There will be a mix of single-family and attached villa homes set among 61 acres of lakes and 110 acres of nature preserves. Pricing has not yet been announced.

DiVosta also has broken ground on its second amenity center at Island Walk at the West Villages. The amenity center will consist of an 8,000-square-foot clubhouse with fitness center and movement studio, card rooms, outdoor bar and resort-style pool and spa. A community garden, basketball half-court, dog park, outdoor pavilion for poolside barbeque, and a playground will round out the new amenity campus; and eight additional pickleball courts also are being built.
