Babcock Ranch Featured in Detroit Free Press

Babcock Ranch was recently featured in the Detroit Free Press for our Chevy Night held in July!

Larry Printz, a reporter for the Detroit Free Press, drove the brand new Chevy Bolt from Miami, Florida to Babcock Ranch.

“I was standing in front of the ME Miami hotel in downtown Miami, just across the bay from Miami Beach, and was about to drive the new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, an all-electric compact crossover, to Babcock Ranch on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

I must admit, I had never heard of the place, and odds are, neither have you.

Nestled between Naples and Ft. Myers, it’s a sustainable 18,000-acre development set among the 73,000-acre Babcock Ranch Preserve. All of its power is solar-generated on a 440-acre parcel owned and operated on the preserve by Florida Power & Light. The town’s homes are built to Florida Green Building standards using sustainable local materials and are accented with native plants. Builders even relocate trees on the property in order to preserve them, something uncommon just about everywhere else.

It was a natural place to recharge the Bolt. And it’s 164 miles from Miami.”
