MANATEE COUNTY — The west Florida division of national homebuilder PulteGroup has closed on 494 acres for a new community in north Manatee County.

Del Webb, a national brand of PulteGroup, plans to add a second lifestyle-driven, 55-plus residential community in the Tampa Bay area on the site, dubbed Del Webb BayView, according to a press release. 

With sales expected to begin in 2021, Del Webb BayView will have 950 lots and amenities including a large clubhouse with a social gathering area, outdoor courts and fields, and indoor facilities for sports and community activities. A full-time lifestyle director will be onsite to produce events for residents.

Del Webb BayView is one mile east of the Moccasin Wallow and Interstate 75 interchange. 

“The tremendous response in the Tampa Bay area to an active adult community that supports socially and physically active lifestyles inspired us to create Del Webb Bexley last year,” says Sean Strickler, president of the West Florida division of PulteGroup, in the statement. “We look forward to opening our second, lifestyle-driven community for pre-retirees and retirees in the southern part of the Tampa Bay region with Del Webb BayView later this year.”

PulteGroup Inc. is based in Atlanta. It has operations in more than 40 markets throughout the country. Its brand portfolio includes Centex, Pulte Homes, Del Webb, DiVosta Homes, John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods and American West.
