Miami-based Lennar announced plans to develop its second residential community at the master-planned Babcock Ranch development in southwest Florida.

Lennar, the nation’s leading home builder, plans to launch sales in next year’s second quarter for Babcock National, a golf and country club community with house prices starting in the $200,000s.

The company previously introduced its first community at Babcock Ranch, called Trail’s Edge, a cluster of villas, executive homes and major homes with one- and two-story designs garages big enough for two or three cars.

Lennar’s Babcock National community will feature a swimming pool with waterfall, gym, sauna and tennis center, plus a community clubhouse and an 18-hole golf course designed by Gordon Lewis.

Babcock National will include a mix of homes including terrace condominiums, veranda condominiums, and luxury-coach, estate-style and executive houses.

The residences’ interiors will feature designer-style cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and quartz counter tops.

In January, the first residents started moving into their homes at Babcock Ranch, a solar-powered town under construction northeast of Fort Myers.

The master-planned development has a 440-acre photovoltaic solar power generation field, which Palm Beach Gardens-based developer Kitson + Partners built in partnership with Florida Power & Light. – Mike Seemuth
