In yet another sign that Southwest Florida’s housing downturn has changed direction, national home builder Toll Brothers has broken ground on the first new community built in Bonita Springs in the past five years.

Bonita Lakes is located just off of Imperial Parkway between Bonita Beach Rd. and Coconut Rd.. The 120 acre development will feature single family homes, villas and estate homes ranging in size from 2,058 to 4,354 square feet. Home prices will range from the low $300,000s to over $500,000 and amenities will include a clubhouse, swimming pool and tennis courts. When finished, the community will have 268 residences.

Toll Brothers plans are to have people living in the new community by the end of 2012. Bonita Lakes will be the home builders fourth community in Southwest Florida, joining Belle Lago and The Reserve in Estero and Firano in Naples.





The Aragon, a three bed, three and one half bath home, will be among the designer decorated models at Bonita Lakes.
