SARASOTA — The 10,000-acre West Villages master-planned community in south Sarasota County had 815 annual home starts in the period ending March 31, according to market researcher Metrostudy.
The statistics include Sarasota National, Grand Palm, IslandWalk at West Villages and Gran Paradiso at West Villages neighborhoods. The research also shows that West Villages outpaced other new home communities in the region, such as Lakewood Ranch, with 787 home starts, and Palmer Ranch, which had 249 home starts.
“West Villages is a place people want to live and grow their businesses,” says West Villages General Manager Martin Black in a statement. “As the fourth-fastest selling community in the United States, we believe demand will continue to grow.”
West Villages is between Venice and North Port. A partnership that includes Mattamy Homes and Vanguard Land is developing the community.
