Lennar likes Florida, and it made that even more evident recently. Tampabay.com reports from Land O' Lakes:

Lennar acquired more than 2,900 acres from the Bexley family’s Angeline Corp. for $23.65 million earlier this year, according to property records. The land, east of the Suncoast Parkway and south of State Road 52, is separate from the existing Bexley developments.

"We are in the early stages of imagining the possibilities for this property, but we know that we want it to be more than just another development,’’ said Mark Metheny, president of Lennar’s central Florida division, in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times. "Ever since this land was first offered for sale several years ago, its potential as an important part of the future of Pasco County has been clear.’’

Lennar already builds single-family homes in a dozen Pasco County communities including in Bexley by Newland Communities.

That project, known colloquially as Bexley South, sits on 1,733 acres that front the north side of State Road 54.
