Quickly gaining in appeal for its environmentally friendly home designs and community attributes, there’s much more to explore at Babcock Ranch than what’s currently under construction. The site of the nation’s first solar powered town is also home to dozens of hiking trails, offering up the unique opportunity to view area wildlife and experience the true natural beauty of the area.
While for many homes and many communities it’s common for residents to enjoy the privacy of backyard lanais, an old trend is certainly making a comeback in one of the area’s most innovative new communities. At Babcock Ranch, front porches are once again taking center stage, with a community where it’s certainly in vogue to enjoy the comfort of utilizing a front porch design.
A new community, that’s quickly gaining a reputation as a leader in environmentally sustainable design principles, is about to take it up another notch by adding driverless shuttles to its outstanding array of amenities. The first shuttles should hit the roads of Babcock Ranch by the end of next month, bringing yet another option to the world’s first solar-powered town.
The innovative community of Babcock Ranch includes an impressive collection of homes, businesses and amenities, but its what’s behind the scenes that’s just as notable. With a real commitment to the force of solar energy, even some new additions to the world’s only ‘solar powered town’ are being designed to capture Florida’s endless supply of sunshine.
