Minto Communities Breaks Ground on Artesia’s Final Phase in Sunrise

Resort-style community offers 123 new residences, three separate collections; only a few homes remain for sale as construction gets set to begin

SUNRISE, Fla.  – Oct. 28, 2016 – Minto Communities has broken ground on the second and final phase of Artesia, a 76-acre, resort-style community ideally located at Flamingo Road and Panther Parkway in Sunrise. The award-winning builder will deliver 123 townhomes in this phase, bringing the total number of residences to 837. Construction on the first two buildings is expected to begin in early November.

“We have seen incredible demand and sales have been very strong since we released our final phase for sale two months ago,” said Steve Svopa, vice president of Minto Communities. “In addition to our quality product, buyers love our location, amenities and value price points. Most of all, what our buyers are looking for is the lifestyle we have to offer at Artesia – it’s second to none.”

Svopa was joined by Tonia Abrahamsson, senior director of sales, Jared Stern, director of community development, and other Minto team members for a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday, October 25.

Minto offers three distinct collections at Artesia that boast a contemporary blend of urban, suburban and resort lifestyles: Courtyard Homes, Terrace Homes and Sky Villas. Prices range from the mid $300,000s to the $500,000s. For a limited time, buyers can save up to $10,000 on select available homes.    

The Courtyard Homes include two to three bedrooms, two to three baths and all have a two-car garage. The residences range from 1,466 square feet under air to 1,725 square feet under air and are priced from the mid $300,000s.
