Babcock Ranch sales momentum continues with 900 new home contracts
BABCOCK RANCH, Fla. (Oct. 20, 2020) – Kitson & Partners announced that sales have surpassed 900 new homes in Babcock Ranch, America’s first solar-powered town located just northeast of Fort Myers on Babcock Ranch Road/State Road 31.
Ranked 39th among the country’s top-selling master-planned communities on RCLCO Real Estate Advisor’s Top 50 list, Babcock Ranch recently commenced vertical construction at Crescent B Commons, the 82,640-square-foot Publix-anchored shopping center underway at a new entrance to Babcock Ranch about one mile south of the signature Babcock Ranch bridge.
“Babcock Ranch’s distinctive blend of residential offerings, from golf-course view terrace homes to custom single-family estates on Lake Babcock, attracts homebuyers from around the country,” said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. “But it’s really the Babcock Ranch spirit, with a vibrant sense of place and welcoming community where neighbors feel like family, that sets our hometown apart from anywhere else in the world.”
Babcock Ranch began marketing new homes in 2017, with the first residents moving into the town in January 2018. Today, Babcock Ranch offers homes from nine homebuilders in seven neighborhoods. Created by Kitson & Partners with respect for the natural environment and the philosophy that smart growth and sustainability work hand in hand, half of the town’s 18,000-acre footprint is set aside as greenways, parks and expansive lakes, providing recreation and scenic backdrops for Babcock Ranch’s homes and the Founder’s Square downtown district.
Babcock Ranch homebuilders offer more than 50 home designs for nearly every lifestyle, from condominiums to villas to single-family estates ranging from 1,120 to more than 4,000 square feet. Homes appeal to young millennials, families, empty nesters and retirees alike, with prices ranging from the $200s to over $1.5 million. Built to Florida Green Building Coalition standards, homes emphasize energy and water conservation and offer a full gigabit of fiber-optic connectivity.
