PARRISH -- Wildcat Preserve, A 94-acre proposed development that Medallion Home bought in a 2012 foreclosure auction, is back before Manatee County planners for final site approval.

Medallion owner and CEO Carlos Beruff is seeking approval to build 242 single-family homes and 51,346 square feet of retail/office space at 12180 Golf Course Road.

The site is on the northeast corner of Fort Hamer Road and Golf Course Road, about one mile north of Williams Elementary School, said principal county planner Miles Gentry.

Wildcat Preserve would be Medallion's fifth devel

opment in the Parrish area. The others are Gamble Creek Estates and Preserve, Twin Rivers, River Plantation and Foxbrook Estates.

Medallion Home was able to acquire the property for $800,100, the Herald previously reported.

Other Medallion communities elsewhere in Manatee and Sarasota counties include The Enclave at Country Meadows, Riva Trace and more.

A flurry of development activity is underway north of the Manatee River, including the start of construction or requests for approval of nearly 7,000 homes along Moccasin Wallow Road, the Herald previously reported.

Among the Moccasin Wallow projects are Homes by Towne's Eagle Pointe, Pat Neal's The Villages of Amazon South, John and Michael Neal's Summer Woods and Taylor Morrison's Esplanade at Artisan Lakes.

Beruff did not return a call for comment.
