BABCOCK RANCH, Fla. (March 13, 2020) – Kitson & Partners, developers of Babcock Ranch, America’s first solar-powered town located just northeast of Fort Myers on Babcock Ranch Road/State Road 31, has reported 604 new home contracts through the beginning of March.
Babcock Ranch began marketing new homes in 2017, with the first residents moving into the town in January 2018. Today, Babcock Ranch offers homes from nine homebuilders in seven neighborhoods.
“Whether homebuyers discover Babcock Ranch through a friend who lives here or while attending one of our special events, they are immediately attracted by our welcoming sense of community,” said Syd Kitson, chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. “With the official announcement of Publix coming to Babcock Ranch and the opening of the Babcock National golf course, we continue to fulfill our vision of a vibrant new hometown.”
Babcock Ranch was created by Kitson & Partners with respect for the natural environment and the philosophy that smart growth and sustainability work hand in hand. Half of the town’s 18,000-acre footprint is set aside as greenways, parks and expansive lakes, providing recreation and scenic backdrops for Babcock Ranch’s homes and the Founder’s Square downtown district.
Babcock Ranch homebuilders offer more than 50 home designs for nearly every lifestyle, from condominiums to villas to single-family estates ranging from 1,107 to more than 4,000 square feet. Homes appeal to young millennials, families, empty nesters and retirees alike, with prices ranging from the low $200s to over $1.5 million. Built to Florida Green Building Coalition standards, homes emphasize energy and water conservation and offer a full gigabyte of fiber-optic connectivity.
Babcock National brings golf to Babcock Ranch with a newly opened 18-hole Gordon Lewis-designed course as the centerpiece of Lennar’s new lifestyle community.
Within Babcock Ranch’s welcoming neighborhoods, more than two dozen model and quick-delivery homes are now open or under construction by Arthur Rutenberg Homes, Divco Custom Homes, Florida Lifestyle Homes, Fox Premier Builders, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Pulte Homes, Stock Classic Homes and WCI. Many models are open for viewing daily.
