New Builder Coming To Lakewood Ranch

Monday, January 10, 2011


LWR Communities is proud to welcome Taylor Morrison, Inc. to Lakewood Ranch. The Ranch’s newest builder plans to develop Esplanade, a 450-home neighborhood north of State Road 70 on 195 acres. Construction of Esplanade will begin in mid 2011, with sales slated to begin in the first quarter of 2012.

“We are excited to introduce our popular, single-story, maintenance-free villas and single family homes in Esplanade at Lakewood Ranch, which will cater to those buyers who desire the carefree Florida lifestyle,” said Taylor Morrison’s Division President Steve Kempton,. “We see Lakewood Ranch as the perfect location for our newest endeavor, allowing our customers to take advantage of the warm climate, proximity to the beach, abundant outdoor activities, resort style amenities, the diverse cultural activities in Sarasota, and the affordable cost of living. We believe all of this, in addition to the prestigious Lakewood Ranch address, will create a highly successful and sought after community. Esplanade will be perfect for seasonal and year round residents.”

Esplanade has been thoughtfully designed to ensure each homeowner enjoys either spectacular water views across meandering lakes or serene views of lush landscaping. The community will be gated and feature a gorgeous community amenity campus that will include a fitness facility, gathering room, craft room, card and media room, a catering kitchen, a billiard room, library, a heated resort style pool and spa, two lighted har-tru tennis courts, formal event lawn, a dog park, and miles of walking trails. Taylor Morrison will offer beautifully appointed Mediterranean- inspired homes ranging in from 1400 to 2700 square feet on 42-, 52- and 62-foot lots. “We are pleased and excited to be able to offer this type of product in the Lakewood Ranch market for the first time, and by such a well-known and highly respected builder like Taylor Morrison,” said Milt Flinn, LWR Communities president. “A maintenance free, active lifestyle community is something customers have been asking for in Lakewood Ranch for quite some time, and Esplanade will be the perfect addition to our already established residential and commercial offerings north of State Road 70.”

Taylor Morrison, Inc. is one of the top homebuilders in North America, offering a wide range of product for discerning homebuyers across the country. With more than 200 communities in Florida, Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and Texas, Taylor Morrison, Inc., offers first-time, mid-market and mid-to-upscale housing.
