David Parker, director of sales and marketing for the Central Florida Division of Lennar, said the Independence is the first example in Lennar’s new Next Gen floor plan series designed for a new generation of multi-generational American families.
“The number of multi-generational households in the U.S. has increased by 60 percent since 1990 as adult children continue to live with their parents, sometimes with children of their own or as grandparents move in with their children,” Parker said.
“Lennar’s Next Gen homes are designed to accommodate this trend with separate, private living quarters – a home within a home that features its own private entrance, eat-in kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom, laundry room and living room,” Parker said.
The two-story Independence model home at Concord Station offers 3,357 square feet of living space with five bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and a three-car garage.
Parker said Lennar’s Next Gen homes have proved popular throughout the country.
“Lennar has sold more than 400 Next Gen homes nationwide and we’re only getting started here in the Tampa Bay region,” Parker added.
So far, the Central Florida Division of Lennar reports sales of 12 Next Gen homes in five communities in the Tampa Bay region.
Lennar’s Next Gen homes range in size from 3,300 square feet of living space to 3,600 square feet priced from the $200s to the $300s.
