April 07,2017 - Lennar to create new neighborhood at Babcock
SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY/ April 4, 2017
Lennar is joining the roster of builders at Babcock Ranch, the nation’s first solar-powered town. Kitson & Partners announced an agreement for a mix of twin-villas and single-family homes at price points within reach for a broader range of homebuyers.
“The neighborhood located southeast of Founders Square, adjacent to our permanent school site and community park, will include approximately 180 homes,” said Syd Kitson, chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. “We are excited to be working with Lennar to expand access to the environmentally-friendly, active lifestyle we are creating at Babcock Ranch.”
Twin-villas at Lennar’s Babcock Ranch neighborhood will start at around $180,000, with single-family homes starting in the $220s.
Lennar has always been dedicated to providing the latest in home technology as well as environmentally efficient upgrades, and expanding the possibilities for the future of homebuilding. That is why the company is proud to be a builder in Babcock Ranch, a community that embraces these same ideals. Thanks to Lennar’s Everything’s Included approach, homebuyers never have to haggle, hope or compromise their dream home – because their dream features are already included
At Babcock Ranch, the dream features that come standard with every home include a full gigabyte of fiber-optic connectivity, and an environmentally friendly lifestyle powered the 75mw Florida Power & Light solar power plant located within the town. While Babcock residents will pay the same rates for electricity as any other FPL customer, the green-building standards for all homes will lower overall costs because their energy consumption will be significantly lower.
Lennar will be offering their popular Twin Villa Homes, with a new countrystyle design that will fit in well with the rustic motif of Babcock Ranch. These maintenance-free homes will offer 1,417 to 1,564 square feet of comfort and style with two-car garages, two to three bedrooms and a covered lanai. A spacious kitchen and open plan are perfect for entertaining, and the natural light shining through glass sliders will give these homes a breezy, Floridian feel. Each new Villa includes notable features such as granite counter tops, wood cabinets, upgraded tile flooring, and a full GE® stainless steel appliance package.
“From the beginning, we have promised to make Babcock Ranch an inclusive hometown with a full range of housing options and price points,” Mr. Kitson said. “This is just an important step in fulfilling that commitment and we look forward to adding more outstanding building partners over the next few months.”
