5 Reasons Why South Florida’s Arden Sets the Standard for “Agrihood” Communities Nationwide

Aspiring GentlemanView Article
By Justin Grau -September 23, 2019

Lifestyle communities are fast becoming a popular choice for families and individuals across the country. They offer specific social and recreational features tailored to the interests of residents. Now, Arden, South Florida’s first “Agrihood,” is setting the standard for health and wellness-focused amenities.

Developed by Freehold Communities, Arden offers healthy, sustainable living at its finest with a sprawling five-acre farm and bright red community barn. Arden’s residents share in regular harvests of farm-fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Arden was recently honored with the prestigious 2019 Grand Aurora “Master-Planned Community of the Year” Award. So, it should come as no surprise that everyone is talking about Arden – including its happier, healthier residents!

Here are the top five reasons why residents tell me they love Arden:

  1. Farm-to-Table Living Year-Round: Arden’s farm is developed and maintained by two experienced, full-time farm directors. Not only do residents share in the harvests but they can also take classes in the barn and volunteer to help plant and tend the community’s crops. The farm and garden also offer families the opportunity to learn about the full spectrum of food production and healthy eating.
  2. A Huge Lakehouse, Sparkling Pools and Top Fitness Facilities. Arden’s stunning Lakehouse with resort-style pools, spacious fitness center, on-demand Wellbeats exercise studio, and state-of-the-art equipment, offers residents the ultimate in healthier living.
  3. Endless Special Events and Activities. Residents of all ages enjoy Arden’s unlimited special events and activities that help ensure a warm, vibrant social life among neighbors. From wine and craft beer tasting nights to movies under the stars to family fishing days, each event is designed to further strengthen bonds within families and the entire community.
  4. The Best in Outdoor Sports and Leisure Activities. Kayaking, fishing and picnicking are just steps away from residents’ front doors. Arden also offers four illuminated tennis courts, basketball and pickleball courts, a soccer field, playgrounds, lakeside pavilion, an event lawn, fishing pier, and community boat ramp.
  5. Location, Location, Location: Arden is centrally located in the heart of Palm Beach County, so residents are close to Florida’s beautiful white sand beaches, as well as major highways like Florida’s Turnpike and I-95, and the best in dining, shopping and entertainment.

Ultimately, Arden is setting the pace for the future of lifestyle communities as the popular “Agrihood” concept continues to go mainstream!

Featured Speaker Kenneth Endelson of Kenco Communities discusses his parcel in Arden and coming soon Avenir at the South Florida 2019 Realtor Revolution Conference

Kenneth Endelson, discusses why his estate homes are differentiated because the luxury standard feature, large lots, lake views and excellent schools at Arden. Held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, the conference featured a key panel that focused on region’s latest housing trends.

According to state economists, the population of Florida will continue to boom as more than 330,000 people, or an estimated 900 people each day, move to the Sunshine State. Ultimately, by the year 2024, Florida’s population will increase to 22.8 million residents. Akel outlined that the shrinking availability of land for new homes, combined with the massive influx of people, will inevitably lead developers and public sector decision-makers to implement innovative ways to enable developers to build more housing.

Ken also gave mention of his new project just announced. “We are building in Palm Beach Gardens next in a community called Avenir.”

The Realtor® Revolution Conference’s Developer Panel represented a who’s who of South Florida experts. In addition to Akel, they included Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences Founder Dilip Barot, Cavache Properties Managing Partner Adam Adache, Kenco Communities Chairman Kenneth Endelson, and Label & Co. President Harry Posin. The moderator was Florida Realtors® 2019 President Eric Sain.

Arden Wins Aurora Awards named “Masterplanned Community of the Year”

Builder View Article

August 13, 2019

 

Freehold Communities has announced that its two South Florida communities have won three of the top awards – the Grand Awards – from the annual Aurora competition sponsored by the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) and the Southeast Building Conference (SEBC).

Arden, the “agrihood” in Palm Beach County, was named “Masterplanned Community of the Year,” while its themed recreation center, The Barn, was named “Best Recreational Facility or Amenity.”

Shearwater in St. Augustine was named “Best Community Site Plan.” Arden also received the Silver Award for” Best Single Family Detached Model Home – 3,000 to 3,499 square feet,” and “Best Site Plan.”

The Aurora competition honors the best design trends in the Southeast U.S. The 2019 Aurora Awards included entries in 54 categories for attached and detached housing designs, including interior design, detailing, custom and re-use and renovation work. Also honored are diverse commercial, recreational and specialty buildings, as well as land planning achievements.

Headquartered in Boston, and founded in 2013, Freehold is currently developing eight master plans throughout the United States.

“The Aurora Awards signify the very best in planning, design and development, qualities we continually strive to achieve in our communities,” said Freehold Southeast Division president Andy Smith. “The recognition by these respected industry leaders tops a year of successes and milestones for both Arden and Shearwater. We are extremely honored that they were recognized as the very best from Aurora judges.”

Set on 1,209 acres, Arden includes a mile-long central lake, 20 miles of trails, and 500 acres of parks and open space. The heart of Arden is its community farm, which has received national recognition. Under the direction of two experienced Farm Directors, the Arden Farm celebrates Florida’s agricultural abundance through year-round production, while it brings the community together for healthful events such as tropical fruit tastings, farm-to-table cooking demonstrations, tree planting events and resident volunteer days on the farm.

Earlier this year, Arden unveiled its 4,000-square-foot Barn, which won Aurora’s Grand Award for Best Recreational Facility or Amenity. The Barn is where residents gather for seasonal themed events and workshops on topics from organic gardening to flower arranging. The Barn includes Arden General Store, providing residents a unique experience offering Florida-made goods that prioritize community and environmental impact. These include local and organic vegetables, fruits, coffees, teas, honey, popsicles, ceramics, and natural body care products.

Shearwater is a 1,524-acre, 2,600-lot community with 13 miles of walking trails through 600 acres of preserved habitat, parks, fields, lakes and canoe/kayak access to Trout Creek. Like Arden, Shearwater combines abundant recreational amenities with a wealth of social spaces.

Shearwater’s many recreational amenities – central to its award-winning land plan – include natural open spaces: trails, parks and preserved habitat, including Trout Creek with kayak and canoe access. At the heart of this nature-themed community is the Kayak Club, the inviting hub for all residents. Its many recreational amenities include a resort-style pool with three-story waterslide, a Junior Olympic competition lap pool, and a lazy river, all set within lush landscaping and spacious lounge areas.

Even Shearwater’s homes connect indoors and outdoors. Some floor plans feature multi-slide doors flooding the room with natural light. Other homes offer doors that collapse to create a seamless transition from living room to the spacious outdoors.
