Babcock Ranch is a rare treasure. It’s a place where you can step back in time and experience Florida in its natural state.
This unique community was born of an extraordinary private/public partnership between the State of Florida and Kitson & Partners that sought to preserve precious native Florida habitat while offering a unique opportunity to create the world’s most environmentally friendly, sustainable city. Fully 80% of the original 91,000 acre ranch, including all of the most environmentally sensitive lands, will remain in its pristine and protected form in perpetuity as The Babcock Ranch Preserve. In addition to the 73,000+ acre nature preserve, more than half of the remaining 17,000+ acres within the new city of Babcock Ranch will be dedicated to natural greenways, parks and lakes.
Like nowhere else in the world, Babcock Ranch residents will be able to co-exist with nature; in homes and businesses powered by the sun, transported via non-polluting electric vehicles, exploring miles of hiking and biking trails inside the community or endless acres of natural terrain in the neighboring preserve. And environmentally responsible businesses that understand the value of “walking the talk” of sustainability will see Babcock Ranch as the premiere location to operate from. Babcock Ranch is all about embracing nature and the environment we live in.Watch Nature Video
