Minto Communities Sells Out Villas By The Sea

Builder sells out final phase of Lauderdale-By-the-Sea project in two years

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL — Minto Communities has completed another successful residential project in South Florida in just two years. The homebuilder closed out sales at the 117-residence Villas By The Sea, located in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

Villas By The Sea is an island-inspired, low-rise community with four 4-story buildings. The first two buildings—Oceanside South and Oceanfront South—were released in 2006 and were both completed by 2009 with a total of 66 residences.

Sales for the final two buildings—Oceanfront North and Oceanside North-- launched in December 2014. Construction is now complete on both, which have a combined 51 residences. The final residence that was sold to close out the entire project was the Coastal model, located in Oceanside North. Located just a few steps from the Atlantic Ocean, it features 1,565 square feet under air with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open study, high-impact glass, granite in the kitchen and baths and a covered balcony ideal for enjoying sunsets.

Currently, Minto is in the process of selling out Artesia, a community development in Sunrise. The 75-acre resort-style community is located next door to the BB&T Center and Sawgrass Mills Mall with easy access to the Sawgrass Expressway. The builder is currently selling the final phase consisting of 123 townhomes ranging in price from the mid $300,000s to the $500,000s. The first phase, with 714 homes, sold out during the last real estate cycle. Artesia boasts several luxury amenities including the world-class 17,000-square-foot Villa Artesia clubhouse, state-of-the-art fitness center, billiards room, tennis courts, multiple pools, and children’s interactive water and play area.

Minto is also developing LakePark at Tradition, an award-winning, active adult community in St. Lucie County. It features resort-style amenities and offers single-family and villa homes ranging in price from $190,000s to the mid $200,000s.
