The Elements at Southshore Bay

  • TOP

    Living in a Metro Places community means your home will be built by an award-winning builder with a focus on the best of design, eco-friendly features, attractive pricing and a friendly, helpful team of people. With many home options and builder choices, we make it easy to find the right fit.


    Want to dim the lights? Change the temperature? Set the security? It’s so simple here. 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.

  • DOG

    When we designed the community, we thought about all of our residents. Even the pooches. So the off-leash Dog Park is the perfect place to let them run wild. They’ll be begging you to take them everyday.


    Residents will have peace of mind with the additional benefit of a gated entry. Come and go as you please with remote access and call-in access for visitors.

  • LUSH

    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.


    “Get out and get going on our system of sidewalks, natural paths and trails that connect and cover several miles around the community. Cycle, walk, jog or skate. Whatever your route, you’ll find fun and adventure along the way.”

  • GOLF

    You don’t need a round of 18 anymore. Cruise into convenience as you get around in your own golf cart via our well-placed paths. You will be delighted to use these routes inside the community to visit neighbors or quickly get to all the fun .


    We believe that Green Space makes our neighborhoods special. A great place for events…or to kick the ball around…bring the pets…relax with a book…catch some sun…chase the kids…movie on the lawn…the list goes on and on.
