3,700 More New Homes to be Built in The Villages, FL

By
Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE

It was announced today The Villages had plans approved by a magistrate for 3,700 new homes to be built on 1,483 acres.  The tract of land is north of Middleton, east of County Road 470 and stops at the Sumter Lake County line.  This area is included in the Wildwood Planning and Zoning Board coverage area.

Two things in the news release stood out to me, Wildwood has authorized the construction of 50,000 homes south of State Road 44 which is twice the size of the number home in The Villages north of 44.  They also shared The Villages eventually will reach State Road 48 at the city limits of Center Hill.  Look at the map I have included, from north to south The Villages would be 31 miles.  Estimates now put the current population at 155,000 by 2045 it is expected to top 300,000.  To think back in the 70’s the beginning of The Villages was a 400-unit mobile home park!

Dick Betts that is a lot of additional homes.  The Villages are growing big enough to become their own state.  😊

Dick Betts  how interesting, we can not get any buildings fast tracked even though the politicians are crying about lack of housing... go figure it can take 1.5 years to 3 years to get approvals and that is even longer for large projects like you mentioned.... my take is good for you.... Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. only problem here for a Realtor the developer has their own sales force that doesn't play with Realtors.

Wow, that is a lot of homes and I would guess it leads to a lot of adult libations being available as well, haha.

Lisa Friedman I know, crazy growth in such a short amount of time.  Currently research another 6,800 homes to be built in another area.
