Green Builder Profile:
For more than 60 years, Tampa, Florida-based Minto Communities has provided production home building services for award-winning communities. The company began with brothers Gilbert, Irving, Lorry and Louis Greenberg, a vacant barn, and a shared vision to always do the right thing. Today, Minto has grown to include rental apartments, furnished suites, single-family homes, condominiums and commercial spaces with operations in Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, London, and Florida. Over the past 35 years, Minto has built more than 25,000 new homes in 44 communities throughout Florida.
The builder is a family-owned business producing homes for each lifestyle with a specialty in the active adult community. The homes also include innovative, green living environments and state-of-the-art design and quality craftsmanship.
Most recently, Minto Communities has partnered with Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Holdings to develop active adult communities in some of the country’s most popular warm-weather destinations. The first location, Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach, has broken ground and is slated to open in the fall, the company says.
Featuring world-class amenities and design, Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach will reflect Margaritaville’s authentic, “no worries,” tropical vibe, offering an immersive brand experience. Current plans call for walkable neighborhoods and a Town Center featuring a fitness center with an aerobics studio, indoor lap pool, spa, and group fitness classes; indoor and outdoor dining with signature Margaritaville food and beverage concepts, as well as others; arts and learning programs for residents and guests; and a resort pool area with beach entry. In true Margaritaville fashion, music will also play an important part in the community, with a band shell for live entertainment in the Town Center. A private beachfront club with breathtaking views and beachfront amenities will be set on the Atlantic Ocean, which residents can access via a continuous loop shuttle service.
“For over 60 years Minto has focused on providing incredible lifestyle in the communities we create,” said Bill Bullock, senior vice president of Minto Communities. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Margaritaville to put the exclamation point on fun living for active adults!”
