Newland Communities has selected ICI Homes to develop custom-built homes along FishHawk Ranch’s pristine community lake. The Daytona Beach-based luxury and custom-design homebuilder is expected to open its model home in late summer or early fall 2015, with presales beginning in September 2015.
FishHawk Ranch is owned in a joint venture partnership between NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH), the U.S. business unit and full subsidiary of SEKISUI HOUSE, LTD., Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and Newland Real Estate Group, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community. FishHawk Ranch is one of more than 30 communities the NASH-Newland partnership owns together in 11 states across the United States.
“We are thrilled to have ICI Homes join our outstanding team of builders,” said Pam Parisi, regional marketing director at Newland Communities. “Their rustic, but modern Lake House homes will be a perfect fit for the FishHawk Ranch community and a wonderful way to showcase the many amenities that make FishHawk Ranch so desirable, such as our wetlands and wildlife conservation areas, as well as 25 miles of walking trails.”
ICI Homes will build on 41 home sites. Each home will be set on irregularly shaped, scenic home sites to best view the picturesque grove of Live Oak trees and the community lake, while showcasing the homes’ indoor/outdoor living amenities. Plans will range from 2,400 to more than 4,000 sq. ft. The homebuilder is known throughout Florida for its eco-friendly, custom homes with “smart” and energy efficient features. With developments in Daytona Beach, Gainesville, Jacksonville and Orlando, ICI Homes was recently recognized with five awards for its luxury model homes in the 2015 Northeast Florida Builders Association Parade of Homes, which showcases builder model homes in the most prestigious communities in Northeast Florida, in addition to being named the Association’s 2014 Builder of the Year.
“ICI Homes is proud to partner with Newland Communities in an impressive community like FishHawk Ranch,” said Kirk Malone, ICI Homes’ Tampa division manager. “Our new designs are a perfect fit to best utilize each home site, and we hope everyone will visit the ICI model at FishHawk Ranch in the fall.”
