Minto Communities USA recently announced that four award-winning Minto master-planned communities have been named among the top 50 master-planned communities in the U.S. for 2023. The Top 50 rankings were released by two prestigious firms, John Burns Real Estate Consulting and RCLCO Real Estate Consulting.

The Minto communities included in the Top 50 are Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach, Florida; Latitude Margaritaville Hilton Head in South Carolina; Latitude Margaritaville Watersound near Panama City Beach, Florida; and Westlake in Palm Beach County.

Latitude Margaritaville communities are being developed by master developer Minto Communities and global lifestyle brand Margaritaville. Inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter and bestselling author Jimmy Buffett, the Latitude Margaritaville lifestyle is built on the four pillars of fun, food, music and escapism.

Westlake is located in Palm Beach County’s newest city by the same name. Minto, the primary homebuilder and master developer of Westlake, is approved to build 4,500 homes and more than two million square feet of non-residential space in the 3,800-acre master-planned community. The Westlake Adventure Park amenity includes a lagoon-style pool with a water slide and splash pad, poolside concessions, an adult lap pool, a BMX pump park, a playground, a lodge building with an expansive lawn area, concert pavilion and food truck court for community events, plus basketball courts, bocce ball courts and a dog park.

Minto offers townhomes, single-family homes and estate homes starting in the $400s in several gated neighborhoods within Westlake.

“Minto is honored to again have our communities recognized among the Top 50 Master-Planned Communities in the U.S.,” Minto Communities USA President Mike Belmont said. “This is the fourth consecutive year that we have received these high rankings. We continually strive to build upon Minto’s reputation for quality, innovation and value. Our growing success is in great part attributable to our team of dedicated and seasoned professionals who share Minto’s commitment to providing an outstanding customer experience while meeting and surpassing the expectations of our home buyers.”
