Slated to open in early 2015, the gated-community will showcase Standard Pacific Homes' thoughtful community planning and all-new home designs. A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Wednesday, June 11 at 11:00 a.m.

"Raintree will bring a truly unique blend of townhome and single-family homes to the highly-desirable Pembroke Pines area," said Dan Grosswald, South Florida President for Standard Pacific Homes. "We are designing brand new floor plans that cater to today's lifestyles blending timeless architecture with casual luxury all within a prestigious, highly-amenitized setting."

The new community will offer a mix of six single-family home designs and six townhome designs to choose from. The single-family homes will range from 2,100 to 3,378 square feet and offer up to four bedrooms and four and one-half baths. Ranging in size from 1,604 to 1,927 square feet, the townhome designs will offer up to three bedrooms and three and one-half baths.  All of the homes will showcase Standard Pacific Homes' innovative new architectural concepts including Great Room centered floor plans that meld into gourmet kitchens, outdoor living spaces and luxurious master suites. 

"The City of Pembroke Pines is a great supporter of small business and economic development, and Raintree fits perfectly into our comprehensive plan," said Frank C. Ortis, Mayor of Pembroke Pines. "I believe Raintree will be a wonderful addition to the neighborhood and Pembroke Pines."

Raintree's community design includes a stunning lake and a recreation center which features a state-of-the-art clubhouse and swimming pool. The community is ideally situated in close proximity to extensive shopping and dining options offered at Pembroke Lakes Mall and The Shops at Pembroke Gardens, an upscale open-air shopping and dining experience.
