Now that ownership of the majority of the former golf course has been turned over to Master Management, the process of redesigning the space into a beautiful park has begun.
In April, Toll Brothers and Master Management completed the agreement that transferred the land formerly used as the golf course to the Village. Master Management Board of Directors President Eli Okun signed the papers (pictured above) making it official. The cost of the land to the Village: nothing!
Master Management took possession of four of the five parcels (the fifth is what Toll Brothers is keeping to build its project) and is now beginning the multi-year process of transforming them into a beautiful park in the heart of the Village.
Park designers are now beginning to work with the Village to design a beautiful passive park facility. A passive park could include paths for walking, biking, and other similar uses. Phase one will not include golf, tennis courts, pools, or a new recreation center. Those uses could be included during later stages of development. Toll Brothers is paying to clean up any left-over chemicals allowing Master Management to move forward with plans to design and build the park.
NEW NAME - CVE CENTRAL PARK
Now that the land has been transferred, it has also been renamed. As part of the exciting process of creating a signature amenity on the heart of Century Village East, the first step is to recognize the land is no longer a golf course. Instead it will be a beautiful park located in the center of the Village. As a result, the area has been renamed CVE Central Park. Keep an eye out for exciting new branding for CVE Central Park.
