Avalon Park Daytona would add 10,000 homes, businesses, schools

DAYTONA BEACH — Motorists whizzing along State Road 40/West Granada Boulevard a mile west of Interstate 95, can see new signs proclaiming: “Coming Soon Avalon Park Daytona Beach.”

If all goes as planned, the massive 3,015-acre master-planned community could welcome its first residents by 2022. The developer has even contacted the Volusia County School District about future school needs as the project develops. 

But the project also has attracted resistance from some who are worried about the traffic and environmental impact it will create, and the vacant land that could soon turn into homes, roads and businesses.

Avalon Park would be the largest such development ever built in Volusia County, offering as many as 10,000 homes and apartments and 1 million square feet of commercial space.
