Builder Announcements and Growth Continue for Apollo Beach Coastal Community
Tampa, FL (August 31, 2015) - Newland Communities has selected John Cannon Homes as the exclusive builder for its Bay Estates Preserve neighborhood at MiraBay in Apollo Beach. The Sarasota-based luxury and custom-design homebuilder is expected to open its model home mid-summer 2015.
MiraBay is owned in a joint venture partnership between NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH), the U.S. business unit and full subsidiary of SEKISUI HOUSE, LTD., Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and Newland Real Estate Group, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community.

“We are thrilled to take this next step in continuing the growth of MiraBay and to open this new neighborhood of waterfront homes,” said Pam Parisi, Regional Marketing Director at Newland Communities. “John Cannon Homes’ upscale and comfortable design is tailored perfectly to the charm of the MiraBay lifestyle.”
This announcement continues the momentum set forth by Newland Communities’ recent MiraBay builder selections. This is the third builder announcement following Ryland Homes and Neal Signature Homes. There is now new construction in five different neighborhoods within the community.
John Cannon Homes will build four-bedroom, five-bathroom homes in the “Santa Barbara” architectural style. The new model, the Mindera, is rich with Spanish and Mediterranean influences, customized finishes and adds a signature aesthetic of luxury to the MiraBay community. Home sizes will start at 4,000 square feet. .
“We are excited to be selected as the exclusive home builder in MiraBay’s Bay Estates Preserve with preserve and waterfront estate size home sites. We are committed to designing and building incomparable homes in this beautiful waterfront community along with providing the level of service our clients have come to expect,” says John Cannon, President of John Cannon Homes.
