Much of the development is in the West Villages of North Port. It could add 20,000 or more homes to south county in the next 40 years. Staff photo / Harold Bubil; 2-8-2015.
Mattamy Homes’ first community in North Port will be known as Renaissance at West Villages.
Mattamy, a large, Canada-based home building company, is part of a partnership that is developing the 10,000-acre master-planned community on what was known as Taylor Ranch, off U.S. 41 and west of River Road in the West Villages of North Port.
Renaissance, which will be gated, will have about 650 paired villas and houses. It also will have a clubhouse and pool for residents, lakes, open space and a 33-acre park off River Road. The park will have a covered pavilion, “doggie chill zone,” walking trails, bird-watching area and a dog park with separate sections for large and small dogs.
West Villages general manager Martin Black said the neighborhood will be close to State College of Florida and the new Town Center at West Villages.
“We look forward to introducing this area to our new designs and floor plans and the superb customer service that has made Mattamy Homes so successful,” explained Mattamy’s Tampa-Sarasota Division President Ed Suchora. “We anticipate the first model will open in early 2017.”
