This property sits just over the southern boundary of the Lake Worth in the town of Lantana. It has been sold to a developer out of Miami. Lantana has lease which expires in 2024 for their ballfields which make up part of the property. When the property is developed, the owner will pay for relocation of the ballfields.

Without comment, Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet on Thursday approved the sale of the former A.G. Holley state tuberculosis hospital in Lantana for $15.6 million.
Lawmakers decided in 2012 to close the decades-old facility, after years of debate about whether to keep it operating. Scott and the Cabinet unanimously approved selling the property to Southeast Legacy Investments, a land development and construction company.
The approval came as the Florida Department of Environmental Protection looks to sell such properties to raise money to buy environmentally sensitive sites for land-conservation efforts.
