s designed for families to come and bring it’s not designed to straight bar,” said Wolfe and Wallace attorney JimmyCrawford.
