We’re excited to announce that Sam Rodgers Homes will soon be breaking ground in our brand new, upscale neighborhood of GranPark within the master-planned community of Wellen Park! This September we will begin the construction of 42 homes in the $500,000 to $1 million range in the new Playmore District at the southwest corner of Tamiami Trail and West Villages Parkway. It will be a 63-acre gated community, of which 21 acres will get developed. The balance of the property is nature preserves and wildlife habitats. This new Sam Rodgers Homes location is on the same larger block of space in which the Atlanta Braves spring training complex sits and will also have common boundaries with Island Walk.
Rebranded back in April, Wellen Park was formerly known as the West Villages and began along Tamiami Trail and River Road at the former Taylor Ranch. North Port annexed parts of it in 2000 and now consists of several gated neighborhoods including a commercial district. At buildout, Wellen Park will contain some 20,000 homes and 50,000 residents, or about two thirds of North Port’s current population. It’s compared to other master-planned or contained communities such as Lakewood Ranch in northern Sarasota County and Manatee County, The Villages near Ocala, or Babcock Ranch in Charlotte County.
Wellen Park is a special place, full of good vibes and fun times that only slow down when you decide it’s time. You’ll begin each day with a smile, surrounded by everything you need to be your best and happiest self. Thriving connections. Friendly neighborhoods. A downtown with shops, restaurants, and sunsets galore. There are hundreds of ways to brighten your days, enlivened by the natural wonderland of Florida’s always amazing West Coast. Imagine your best day ever… every day with the same quality construction, customized design and personalized floor plans you’ve come to know from Sam Rodgers Homes in nearby Gran Paradiso.
