Jupiter, Florida: Where Are the New Homes?
March 26, 2016 | Richard Sites
The question might really be where AREN’T there new homes? The building boom of the early 2000’s has been eclipsed by what is happening now. Unfortunately, the price of new construction in Jupiter and the surrounding area is skyrocketing with most new homes starting in the mid-$600,000’s.
Let’s take a look at what is currently available in the major developments around the Jupiter area.
Homes by CalAtlantic located on the northwestern side of Jupiter near Tequesta. 127 homes are situated on 295 wooded acres. Home sites range from half acre to one and a half acres in size and homes start at 3,199 feet to over 5,800 square feet. Prices start in the low $800’s. The location is on Island Way which wraps around the NW corner of Jupiter and provides easy access to the Florida Turnpike and I-95 as well as Jupiter Community Park.
Also located on the western side of Jupiter, these Lennar homes have been some of the most popular around. There are nearly 600 homes here and the prices have nearly doubled since they were first offered. Rialto is a popular community for young families not looking for golf club or country club amenities. The feeling is similar to Evergrene in Palm Beach Gardens.
Jupiter Country Club:
A Toll Brothers community built west of the Town of Jupiter and the Florida Turnpike. A classic Toll Brothers layout, like Frenchman’s Reserve in Palm Beach Gardens, estate homes and carriage homes are situated along a Greg Norman Signature golf course. There is a small clubhouse, Palestra, but no expansive setting like Admirals Cove. Carriage homes sell in the mid-$500’s and estate homes are priced near a million. Other Toll Brothers communities in this area include Frenchman’s Harbor and The Preserve in Juno Beach.
Located on the south side of Indiantown Road, these nearly 300 Divosta built homes are across the street from Jupiter Country Club but will not have any amenities. The community is populated with lakes and homes start in the mid-$600’s. Divosta homes have long been popular in this area and the list of other communities where they are built includes The Bluffs, The Hamptons, Oaks East, Lake Catherine and on and on. These homes however, are a new level in home building for them and reflect the rising prices in Jupiter and the demands of today’s consumer.
Another Divosta community located on the northern side of Abacoa. Abacoa is a collection of 18 distinct neighborhoods on the south side of Jupiter where it meets Palm Beach Gardens. Windsor Park is the final development phase. Sales have been very brisk as they are for all Divosta properties. Homes have a more traditional feel to them than Sonoma Isles but the prices are close to the million dollar mark. One attraction is the ideal, central location.
Technically in Juno Beach, Bay Colony is close to Jupiter and the ocean. Located on the Intracoastal Waterway, there is an older phase and new construction. The new units here, priced over $600,000, have docks as well.
Again, technically in Juno Beach, this development is right at the corner where Juno meets Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter on the Intracoastal Waterway. This Toll Brothers community offers waterfront living for all. Carriage homes start in the $600’s and estate homes directly on the Intracoastal will run you over $3 million.
Finally, the new mega-project called Alton is underway in Palm Beach Gardens. Construction has just begun by Kolter with 2,500 homes and condos planned. Prices will be similar to other developments in the area.
