Minto's Grand Opening Event at Villas by the Sea Results in Success for Final
Phase with Limited Number of Oceanside and Oceanfront Residences

TAMPA, Fla. –February 3, 2015 – A successful Grand Opening event announcing the final phase at Villas by the Sea surprised award-winning homebuilder and developer Minto Communities when a line of homebuyers camped out in anticipation of the event.

"We knew that people would be interested due to the right timing and location but didn't expect a line of homebuyers waiting two days prior to the Grand Opening event," stated Steve Svopa, Vice President of Minto. The new phase at Villas by the Sea features two new buildings, Oceanfront North and Oceanside North, with brand new designs offering open floor plans ranging from 1,565 to 2,293 interior square feet, two and three bedrooms, two to three baths and optional studies. Gourmet island kitchens, luxurious master suites, sun-splashed balconies and spacious living areas offer breathtaking ocean views. New condominium residence pricing starts from the $600s to over $1 million. Currently only 10 Oceanfront homes and 22 Oceanside homes are available in this final phase at Villas by the Sea after the successful Grand Opening event.
