Land O’Lakes, FL- Bexley by Newland Communities has earned a 2017 Best in American Living Award™ from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The community was named Best Community in the category of Single Family Communities with 100 units or more. Bexley will be honored at the upcoming BALA Awards ceremony at the International Builders Show in January, 2018.
This is the third industry award for Bexley this year. The community was honored with two Grand Aurora Awards recognizing it as the Best Master-Planned Community and Best Recreational Facility in the Southeast by the Southeast Building Conference.
Bexley is owned in a joint venture partnership between NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH), the U.S. business unit and full subsidiary of SEKISUI HOUSE, LTD., Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and Newland Real Estate Group, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community. Newland is well known in Tampa due to its successful FishHawk Ranch, Waterset, MiraBay, and Westchase communities. Bexley is one of more than 30 communities the NASH-Newland partnership owns together in 11 states across the United States.
Since opening in November 2016, Bexley is already one of the Top 10 communities for New Home Starts in the Tampa MSA according to MetroStudy. The variety of home offerings, including low-maintenance townhomes & villas, single-family homes, and luxury homes by six of the area’s top builders, have been extremely well-received by home shoppers.
Outstanding amenities are also what set Bexley apart from other communities. The Bexley Club is the social hub at the heart of this master-planned community. The Twisted Sprocket Café is a favorite among both residents and the public, with a menu of breakfast favorites, sandwiches and salads, beer and wine. Residents also enjoy other unique amenities such as miles of Avid multi-modal trails for running, walking and biking, 11 outdoor fitness stations, custom playgrounds and a BMX bicycle pump track. Additionally, homeowners have access to two pools, fitness center, game room, dog parks (for both large and small breeds) and a soccer field. There’s even an event lawn for community gatherings, such as Concerts for a Cause, a seasonal live music concert series which benefits Feeding Tampa Bay.
Now in its 34rd year, the Best in American Living Awards recognize outstanding achievement by builders and design professionals in all sectors of the residential housing industry including single-family production, custom, multifamily, affordable, remodeling, community and interiors. BALA is built on the principle that all great homes start with great design, no matter cost or size.
Award winners will be formally announced during the annual NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando on January 10, 2018.
