Waterside takes shape
SMR expands Lakewood Ranch life into Sarasota County.
Live Florida to the fullest.
Waterside isn’t just a place for living. It’s a place for shopping. For dining. For exploring and adventuring. Where glistening lakes meet coastal architecture. Where kayaks and canoes are as welcome as strollers and bicycles. Where scenic views are second only to beautiful streetscapes. From local markets to seasonal festivals, and from parks to nature trails, Waterside was crafted for community.
Lakewood Ranch Waterside is the newest village in Lakewood Ranch, an award-winning community within the historic 30,000 acre Schroeder-Manatee Ranch located in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Schroeder-Manatee Ranch, Inc. and its subsidiaries provide the 3,500 acre Waterside community with real estate management, real estate development and real estate services for this mixed used project that will feature 12 neighborhoods containing various residential product types, including single family homes, condominiums and rental apartments, all nestled among seven lakes and just a short stroll from the restaurants, retail and office spaces in the lakefront village center.
Lakewood Ranch is made up of 16 distinct villages where residents enjoy everything from private golf course communities to family-friendly neighborhoods conveniently located near schools, plus a vibrant Main Street, nature trails and much more.
We believe that living amongst nature should go hand-in-hand with being kind to it. That’s why all homes built at Lakewood Ranch use green practices. In fact, Lakewood Ranch is one of the largest green master-planned communities in the U.S., and its history of successful land management and strong financial planning make it not only a sound investment but a great place to live, work and raise a family
