 Minto Communities was created by four brothers. They started the company, and for over 60 years have provided quality service to homeowners and residents with their well-built communities and home designs.

Over the years, Minto has expanded and now has operations in major cities throughout Canada as well as in Florida. Minto has built more than 80,000 homes and continues to develop award-winning residential communities and quality home designs. The builder has also developed more sustainable communities that promote green and healthier lifestyles.


Minto’s presence in the U.S. is mainly found in the state of Florida and in areas like Orlando, Tampa, Sarasota, Naples, Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Port St. Lucie, and Daytona Beach. Some of Minto’s award-winning communities feature maintenance-free homes, resort-style amenities, vibrant social atmospheres, and beautiful natural settings. Minto has also developed some of Florida’s most popular active adult communities that appeal to retirees and Baby Boomers looking for an exciting and active lifestyle.

New Communities

Minto’s newest 55+ community, coming in the fall of 2017, will be located in Daytona Beach, FL, and will be inspired by the music and lifestyle of legendary musician Jimmy Buffet. Latitude Margaritaville will be a premier active adult community offering innovative home designs, world-class amenities, and an exciting social environment like no other. Minto plans to build 6,900 homes, which is expected to be the largest master-planned community being built in the Daytona Beach area.

While homeowners are eagerly awaiting the opening of Latitude Margaritaville, Minto also has other new construction 55+ communities like LakePark at Tradition in Port St. Lucie, FL. This active adult community is situated within the master-planned community of Tradition and features attached or single-family home designs offered by Minto. This active adult community also provides residents with resort-style amenities combined with a small-town charm and a vibrant social lifestyle.

Minto has also developed several other communities that cater to retirees. These communities, such as Harbour Isle in Bradenton, FL and The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples, FL attract the 55+ crowd because of the community’s low-maintenance and energy-efficient homes, resort-style amenities, and prime location.


Not only does Minto provide quality home designs and a rich lineup of amenities in their communities, but they also place a premium on promoting a truly active and healthy lifestyle that attracts Baby Boomers. Minto’s communities often host regularly planned activities and events that keep residents busy, social, relaxed, and happy. A sense of community also brings neighbors closer together, resulting in lifelong friendships.

With so many great qualities and accolades under their belt, it’s no surprise to see Minto developing more communities and new buyers seeking opportunities to live in a Minto home.
