About Lakewood Ranch
Lakewood Ranch (LWR) is a master-planned community located in Manatee and Sarasota Counties east of Interstate 75, and accessible from interchanges at University Parkway, State Road 70, State Road 64, and Fruitville Road. Lakewood Ranch is the 2nd fastest selling community in the United States, with approximately 33,000 residents in more than 20 villages.
With more than four-and-a half million square feet of current commercial development and entitlements for up to 14 million square feet, there is plenty of room to grow. Some 2,600 acres have been set aside for future development and mixed-use, campus style business parks, including CORE, a site for national life sciences and health care companies.
