More than 1,000 people attended a showcase event over the weekend for Babcock Ranch, the master-planned community and solar-powered town that straddles the border of Charlotte and Lee counties.
Dubbed “Make the Move,” Babcock Ranch officials say the launch of two new neighborhoods, from Lennar and Pulte, with prices starting in the $190s, has spurred “rapid growth” in the community. The event was held Nov. 4. “The day was a big success with builders writing multiple contracts and many more scheduled to be signed over the next few weeks,” the release states.
Invited guests also met with builders, compared floor plans and took trolley tours of the new neighborhood sites. Tours of model homes from Homes by Towne, Stock, Fox Premier Homes, Florida Lifestyle and Castle Harbor, were also available in the Lake Timber neighborhood, the release adds. Palm Beach Gardens-based Kitson & Partners is the developer behind Babcock Ranch.
