APOPKA, Fla., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Signature H Property Group announced today that its flagship property New Errol and the Staghorn Club & Lodge has been awarded Top Reuse/Rehab project in the 2018 Structures Awards bestowed by the Orlando Business Journal for standout projects in the Central Florida real estate market. New Errol and the Staghorn Club & Lodge is the first project of its kind in America, revitalizing and reinventing a dying golf course community into a once-again thriving city centerpiece.

Signature H broke ground in May on the revitalization and restoration of the once-iconic Errol Estate Country Club and Golf Course in Apopka, Florida, which had hosted celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and more. Sadly time, poor management and the recession took its toll on what was once a crown jewel of Central Florida, but Signature H's $175 Million+ investment includes rebranding of the existing 2,500 home community; repositioning a newly-designed, more sustainable 18-hole golf course led by award-winning golf course architect Steve Smyers; and the building of a state-of-the-art clubhouse and banquet hall, a 40-room boutique hotel, water park, 261 new homes, and a senior campus that will include a resort-style 180-unit assisted living and memory care facility as well as a 60-bed post-acute rehabilitation center. 

Signature H's plan for the 400 acre parcel in Northwest Orlando includes executing an innovative business model that restores failing golf courses and surrounding neighborhoods into once-again thriving and sustainable communities. The model requires a combination of elements such as sufficient developable land, a motivated community, surrounding demographic and market benchmarks, and is built around the concept of aging in place.  The New Errol community includes housing opportunities for every stage of life, from large, single-family homes to luxury townhomes and carriage homes for those that may want to downsize, to a senior living campus with assisted living and post-acute care – while all through the lifecycle residents have access to the same country club, the same amenities and most importantly, the same circle of friends they've aged with throughout their lives.

"We're very proud and honored that our first development project has been awarded the Structures Award by the Orlando Business Journal," said Helmut Wyzisk III, vice president of Signature H Property Group. "To be honored alongside Disney, Amazon, and Orlando International Airport is a true privilege. We believe this is a testament to the fact that our development model will have a tremendously positive impact on the community and on existing and future residents as well. We took the best of what Errol had to offer in its glory days and are reimagining it with an exciting and modern redevelopment that has something to offer for people of all ages."

The development's other new and unique features include more than three miles of new walking trails and multiple pocket parks totaling 26 acres of new open space around the community. Inspired by ‘New Urbanism', these elements not only beautify the property but also preserve and restore open space, while providing opportunities for physical activity to improve fitness and mental health for its residents and visitors. Also included is a new 2.5-acre water park, which will showcase beautiful pools, a lazy river, waterslide, lap pool, pickleball courts, an 1,800 sq. ft. state-of-the-art fitness center and food concessions. 

When New Errol's Senior Campus opens, its residents and guests will be able to enjoy all of the amenities and features throughout the community as well, making a visit with a parent or grandparent that much more enjoyable. Signature H is using its New Errol and Staghorn model to showcase its truly unique approach to restoring and renewing failing golf course communities and is bringing it to other parts of the country for similar projects as well.
