The Logeta Group unveiled plans on Thursday to invest about $10 million on the renovation of the Weston Hills Country Club, as part of the construction of a $70 million residential community.
The developer also released the Adache Group Architects' renderings for the adjacent Lodge at Weston Hills apartment complex. Weston officials had a site plan and an application for rezoning to build the 274 apartment units and renovate the club, according to the developers.
"If we can modernize the facilities and boost membership, then property values will rise and everyone benefits," Lon Tabatnick, the developer, said in a statement.
Tabatchnick is planning to make improvements to the 36-hole golf course and 50,000-square-foot clubhouse at 2600 Country Club Way. His plan also includes building a new pool with a bar and restaurant, five new tennis courts and a fitness center.
"We have seen too many examples in South Florida of once-prominent golf clubs that have been neglected and fallen into disrepair only to create eyesores for neighbors," Tabatchnick said.
In 2014, CF Weston Hills Arcis, an affiliate of the Fortune Investment Group, bought the country club for $14 million, records show. They sold it to Weston Hills Resort Group LLC, an affiliate of the Hollywood-based Lojeta Group of Florida.
