Master developer/builder begins phase two of the community’s second neighborhood, The Meadows
City of Westlake, FL (Nov. 15, 2019) – Minto Communities USA, the master developer and lead builder of Westlake, has started sales for the second and final phase of The Meadows, a single-family-home neighborhood that started construction in early 2019.
“Buyer interest in The Meadows has been exceptionally strong from the outset, so we felt the time was right to release the remaining lots for sale,” said Mike Belmont, president of Minto Communities USA. “We anticipate the momentum to continue into 2020.”
Many of the available home sites in The Meadows offer lake views, and there are a few select 150-foot-deep lots available for those who desire more space for outdoor living. Buyers can choose from two separate home collections. The Cypress Collection, built on 50-foot lots, has 14 unique floorplans ranging from 1,483 to 4,025 square feet under air. Home prices start in the low $300s. The Indigo Collection, designed for 65-foot lots, offers 2,410 to 4,320-square-foot homes under air. Prices start in the high $300s.
When completed, The Meadows will have 397 total homes with 213 planned for this final phase.
Minto has sold over 400 homes since opening Westlake just over two years ago. Its first neighborhood, The Hammocks, is nearing close out. That sales velocity has propelled the City of Westlake to become the fastest growing city in Florida according to recent U.S. Census figures.
“When you consider the quality of our construction, attention to detail in all of our homes and the incredible lifestyle we are creating, I am not surprised how fast we are growing,” said Belmont. “I believe we are offering the best value in all of Palm Beach County, and the market is responding.”
The 3,800-acre Westlake community is approved for 4,500 homes and more than 2-million square feet of commercial space.
In June 2019, Minto opened the first phase of its $15 million amenities center. The Westlake Adventure Park includes a resort-style lagoon pool with water slide, a kids’ interactive splash pad, and poolside concessions. An expansive recreational lawn features a covered concert pavilion and grassy area for events, along with shade pavilions, grills and picnic area, BMX pump park, playground and bocce ball courts. Phase 2 will include basketball courts and adult lap pool.
Commercial development in Westlake is also well under way. Most recently, the City approved a 91-acre private college preparatory school and sports academy with the first phase of construction set to begin in early 2020. Adjacent to the school, Christ Fellowship Church has submitted plans to build a new 13-acre campus as it grows its ministry to serve new populations. FPL is finishing up on a new 400-acre solar energy center, while Palm Beach County will soon open a new fire station and district headquarters just off Seminole Pratt Whitney Road. In June, Wellington Regional Medical Center opened a free-standing emergency room to service the local area, while a new 7-11 gas station and convenience store is set to come on line in the near future.
Westlake is located at 16610 Town Center Parkway North in the City of Westlake, on Seminole Pratt Whitney Road between Southern Blvd. and Northlake Blvd.
