Tampa, Fla. (April 8, 2011) – Newland Communities is pleased to announce that FishHawk Ranch placed 20th on the renowned Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO) annual list of top-selling master-planned communities in the United States. As a near “fixture” on this national ranking, Newland attributes FishHawk’s success to the extensive selection of home styles, quality builders and incredible amenities; including the unique 25-mile trail system and A-rated schools.

“This recognition is a testament to our commitment to building sustainable communities that flourish,” said Rick Harcrow, senior VP of operations for Newland Communities. “We are very pleased to again enjoy this honor.”

The RCLCO top 20 list began in 1994 and is based on a survey of more than 400 master-planned communities nationwide. Thirty percent of those communities represented on the RCLCO list this year have been created by Newland Communities, the only developer on the list with top-selling communities in multiple markets.
