Arbor Grande

Lakewood Ranch, Florida

Classically tailored to celebrate Florida’s outdoor lifestyle, the amenities at Arbor Grande reflect the community’s casual “front porch” way of life.

Arbor Grande is a private, gated community within Lakewood Ranch, the nation’s 4th-fastest selling community located near Sarasota, Florida.  Featuring 305 homes, including villas and single family homes, Arbor Grande residents celebrate Florida’s desirable outdoor lifestyle with two spectacular amenities that include a 7,000-sq-ft community clubhouse and fitness center, two resort-style pools with fountains and beach entries, outdoor pavilions, event lawns, dog parks, as well as a trails linking the community’s homesites to a major regional park.

ELM completed the community master plan, orienting homesites and common areas toward spectacular natural edges and committing nearly one-third of the property to ponds, parks, and landscape spaces added to enhance the outdoor living aspect for residents living in this community.
