Palmetto Pointe Boulevard is only a few miles long but contains numerous single-family home neighborhoods. Some of the more popular neighborhoods include Peninsula at Palmetto Pointe, Woodbury, Palmetto Glen, and Cascades. A few apartment and condominium communities are also included in the Palmetto Pointe community, such as Ivystone and Palmetto Pointe Apartments.

The Palmetto Pointe area is located behind a large, ongoing construction project on Highway 17 Bypass. However, don’t exclude this great community from your property search because of the occasional traffic congestion caused by this project. It truly is an awesome community that offers quiet neighborhoods in a fantastic location. The Highway 17 Interchange Project is expected to be complete by the summer of 2014. Once the project is finished, traffic and congestion surrounding the area will recede, and it should be easier to get around the area than it was prior to the project.
The following video should give you an overall understanding of the project and displays the projected outcome at completion:
