The waterfront community of Little Harbor in Ruskin was recently rebranded as Southshore Yacht Club. It launched its Phase II with a grand opening on March 24. The development will now be part of WCI Communities, a premier developer and builder of luxury homes in Florida and part of the Lennar family of companies.

Phase I of the community sold out in late 2017, and now work will start on Phase II.
Southshore Yacht Club will reveal new floor plans specially designed for waterfront homes, along with upgraded features including high-end kitchens and new community amenities. The homes in the community will range from the $300s to the $700s.

The community’s nine new floor plans, some of which are one story, have an open concept to allow for an impressive view of the water starting at the front door. In the second phase, there will be 88 homes on the canal, and 151 in total. Each waterfront home has the option to have a dock and boatlift.

The homes will have modern, upgraded luxury features available to buyers, which include a tankless gas hot water heater, quartz countertops, built-in double oven, gas stove cook top, and a tile roof.

“We’re enhancing Southshore Yacht Club’s waterfront lifestyle by offering WCI’s higher-end homes and features to homebuyers,” said Mark Metheny, Division President for Lennar Tampa, the parent company of WCI. “We’ve also made changes to our floor plans to appeal to a variety of buyers who want luxury living and a beautiful view.”

A dog park and clubhouse with a resort-style pool are also under construction and scheduled to be complete in July.

Southshore Yacht Club is located at 3023 Christophers Watch Lane in Ruskin, off U.S. 41 and Shell Point Road, near the waterfront Resort & Club at Little Harbor.
