ORLANDO, Fla., June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennar, one of the nation's largest homebuilders, recently debuted a new touchstone for the American home that includes amenities such as rooftop solar, home automation and wall-to-wall connectivity as standard features in the aptly named Innovation at Storey Park. This gated community of 144 new homes underscores Lennar's leadership in reimagining the home to meet the needs of today's families.
Innovation at Storey Park – which includes Cottages, Manors and Estates – provides the first glimpse into Lennar's homes that allow families to do more, feel better and use less by living smarter. In addition to standard amenities such as home automation and high-speed data outlets, every home includes a state-of-the-art rooftop solar-energy system that produces up to 60% of the home's electricity – the first program of its kind in Florida.
"The average home in this country is 38 years old – long before people heard of the Internet," said Brock Nicholas, President of Lennar's Orlando division. "Our new homes reflect how people live today and come standard with the lifestyle conveniences once reserved for custom-built private estates."
Nicholas was joined for a ceremony on May 18, 2016 by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer to open Innovation at Storey Park as a model for highly efficient and technologically advanced communities. "Innovation at Storey Park is more than just another residential development, it is a testament to the strategic growth of our community and will provide quality housing options for our residents who desire to live in close proximity to both the Medical City at Lake Nona and the Orlando International Airport," said Mayor Dyer. "Moreover, it's a neighborhood that furthers our goals of being the City of the 21st Century with a focus on innovation by offering standard amenities that include rooftop solar, home automation and wall-to-wall connectivity."
Miami-based homebuilder Lennar Corp. (NYSE: LEN) was founded in 1954 and is today the nation's second largest home builder.
