New Development: Rural Lands West
It still doesn’t have an official named, but the community being built by Collier Enterprises and Minto Communities is already making waves. The temporarily named Rural Lands West will be a 4,000 home community. It will be located in eastern Collier County, next to Golden Gate Estates at Oil Well Road. The land was previously farmland. Plans are to build the homes, as well as a 150,000 square foot town center. There will also be development for offices, manufacturing, retail, dining, healthcare, schools, and more. This will make the area a draw for new home buyers.
Eventually, plans are to have 10,000 homes in the community within the next 15-20 years. Because the land is being permitted under the the Rural Lands Stewardship program, for every acre that is developed, three acres of preservation land will be provided. This will ensure that natural habitats and wetlands will remained intact.
This community will be a huge step towards developing some of the more rural sections of Collier county. We look forward to seeing how big the demand is. We have high hopes, as this community will have lots of commercial spots, making sure home buyers won’t be too far from everything.
