Leading the Way for a Lagoon Lifestyle


A Spectacle of Innovation

The team behind Crystal Lagoons’ groundbreaking technology has developed a sustainable method to build and maintain lagoons at low costs. Not only is the Lagoon a unique feature, but its acres of crystal-clear water and scenic shorelines make it an amenity that can’t be compared. The Lagoon keeps locals buzzing, residents busy, and news outlets in constant coverage of what is a stunning addition to a spectacular community.







    Metro Places is proud to offer the world’s top amenity! The introduction of Metro Lagoons by Crystal Lagoons® will forever change the way you view coastal living in the beautiful sunny state of Florida. We have brought the best of the coastline to some of the most rapidly growing and sought after areas, with crystal clear blue waters that span in size from 8 acres to over 12 acres. Each will be surrounded by shores of resort-style fun, beauty and tropical relaxation.


    Becoming a homeowner in an ULTRAFi Community means enjoying the fastest internet and WiFi speeds in North America! Enjoy up to 1 Gigabit of speed throughout the community and even choose up to 1 Gigabit of speed at home. Get ready to play, watch, game, surf and stream without delays or disruptions by the pool, on the trails, at the playground and right inside your home. Only available here, in select Metro Places communities.

  • TOP

    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.


    With the successful launch of ULTRAFi, Metro Development Group has created the first and only residential environment with up to an incredible 1 Gigabit of speed throughout our neighborhoods and available inside every home. This exclusive technology sets the framework for the Connected City and will boast an environment of Smart Homes, Smart Businesses and the most advanced schools, hospitals, libraries, transit and commerce imaginable. The Connected City will feature two communities, Epperson and Mirada – each with a multi-acre Crystal Lagoons amenity!

  • WIFI

    The fastest internet and WiFi speeds in the nation with our exclusive ULTRAFi technology means that our commitment to green space and passive parks does not mean a departure from your digital connections. Enjoy the great outdoors all the while being in touch with your digital world of videos, social media, emails and streaming music. Best part is, this is part of your community-wide WiFi so no worrying about your data plan.

  • FIRE

    S’mores Central may have been a better name since these Fire Pits are the perfect place for friends, family and the traditional campfire dessert. Granted, it’s not usually cold enough for the warmth of a fire here in Florida, but the fun and beauty of these Fire Pits make this a highly sought-after addition to any neighborhood.

  • DOG

    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.


    No need to drive for miles, park and search for a place to picnic…at select Metro Places communities you simply pack a bag, cooler or basket and go a short distance to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether it’s a gathering with friends, singing Happy Birthday or a light snack after a stroll on our trails — you’ll love having these shaded picnic tables to enjoy throughout the year.


    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.


    Whether it is a commitment to a healthy lifestyle with our active amenities or plans for an onsite HealthPlex, Metro Places is committed to promoting a wellness-focused environment right inside your community.  Metro Places features a mix of premier elements like Lagoons, walking/biking trails, fitness stations, tot lots, sports courts and green space to get you outdoors and feeling your best. The upcoming Connected City has plans to feature an impressive HealthPlex which will take advantage of ULTRAFi technology in bringing healthcare to the 21st century. We believe in the motto that “health is the new wealth” and it is time to reinvent, reimagine and improve on the concept of healthy living.


    The feel of summer is always here in our Florida-lifestyle communities and our outdoor grills are the perfect compliment. We’ve placed these grills poolside to complete the resort-style fun that our homeowners love. So grab your apron, your chef’s hat and some hamburger buns because it’s time to get your grill on!


    It’s just so charming! We have searched high and low in shops near and far to bring together our collection of beautiful birdhouses perched high in a circular passive park for visitors of all ages to enjoy. We invite you to make this part of your daily walk or take a seat to see and hear all the wonderful birds that come to visit.

  • 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.


    Roads, routes and paths designed exclusively for autonomous cars, golf carts and eventually for our planned in-community shuttles. These paths will pave the way in our new tech-advanced Connected City. For an entire city built around the promise of the future, we have already mapped out these roads for autonomous technology.


    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.


    Moms and dads will love that our littlest residents get their own space to burn off all that kid-sized energy. The Tot Lot features a great big play structure for kids to climb up, jump around and slide down. As a topper, there’s a shady canopy over the whole shebang.

  • GOLF

    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.
