The $10,000 perimeter lot premium will apply to the following thirty-four villas, as found on the site plan document: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68.

Medical approval and a signed Resident’s Agreement need to be complete 60 days prior to the start of construction. Thus, for Phase 1 villas, these parts of the process are estimated to take place during June 2019.

An intent deposit (recent $5,000) can can be applied to the 10% deposit (of entrance fee) collected at the time of selection/reservation. The wait list/Platinum Program deposit ($10,000 or $5,000 depending when you applied) goes toward the 65% (of entrance fee) final payment.

Move-ins will take place by neighborhood or cul-de-sac completion. As an example, Residents can move in when all of villas 1-13 are completed.

At this time, subject to change, villas 47-52 are expected to be completed and ready for move-in late fall 2020/early 2021.

SouthPointe Park depositors will soon receive a letter via U.S Mail that will outline next steps. The letter will describe the estimated timetable for 1) Resident’s Agreement signing, along with collection of the 25% deposit; and 2) options selections appointments.

We anticipate that groundbreaking for site preparation will occur in early fall (2019).

Villas 59-72 will be the last cluster to be constructed. Our best estimate at this time, subject to change, is that these will be ready for move-in very late in 2021 or very early in 2022.
