Lakewood Ranch, FL

Lakewood Ranch (LWR) is a master-planned community located in Manatee and Sarasota Counties east of Interstate 75, and accessible from interchanges at University Parkway, State Road 70, State Road 64, and Fruitville Road. Lakewood Ranch is the 2nd fastest selling community in the United States, with approximately 33,000 residents in more than 20 villages.

With more than four-and-a half million square feet of current commercial development and entitlements for up to 14 million square feet, there is plenty of room to grow. Some 2,600 acres have been set aside for future development and mixed-use, campus style business parks, including CORE, a site for national life sciences and health care companies.

Lakewood Ranch has two information center locations (both minutes from I-75), and a team of professional community specialists who are eager to customize a guided tour of the Ranch or provide answers to any questions prospective buyers may have.

The approximately 31,000-acre community is part of Schroeder-Manatee Ranch (SMR), a working ranch. Since the early 1900s, the Uihlein family, one of the original owners of the Schlitz Brewery, has owned the property. Ranch activities have included cattle ranching and citrus, tree and turf farming, and aggregate mining. SMR transitioned into community development in February of 1994.

Lakewood Ranch Community Activities is  dedicated to enriching Lakewood Ranch by fostering a sense of community and friendships through events for the enjoyment and camaraderie of the residents. Some activities are so popular that they have become annual events such as the Eggstravaganaza, Boo Fest, and Holidays Around The Ranch. Additionally, there are more than 60 active clubs within Lakewood Ranch that reflect the diversity of interests and causes through which to socialize and gather.
