Taylor Morrison has broken ground on The Heights, its latest community in Bradenton, Florida. The home builder will bring two new neighborhoods, Esplanade at The Heights and Grandview at The Heights, to the 200-acre development.

The Heights will offer views of 255-acre Ward Lake and will be surrounded by picturesque scenery and lush landscaping in a convenient Bradenton location near Manatee County schools, shopping, entertainment and I-75. Planned elevated walking trails, outdoor recreation lawns and sitting areas will be located throughout the community in addition to individual neighborhood amenities.

"With our new community, The Heights, we're bringing some of Taylor Morrison's most popular home options and community amenities to the area," said Cammie Longenecker, division president of Taylor Morrison Southwest Florida.

Esplanade at The Heights will be a Taylor Morison signature resort-lifestyle neighborhood offering a luxurious array of planned amenities exclusively to its residents including a resort-style pool and spa, cabana area, fitness center, tennis, pickleball and bocce ball courts, and a dog park. Esplanade homeowners will also have access to social events and parties planned by the on-site Lifestyle Manager. Homes in this neighborhood are planned to feature California Tuscan inspired architecture along with spacious floor plans with designer finishes.

Residents of Grandview at The Heights will have access to planned amenities including a sparkling pool and cabana area, splash park, grilling area, a basketball court and more. This neighborhood will offer a selection of spacious well-designed floor plans with designer kitchens, luxurious owner’s suites and flexible upgrade options with exceptional views of 255-acre Ward Lake.
