social sustainability

Babcock Ranch stands apart with a comprehensive focus on both environmental and social sustainability. “Inclusive” rather than the “exclusive/gated” model that dominates Florida – this multigenerational, solar-powered town boasts parks, lakes and 50 miles of trails open to all, not just residents. Half the town footprint is green, promoting an active, healthier way of life. Homes at all price points clustered in walkable neighborhoods foster social connections.  And it is a place where education truly comes first. Our public charter school located at the center of town opened months before the first residents moved in.
