The new sales center will include 9,378 square feet with interactive displays on the community and homes, children’s playroom, cafe’ and full interior design center.   Minto has won several regional and national awards for its innovative sales centers throughout Florida.

“Our new center is designed to offer people a warm welcome to Westlake and provide them with a personalized and interactive home buying experience,” said Mike Belmont, president of Minto Communities. “They will not only get a feel for neighborhoods and home designs, but also a sense of place and the things that make Westlake very special.”

Located in the central region of Palm Beach County, Westlake blends residential, commercial, recreational and natural elements into a vibrant new city.  Westlake will include multiple neighborhoods with homes designed and built by Minto that feature open floor plans, indoor-outdoor living spaces, the latest technologies and a host of premium included features.

The Westlake town center will be a comprehensive retail district with an eclectic blend of national and local retailers, wide sidewalks and public spaces that host a lively calendar of programming and events. The community will feature an Aquatics Center with lagoon-style pool, lazy river, tower slide and splash pad, plus an adult pool with swim lanes and shade cabanas.  Expansive recreational lawns offer spaces for games, picnics, and community-wide events.  Additional amenities include an adventure playground, dog park, sports courts and multi-purpose building.   

Minto Communities continues making improvements to the area’s infrastructure as well, spending $25 million to expand and beautify Seminole Pratt Whitney Road which bisects the City of Westlake.
