CITY OF WESTLAKE, FL (September 7, 2021) — Minto Communities USA, the master developer and primary homebuilder of Westlake, is introducing its newest neighborhood: The Orchards of Westlake. Sales are set to begin later this month.
The Orchards will offer 358 single-family home sites in phase 1, many of which have water views. Buyers can choose from two separate home collections. The Cypress Collection, built on 50-foot lots, has 15 unique floorplans ranging from 1,921 to 4,025 square feet under air. Home prices start in the high $300s. The Indigo Collection, designed for 65-foot lots, offers 11 floorplans that range from 2,410 to 4,320 square feet under air, with prices starting in the low $400s.
The neighborhood is located off Town Center Parkway North, just east of The Meadows neighborhood.
“We are thrilled to continue building upon the success of our first three neighborhoods, which are completely sold out,” said Mike Belmont, president of Minto Communities USA. “The demand for the homes we are offering at Westlake, with larger living spaces and backyards, continues to grow.”
With 3,800 acres, the Westlake community encompasses most of the city of Westlake that was incorporated in 2016 to become the 39th municipality in Palm Beach County. The first three Minto neighborhoods, The Hammocks, The Meadows and The Groves, are sold out. In July, Minto started sales at its fourth Westlake neighborhood, The Estates, an enclave of 76 luxury homes on 75-foot homesites priced between the $500s and $800s.
Later this fall, Minto will start construction on the second phase of the Westlake Adventure Park, which includes a multi-purpose community building, basketball courts and an adult lap pool. The $15 million first phase, completed in 2019, features a resort-style lagoon pool with a water slide, a kids’ interactive splash pad and poolside concessions. An expansive recreational lawn features a covered concert pavilion and grassy area for events, along with shade pavilions, grills, a picnic area, a BMX pump park, a playground, bocce ball courts and a dog park.
Commercial development in Westlake is also in full stride. Westlake will soon welcome its first new retail business with the opening of a 4,500-square-foot prototype 7-11 convenient store and gas station. Nearby, Publix purchased 20 acres off Seminole Pratt Whitney to develop a shopping plaza anchored by a 50,000-square-foot grocery store. A 40-acre master-planned business park known as Westlake Landings is attracting a mix of developers planning more retail shops, warehouse space, storage and entertainment-focused projects.
The taxpayer’s office in Palm Beach County is finishing up construction on a new regional service center, as Christ Fellowship Church prepares to break ground on an 800-seat worship center. This follows the opening of a free-standing emergency room and a Palm Beach County Fire Station over the last two years.
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.
