The annual awards program, held during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, honors excellence and innovation in the design, development, and marketing of housing that appeals to the mature market. Minto Communities has identified some major trends in the lifestyle goals of 55+ home owners and developed successful communities and quality homes that reflect those trends. In partnership with global brand Margaritaville Holdings, Minto Communities is developing 55+ master-planned communities inspired by the lifestyle of fun, food and music depicted in the songs of famed singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett. Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach delivers on that authentic "no worries" tropical vibe with resort-style amenities, walkable neighborhoods and golf cart-friendly streets, and colorful, airy island-inspired homes for the health conscious, active 55+ home buyer. "Minto Communities demonstrates innovative design, marketing and positioning with Latitude Margaritaville," said Steve Moore, chair of the Best of 55+ Housing Awards Subcommittee. “Out of the gate, the solid sales success is clearly a result of this end-to-end approach to lively, vibrant 55+ living.” More than 2,600 prospective home buyers attended Latitude Margaritaville’s grand opening in February 2018. Within the first nine months, 400 homes were sold, and phase one in Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach is nearly sold out. Minto Communities has two other Latitude Margaritaville communities in the works: one in Hilton Head, S.C., and one on Florida’s panhandle. Click here for a complete list of this year’s winners.
