  • METRO
    GOES PLACES

    Introducing our newest team member, mascot and best buddy traveler – METRO. This friendly little guy loves to explore all things Metro Places, Metro Lagoons (with special employee pass) and all of Tampa Bay! We definitely live in the best city and area in the world and METRO is more than happy to check it all out and post his adventures on social media as he goes from Wesley Chapel, Downtown Tampa, Southern Hillsborough, Bradenton and all points in between. If you see him, be sure to say hello! Follow METRO @MetroGoesPlaces

  • TOP
    BUILDERS

    A big part of what makes Metro Places so great is our awesome builders. Top Builders means homes built by award-winning builders with a focus on the best of design, eco-friendly features, attractive pricing and friendly, helpful  sales agents. With many floor plans and front elevations to choose from and with Metro Places being communities with multi-builders, we keep our communities from looking “cookie-cutter” but still uniform in overall style which is ideal for your new living environment.

  • DOG
    PARK

    When we designed our communities, we thought about all of our residents. Even the pooches. So the off-leash Dog Park we’ve designed for your loyal and obedient friends is the place to let them run wild. Lots of cool shade and places to keep them hydrated on hot days. They’ll be sitting up and begging you to take them there everyday.

  • GATED
    ENTRY

    Metro Places that include the key-icon in their amenity package mean that they are part of a gated enclave of homes. With remote access for themselves and call-in access for visitors, homeowners can enjoy this added benefit and peace of mind. Regardless of whether or not the community entry is gated, all of our clubhouses and pool areas are gated areas and are restricted to residents-only with exclusive key-fob access.

  • LUSH
    LANDSCAPING

    Green grass, trees, plants and flowers run abundant at Metro Places with our beautiful landscape design but it extends to so much more than that. The landscape of our communities extends to our hard-scape plans too. With bridges, towers, upgraded street signs and light posts, winding roads that curve and elevate…the big and small details that make you feel a sense of neighborhood, a sense of special, a sense of home.

  • MILES
    OF TRAILS

    Our exciting trail system covers several miles around the community, and connects with several destinations outside our walls. Perfect for walkers, runners, hikers and bikers. Whatever your escape route, you’ll discover lots of fun points of interest along the way.

  • GOLF
    CART PATHS

    You don’t need to hit a round of 18 to enjoy the coolest mode of transportation. With Golf Cart Paths in select Metro Places communities, you can enjoy the fun and convenience of getting around in your own golf cart via our well-placed paths. You will be delighted to use these routes inside the communities to visit neighbors or to easily get to the clubhouse, pool or tennis courts. Best part is, our paths are designed to connect with golf cart roads situated in town, right outside of our communities to best ensure a true Florida lifestyle.

  • GREEN
    SPACE

    Some of our communities have a traditional Landing. Others have Passive Parks — whatever you call it we are just so happy to have these areas in our communities. Metro Places believes that aside from homes and amenities, that Green Space goes a long way to make our neighborhoods special. A great place for our events…or to kick the ball around…bring the pets…relax with a book…catch some sun…tumble with the kids…movie on the lawn…the list goes on and on.

  • SMART
    HOMES

    Every home in our ULTRAFi communities is built to be a Smart Home. Want to dim the lights? Change the temperature? Set the security? It’s so simple here in an ULTRAFi Community. Once you download the app, you can adjust it all from across the room or across town. Your new home comes with smart controlled features already in place and of course you can always add more — up to you if you want a few switches and cameras or a full suite of smart home automation.

  • COMMUNITY
    EVENTS

    One of the things that make Metro Places so special is not just the word “community” as a collection of houses, but a sense of community where neighbors come together as friends. Community Events range from socials by the pool to gatherings with the kids, costume contests for Halloween, and fun times during Fourth of July, Labor Day and more! Events vary by community.

  • METRO
    iLights

    Life just got brighter! We are thrilled to announce the launch of Metro iLights by Metro Development Group and exclusive to their select Metro Places communities. These have been installed as the first-of-its-kind Smart Solar Street Lights in the USA! The smart technology can auto dim during inactivity and automatically go to full strength when someone walks or drives by. The lights are eco-friendly because of their low energy usage and because they do not disturb nocturnal wildlife. Coolest part is they can be managed remotely from a smartphone which makes these the perfect lights for our growing Connected City. Innovation lives here!

     

  • ACTIVE
    ADULT SECTION

    55+ means that there is a gated Active Adult section inside this lagoon community, a community with homes for everyone! Metro Places is proud to feature the first Active Adult product by  Lennar, these homes are in the Medley Collection. Rather than an entire community made-up of age-restricted homeownership, we provide the popular option of creating Active Adult enclaves inside some of our most popular community destinations. Here you will find that exterior home maintenance is worry-free and included in your monthly HOA fees. Look for details coming soon about these Active Adult areas having their own exclusive pools, clubhouses, cafes, pickleball courts and more. Get ready for a vacation-lifestyle right where you call home.
