City of Westlake, FL (Mar. 28, 2019) — Due to the overwhelming success of Westlake's inaugural neighborhood, The Hammocks, Minto Communities has opened sales for its next neighborhood called The Meadows.
"The demand for Westlake has been exceptionally strong which has allowed us to begin offering homes in our second neighborhood ahead of schedule," said Mike Belmont, president of Minto Communities USA. "We had a long list of buyers interested in The Meadows leading up to the release of selected lots."
Located due east of The Hammocks, The Meadows will offer 388 single-family home sites, most of them with water views. Minto is selling one- and two-story homes from its Cypress Collection on 50-foot lot sizes and is getting ready to introduce 65-foot lot sizes with homes from the Indigo Collection.
The Cypress Collection has 14 unique floorplans ranging from 1,483 to 4,025 square feet under air. Homes feature between 2-5 bedrooms, 2-5 bathrooms and 2-3 car garages. Prices start at $288,990. The Indigo Collection offers 11 home designs ranging from 2,410 to 4,320 square feet under air, with 2-6 bedrooms, 2.5-4.5 bathrooms and 2-3 car garages. Prices for the Indigo Collection will range from the high $300s to the $500s. Six designer model homes from both collections are open daily in The Hammocks neighborhood.
Several Westlake homebuyers have taken advantage of the innovative workforce housing program created by Minto and the City of Westlake, where the City of Westlake provides income-eligible buyers with down payment assistance on a new or existing home within the city limits. Many other Westlake homebuyers have qualified for Minto's Welcome Heroes program that gives public servants a 3 percent discount off the base price of a new home.
As the new neighborhood opens, Minto is also announcing that construction on its amenities center, known as the Westlake Adventure Park, is progressing on schedule and a grand opening will be planned for this summer.
The Westlake Adventure Park consists of a concert pavilion, expansive recreational lawn areas with shade pavilions and grills for picnics, lawn games and community events, a bicycle pump park, adventure playground and bocce ball courts. There is also a resort-style lagoon pool with a waterslide, splash pad and concession stand. An adult pool and outdoor basketball courts will be added during phase II.
"The Adventure Park will be the heartbeat of the outdoor lifestyle we are creating at Westlake, and we can hardly wait until it opens for our residents," said Belmont.
Westlake is a 3,800-acre master planned community located in the City of Westlake in Central Palm Beach County. In addition to the 4,500 homes planned, Minto is approved for 2.2 million square feet of commercial space.
Minto recently welcomed its first completed commercial project and first healthcare facility, a 10,000-square-foot stand-alone emergency room affiliated with Wellington Regional Medical Center. The ER at Westlake is expected to open to the public on April 9th. Nearby, the Palm Beach County's Fire & Rescue Department is building a new fire station and district headquarters on land donated by Minto.
Westlake is located at 16610 Town Center Parkway North in the City of Westlake on Seminole Pratt Whitney Road between Southern Blvd. and Northlake Blvd. For more information on the community, call 888-299-3628 or visit www.WestlakeFL.com.
