The CVS Pharmacy is nearing completion, houses are being finished and the building for the entry gates is almost done at Sonoma Isles, a new gated community in Jupiter. Photo depicts the building at the entry gate at Sonoma Isles and is provided by Bill DiPaolo.

First called Lakewood, the 275 houses on 260 acres of former farmland are selling at a for about $600,000 – $1 million. The development is located on the northwest corner of Indiantown Road and Florida’s Turnpike.

More development could be happening soon along the town’s main east-west roadway.

Two developers want to build commercial/office parks on a total of about 140 acres on Indiantown Road straddling I-95.

Plans also call for a restaurant, office, drug store and 150,000 square feet for research and development.

Formerly known as Parcel 19, the development is being built what was one of the largest vacant tracts in incorporated Palm Beach County.

The project was originally planned to include a 20-pump gas station and have 350 homes. Facing opposition, the developers scaled back the plan.
