GreyHawk Landing West Is on Track for More Builds


SARASOTA, FLORIDA, January 19th 2017 – The homebuilding pace could be expected to pick up in 2017 at GreyHawk Landing West where just four newly built residences are listed amongst Bradenton homes for sale as of this January.

Early in the month, the Manatee County Commission approved the final plat for 70 lots in a subdivision of this western extension of Greyhawk Landing. The execution and recording of this final plat leaves only about 30 homes to be platted in a sub-phase of this neighborhood.

The property’s developer, Sam Rodgers, expects that selling of lots in the final plat will begin this month. The developer, who also owns and operates Sam Rodgers Homes, foresees that it would take just about two more years before GreyHawk Landing West would be completely sold out.

Auspicious Debut

GreyHawk Landing West Is on Track for More Builds

GreyHawk Landing West debuted in 2013 auspiciously in time for the annual Parade of Homes organized by Manatee‒Sarasota Building Industry Association. Over 500 prospective buyers of Manatee‒Sarasota homes for sale toured the home models in the new community during the month-long homebuilders’ showcase.

Homes by Towne, an original builder at GreyHawk Landing, is Sam Rodgers’ partner in its western extension. California-based Ryland Homes, which merged recently with Standard Pacific to form CalAtlantic, is also building in Greyhawk Landing West.

Located on the northern flank of State Road 64, this property is programmed for close to 500 homes. It sits on a 300-acre site which Rodgers bought from the Aurora, a religious charitable institution.

Homes Instead of Golf Links

The original GreyHawk Landing community was developed in 2001 in a 650-acre former dairy farm which was first considered for development as a golf course. This property was eventually platted for 789 home sites when the golf links plan fizzled out.

Nearly all of its residences have been sold prior to the onset of the housing crisis in 2007. The houses in this community are either designs of Sam Rodgers Homes or by Arthur Rutenberg for which the former had a franchise for some 20 years.

Available GreyHawk Landing West homes start in the $300s and top at the $700s. Their floor plans range between 1,850 and 3,300 square feet designed with three to four bedrooms. Bradenton homes for sale in the original GreyHawk Landing are roughly in the same square footages and price ranges.

Charming Natural Sanctuary

Pristine woodlands and serene lake views complement the award-winning designs of the residences in these adjoining, gated sister developments. Notably, about half of their entire acreage is devoted to open space and nature preserves managed as wildlife habitat.

Their residents enjoy various amenities including two community centers, lagoon-style pools, spas and waterslide. Modern fitness facilities, playgrounds and a two-mile walking/biking trail are also available. The homeowners can also indulge in fishing, tennis, basketball, baseball and soccer within the GreyHawk Landing enclave.

Located a short distance east of Interstate 75, this property is convenient to local schools like the Carlos E. Haile Middle School, and to commercial centers like the Publix Super Market at Lakewood Ranch. Further convenience would come along in the scheduled extension of White Eagle Boulevard just south of GreyHawk Landing. This boulevard will punch through SR 64, thus creating a new and nearer road corridor towards the life and leisure attractions southward to Lakewood Ranch.
