Famed Florida homebuilder Lennar Corporation is set to tackle 2013 by continuing their excellence in single-family home building while diving into new facets of the building industry. As the market continues its path to recovery, Lennar hopes to expand further green home projects while also promoting their innovative multigenerational home, NextGen and planning multi-family developments.
Headquartered in Miami and building in 18 states across the country, Lennar continues to deliver “quality, value, and integrity” to their homeowners.
Recently, Lennar homes received top recognition at Parade of Homes Awards including first place in the category of homes ranging from $700,000 to $799,000, exceptional design of their Bouganvillea in Runaway Bay at Fiddler’s Creek in Collier County, Florida, and the Superior Home Award for their model home named Trevi at Hawthorne in Lee County, Florida.
“We are delighted to be recognized for our model home designs at two of our stellar communities in Lee and Collier Counties,” explained Matt Devereaux, Director of Sales for Lennar’s Southwest Florida Division. “We knew we would get a terrific response to the Bouganvillea at Runaway Bay in Fiddler’s Creek and the Trevi in Hawthorne, but to be honored for our efforts is fantastic. Thank you to Lee and Collier County Building Industry Associations.”
With over 800,000 homes built in more than 54 cities around the U.S., Lennar will continue to expand into the energy efficient market, especially after winning Build It Green’s 2012 GreenPoint Rated Award for their energy efficient homes.
NextGen, a “home within a home,” is an innovative design for families who are looking for private, yet connected extra space. Lennar’s NextGen designs are a first in the market, and this multigenerational option provides homebuyers with an affordable way to expand their family or share mortgages.
“It’s like getting two homes in one. Extended family living together has made a major resurgence in America, and Lennar is excited to be the first homebuilder to bring a product designed especially for multigenerational living to the Austin area,” said Lennar Austin, Texas division president Fred Wyborski.
Lennar is also making a plunge into multi-family developments with a $1 billion plan to begin building properties specifically for rental apartments. An estimated 6,500 new apartment units will be built by Lennar, and construction has already begun on 264 garden apartments in Johns Creek, Georgia.
“As demand for new sale housing continues to increase from historically low levels, rental demand has continued to grow, fueled by expanding household formations, credit and down-paymentchallenged homebuyers and steadily improving employment,” said Chief Executive Officer of Lennar Corporation Stuart Miller.
The positive light the recovering housing market has shed on America’s homebuilders is igniting a fierce drive to provide the most luxurious, energy efficient and affordable homes for potential buyers nationwide. As the creep from crisis to comfortable envelops the building industry, Lennar intends to remain one of the most respected and acknowledged builders for 2013.
