Environmental living in Florida.
Babcock Ranch, a new 18,000-acre solar powered town is to have a new development. Thanks to Kitson & Partners, Naples-based Fox Premier Builders are to be constructing this new environmentally friendly town, just 20 minutes away from Fort Myers.
In addition, Towne and Stock Development has also begun construction in Lake Timber. This is the fight community that is being put up at Babcock Ranch with additional models expected next month from Florida Lifestyle Homes of Fort Myers. Situated on 50- or 60-by-130-foot home sites, the base prices are in the $300s. Cooter Ramsey of Allison, Ramsey & Associates was the designer along with Timberbuilt and Cottage Collection floor. Each plan has a covered front porch which means that the home can be from front to back but still allow for neighbor interaction. There are also front yard spaces, fenced in backyards and rear porches.
Meanwhile a part of North Key Largo (which used to just be a pile of old trash including sinking boats and illegal structures) has now been transformed into an aquatic preserve. This 22 acre property located across from Alabama Jack’s restaurant is to be known as the John Gautier Aquatic Preserve. This was a long project which began with getting squatters out and working with the property owner who had inherited the space from her mom who knew nothing about what was going on at the property.
