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.
The nation’s first solar powered town is quickly emerging as a family-friendly destination, complete with a neighborhood school, plentiful green space, plus in the near future, retailers and, of course, enviable options in homes. The sustainable Babcock Ranch community is under construction right now but already families are seeing the strong promise that the planned development holds.
