At Babcock Ranch, we’re wild about life! We believe in the importance of Civitas – a basic hometown pride and a calling to participate and belong. Civitas is the foundation that unites us and is defined by the pride we take in this place where we live, learn, work, and play. We each contribute to the expanding story of our town, and celebrate the individual and collective memories, achievements, and milestones that are the rich stuff of life.
At Babcock Ranch, we would rather walk or ride a bike than drive. We are stewards of the environment, and proud to say our town is the first solar town in the country. We know one another and call each other by name. We love Babcock’s green spaces, lakes, trails, and preserves just as we appreciate the timeless styles of our neighborhoods and places of learning and commerce. The future of our town is sustained by the sheer joy we take in living here. We invite you to join us in creating that future!
WHERE IS BABCOCK RANCH?
Bordered by the 73,000-acre Babcock Ranch Preserve and the 65,000-acre Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area, Babcock Ranch is at the epicenter of Southwest Florida’s newest growth corridor, just 20 minutes east of downtown Fort Myers,
Situated 20 miles north of Southwest Florida International Airport, Babcock Ranch offers both accessibility and a sense of place. Our days begin with sunshine glittering through morning mist and end with moonbeams shimmering on glistening lakes. Forests of longleaf pines and majestic live oaks, the distant cries of wildlife, and streets that wind through neighborhoods where front porches serve as gathering places create a captivating tableau. This is Babcock Ranch – so close to all of Southwest Florida, so enjoyed by those who call it their own!
WHAT WILL THE TOWN BE LIKE?
Babcock Ranch will be a place where a choice of Town and Country residences will invite people to rediscover the real meaning of neighborhoods, where downtown is more than a place to shop or dine, and where the notion of walking, riding a bike, and enjoying a conversation on the green is the norm rather than the exception. This is a place where timeless architectural styles invite interaction and conjure recollections of a time when life was uncomplicated and enjoyed.

Babcock Ranch is a place that reflects a decidedly different approach to Town Making. The residences in the town’s neighborhoods will present timeless architectural designs that encourage social interaction and a strong sense of community. The Craftsman, Farmhouse, Coastal Gulf Vernacular, Spanish, and Colonial/West Indies architectural styles, each sourced in the pre-World War II Southwest Florida regional styles, will convey a familiar, comforting look and feel that recalls a simpler time when neighbors knew and cared about one another. Deep front porches positioned close to the sidewalks and streets will encourage conversations with passersby as well as invitations to neighbors to come sit and chat for a spell. Babcock’s neighborhoods will be places where the neighbor’s front porch is familiar as your own, where detached garages accessed by broad alleyways are typically situated behind the home to avoid dominating the streetscape, and where expansive green spaces serve as anchors for the neighborhood.
Fashioned with sustainable design principles and built to Florida Green Building Council requirements, Babcock’s Town and Country homes will present efficient designs and systems along with low impact landscaping that promotes water conservation and the use of solar energy. Simple detailing, shutters, overhangs, and design appropriate windows will foster design efficiencies that will contribute to a look that is elegant in its simplicity and comforting to the body and soul.
DOWNTOWN BABCOCK RANCH
Downtown Babcock Ranch is the heart and soul of the town and designed to foster the personal connection, personal well-being, and lifelong learning opportunities that are the core of the community’s way of life. Intermingled with a pleasing mix of single-family and multi-family residences, this is a place from a bygone era where the pace is relaxed, where people call one another by name, and where a lakefront green space invites leisurely social interaction. Places of learning and exploration, a wellness center, restaurants, specialty retail shops, a locally grown produce market, and indoor and outdoor gathering places will hold a magnetic appeal for walkers, bikers, and those being transported by autonomous vehicles. The setting will convey a comforting Main Street ambiance and invite the town’s residents to come as they are and enjoy all that downtown offers.
