Kolter 55+ Community Coming to Westlake in Palm Beach County, Florida

Kolter will be bringing 800 homes to the popular Westlake master-planned community.

Kolter will be the first outside developer to join Minto in the community, with another expected to be announced soon. The Kolter neighborhood will consist of 800 age-restricted homes when finished.

This opens up new possibilities for buyers who like the idea of living in a multi-generational, master-planned community but appreciate the privacy and the amenities that an active adult neighborhood can provide.

This sale promises to introduce affordable Palm Beach real estate to the Westlake area. It is likely to attract people preparing for a Florida retirement or local residents who want to downsize into a low-maintenance home with built-in social networks.

Plans for Kolter’s Active Adult Neighborhood

Kolter plans to construct around 800 homes for 55+ buyers in this Westlake space. Once complete, it will mean that Westlake itself will have 4,500 homes as well as more than 2 million square feet for commercial development.

This includes shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and conveniences like banks and pharmacies. ER at Westlake, the first commercial healthcare facility in the Westlake neighborhood, opened its doors just a few weeks ago.

Westlake Homes & Real Estate

Westlake is quickly becoming one of the largest communities of new construction homes in South Florida. Most properties start in the high $200s and offer customizable finishes and details to the popular models that are available.

Nearly 300 single-family homes have already been sold within the master-planned community, most of them in The Hammocks, Minto’s first neighborhood. The second neighborhood is called The Meadows, and homes there have begun selling as well.

Westlake Amenities & Lifestyle 

The amenities at Westlake will be attractive to the 55+ buyers interested in an active lifestyle. Westlake Adventure Park will be open this summer and includes a resort-style pool with a waterslide, a splash pad, and a concession stand.

There will also be recreational lawn space available, as well as a concert pavilion and an adventure playground. There will be bocce ball and plenty of outdoor and indoor space for residents to gather and socialize. A separate pool for adults and shaded cabanas are also planned.

The age-restricted neighborhood created by Kolter will likely have its own set of amenities and recreational opportunities. Future residents can certainly expect a pool and their own clubhouse, as well as space for club meetings and social events.
