PALM COAST, FL – February 23, 2018 – Florida Waterfront Marketing is staging tomorrow a sales launch event for Marina Del Palma, a private waterfront marina community on Colbert Lane at the south end of Palm Coast Plantation. The project developer is Sunbelt Palm Coast Marina LLC. Sunbelt developed Palm Coast Plantation.

MARINA DEL PALMA CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN

Marina Del Palma conceptual site plan - Palm Coast

Marina Del Palma was conceived 15 years ago and was referred to as Harborview Marina at the time, but the Great Recession intervened. The market has returned and Flagler County/Palm Coast's real estate market is booming again.

Tomorrow’s launch covers the single-family residential (SFR) component of Marina Del Palma. Entitlements allow further development of 461 multi-family units to the east of the SFR location. Both the SFR and Multi-family components will adjoin the Lehigh Canal across from the Sea Ray Boat Plant. The commercial component will be on the east side of Colbert Lane north of the community entrance.

Marina Del Palma's initial phase will offer:

  • Private Marina for owners only
  • Concierge Boat Service – call ahead to have your boat ready to go
  • 83 Wet Boat Slips (45-65 feet) and Dry Boat Slips (30') – One dry slip for each homesite
  • Luxury Dockside Club House
  • Private Pool and Tennis Court
  • Dog Walking Area
  • Gated Entrance and Privacy Wall
  • Underground Utilities and Services

If you are interested in purchasing a Marina Del Palma homesite and are not already registered with the developer, I can represent you. Please give me a call at 386-931-7124 or email me at Toby@GoToby.com.

Lighthouse Harbor Marina

Marina Del Palma will be the first of four marina projects being developed along the west side of the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) in Flagler County. Sharing Marina Del Palma’s southern property line is Lighthouse Harbor at the former Lehigh Cement Plant site. Local developer and co-owner of Grand Living Realty, Jim Cullis, plans a marina, a resort hotel, up to 511 residential units, 80 wet slips and 200 dry slips, and up to 160,500 SF of commercial, retail, and/or office use. The marina basin has been excavated with the completion of the marina expected in 2018. The remainder of the project is in the conceptual design phase.

Early Origins

Early reasons for the Marina Complex, the Public Shopping Center, the Business Building for tenants to encourage Industry, Palm Coast public Yacht Club, etc.:

August 1976
Mr. and Mrs. George E. Chuddy

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Chuddy:
Because you have made a commitment in Palm Coast by establishing your home here, we believe you should be aware of an agreement that we recently reached with the Federal Trade Commission.
ITT Community Development Corporation ( ICDC) has signed a Consent Agreement with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) concerning the future development of Palm Coast. Signing the agreement does not constitute an admission that any law has been violated, as the agreement itself states. We feel the agreement is important in order to attain our primary goal -- the development of Palm Coast as a balanced, well-rounded community.
An important part of the Consent Agreement calls for the execution of plans, within six years, which we believe, in the long run, will be good for Palm Coast. In brief, among other things , we have agreed to the following:
1. A shopping center with at least 400,000 square feet of floor space will be provided.We are already in contact with prospective developers of individual stores, including a supermarket.
2. With appropriate governmental agreement, a traffic interchange on Interstate Highway 95 will be constructed to serve Palm Coast according to plans we submitted to the Florida Department of Transportation in August 1972. ICDC will pay for the interchange as originally designed.
3. An office and research park area will be developed with appropriate roads and utilities to serve it and landscaping to make it an attractive part of Palm Coast. Planning for this already is under way.
4. A multi-purpose office building, with at least 5,000 square feet of floor space, will be constructed for tenants in the office and research park. This structure, also, is under planning.
5. We will move the headquarters of ICDC to Palm Coast. We plan to be substantial employer contributing much to the economy of Palm Coast and Flagler County.
The agreement also provides for us to restrict our development efforts to 42,000 acres for a period of 15 years ( with possible extension for another five years). This will allow appropriate construction in areas set aside for commercial establishments, light industry, recreation, preservation and conservation and other residential uses. Moreover, during this 15- or 20-year period, sales will be limited to 48,000 registered lots of which over 36,000 already have been sold.
The aforementioned are some of the most important points contained in the Consent Agreement as it affect you and the balanced development of Palm Coast. You will also be interested in knowing of additional projects that we believe further enhance the community.. Here are some examples:
We have donated two acres of land, adjoining the future Emergency Services Building site, to the Palm Coast branch of the YMCA to be used as the location for a Community Activities Center. We will bear the cost of constructing this facility for all community residents and for sharing in operational expenses during its first three years -- a gift totaling more than $400,000.
We have provided as a gift a site of 57 acres to the Flagler County School Board for a junior-senior high school. The first class of proud seniors was graduated from Flagler-Palm Coast High School last spring.
We have designated a number of sites for recreation parks, preservation and conservation, and other public areas. One site, in Section 1-A, now is being developed and a paved bicycle path has been constructed. Another bike path, starting near the Yacht Club, is in use. We are working with the Palm Coast Civic Association so that Palm Coast residents can form a legal entity to which we can donate a one-acre site and an Emergency Services Building to house fire and security forces, an ambulance, and facilities for community activities. A preliminary blueprint for the structure has been approved by a committee from the Community.
As you know, we donated a $36,000 pumper fire truck to the Palm Coast Volunteer Fire Department , which will be stationed in the Emergency Services Building..
Palm Coast's first church building, St. Mark by the Sea Lutheran Church, was dedicated on the morning of July 4. Catholic and Baptist church organizations have purchased sites for their proposed churches. And Temple Beth Shalom is considering building a Synagogue. We at ICDC are very pleased, as we know citizens of Palm Coast are, to witness this growth and progress in the vitally important religious life of our community.
Palm Coast's first financial institution, a branch of the Security First Federal Savings and Loan Association, recently opened for business. We believe others will follow with the growth of the community.
These and many other facilities will be needed to serve Palm Coast's growing population. And it is growing. During the last nine months, construction of over 200 homes began. We now have over 1,000 people living and enjoying the good life at Palm Coast.
In closing, let me assure you that the ITT Community Development Corporation believes very strongly in the future of Palm Coast and that we are determined that it will grow and progress in a balanced and healthy manner.
Sincerely yours,
Alan Smolen
President.


In 1975, ITT made an 'Agreement' with the Federal Trade Commission.
For those wishing to peruse the FULL 'Consent Agreement' it is:
International Telephone and Telegraph, et. al., 933p.
Docket # C-2854 & also Federally ORDERED 15 Year Compliance Report with Exhibits -
Findings, Opinions, and Orders, July 1, 1976 - December 31, 1976 Volume 88

How time flies, my family and I made multiple purchases before the Palm Coast Project opened. Now, in 10 months and a few days will be the HUGE Milestone - Palm Coasts' 50th Anniversary !

...and who knew I would have Palm Coast first Historic MARKER; and at 50 there is a possibility for the properties to become part of the National Registry !

There was a lot of joy when the first MARKER arrived - tho' sadly I received a 'Code Violation' for my Historic MARKER.

Never-the less - Come see our first Levitt & I.T.T. Showcase Golf Course Neighborhood - with Official Historic Heritage MARKERS on Casper Drive and Clark Lane.

We hope our efforts give a nice 'sense of place' for newer Palm Coasters.

Thank You very much.

The Sea Ray plant is doomed. Once people start moving in to these new residences they will quickly start complaining about the smell and noise from the plant. Might as well turn the lights out now.
