New Amenity Complex

The amenity complex will include a 20,000-square-foot clubhouse which includes a recreational space with a fitness center.

According to Sean Strickler, president of the West Florida division of PulteGroup, which includes the Del Webb brand, the entire design concept for amenities at Del Webb BayView comes from feedback received from current residents in other Del Webb communities. “Homeowners will enjoy one of the top amenity complexes in the Tampa Bay area,” he said in a statement.

The amenity complex will include a 20,000-square-foot clubhouse which includes a recreational space with a fitness center, a demonstration and cooking kitchen, an aerobics studio, an arts and crafts studio, and a juice bar that also serves coffee. There are also separate rooms for meetings, events, and other activities

Next door to the recreation center, a 3,500-square-foot indoor and outdoor bar and grill is planned. Residents and their guests can enjoy a meal or a drink. There will also be a resort-style outdoor pool with lap lanes and a resistance pool as well. Water aerobics classes will be available, and homeowners can also choose to spend sunny days stretched out on the patio. Other outdoor amenities with health and fitness in mind include tennis courts, pickleball courts, bocce courts, and an area for kayaking. Residents can also expect a community garden, a dog park, and plenty of paths for walking, jogging, and bike riding.

An outdoor private amphitheater is also planned, with an event lawn for concerts and performances as well as regularly occurring farmers markets. Del Webb BayView will employ a full-time Lifestyle Director and Community Association Director to help with organizing events and inspiring the creation of special interest clubs. Residents can expect seminars and classes to help keep them socially engaged.
