Babcock Ranch is a master-planned new town that sets a whole new standard for sustainable, responsible growth consisting of approximately 18,000 acres. Located in Southwest Florida just north of Fort Myers, Babcock Ranch combines the best of America’s great hometown traditions with all the conveniences of today and tomorrow. For example, as part of your low HOA fees, Babcock Ranch provides an app on your phone where you can request an automated vehicle to come to your home, pick you up and take you to the store, or a downtown restaurant. Brilliant!
To the north and east are 73,000 acres of preserve land, so urban sprawl will never surround this town! As part of the agreement to build this one-of-a-kind community, the donation was made to the State of Florida- the largest in the State’s history.
While there’s plenty of good reasons why young families, empty nesters and retirees choose to make Babcock Ranch their home, residents do agree on something. It’s a special feeling to be part of a brand-new hometown. What a unique opportunity! Celebrate time-honored traditions and enjoy the sense of community that is lost on so many places today.
From the largest solar-plus-storage system operating in the U.S. today, the expansive public green spaces and trails to the gigabyte of fiber-optic connectivity standard to every home and and free wi-fi everywhere you may roam, it’s a place where families can benefit from the most advanced technologies, then walk out their doors to reconnect with nature and neighbors.
Babcock Ranch Floor Plans
Babcock Ranch will include 19,500 homes. Also 6 million square feet of mixed-use space on the south side of downtown for a true live, work, play community.
Now these homes will be on 18,000 acres. A full half 9,000 acres is set aside as green spaces, wetlands and water bodies. That’s unprecedented in modern communities! All the lakes including the 250 acre Lake Babcock are stocked with Bass, Brim and Gambusia, a natural fish that eats mosquitos at an incredible rate – good idea!
4 miles south of Babcock Ranch on Babcock Ranch Rd, just over the bridge on the south side of the Calossahatchee River is the Boathouse Tiki Bar & Grill. Relaxing place with water views for a meal or a drink or both! https://www.theboathouseusa.com/
