Wellen Park (formerly West Villages) has been named the No. 4 top-selling master-planned community in the U.S. for 2020 by real estate consulting firms John Burns and RCLCO. With 1,415 home sales in 2020, Wellen Park reported an 11 percent increase in sales over 2019, despite market challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. Wellen Park was also ranked No. 4 in 2019. The community features a mix of residential, commercial and recreational options in three districts: West Villages, Downtown Wellen and Playmore. It currently has approximately 8,000 residents, and at full build-out will have more than 60,000 residents and 22,000 homes. Last week, Lakewood Ranch took the No. 1 spot on the John Burns and RCLCO 2020 list.
